“The idea of creating digital platform for migrant workers and businesses will be extremely helpful in formalising recruitment and enhancing transparency for both, as workers get exploited by mediators, whereas businesses do not have any proper mechanism for formalising the recruitment process.”

“WorkersJoint Program is an unique initiative and it’s the requirement of today’s scenario.”

Ms. Kartika Agarwal, Owner, Breatch

“पहली बार किसी ने हमारे हकों की बात कही है , अगर आप हमे किसी स्थायी रोजगार से जोड़ देंगे तो इस से अच्छा क्या होगा”

“First time someone has spoken about our rights. If you are able to connect us with some stable job, nothing can be better for us.”

“इससे बेहतर क्या होगा की आप हमारे दरवाजे पे आकर हमे ऐसे सुविधा दे रहे हैं, बैठे बैठे हमारी जानकारी कारखानों तक पहुँच जाएगी – ऐसे हमे बिचौलियों को पैसा नहीं देना पड़ेगा और हमे हमारी मेहनत का सही भुगतान मिल पायेगा”

“What could be better for us? You have come to our doorstep to take our information and you will give this information to business units. This way we are saved from spending on middle men and we will be able to get right price for our work.”

“There is an urgent requirement of operational guidance related to recruitment of migrant workers in the garment industries specially after the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“Recruitment practice of migrant workers should be free from biases. The process should be easy and less time taking.”

“This pandemic has shown many faces of unorganized sector. There are a huge number of Interstate migrant workers in the garment industries. Investing in employees by offering trainings and up-skilling should be very effective.”

The Program

The four pillars of WorkersJoint program are

1. Build the database of informal workers and connect them with Businesses through a tech platform

The program will create individual profiles of informal workers on the WorkersJoint tech platform. The profiles will be segregated in production sector, place, gender, and employable skills. This database will be provided to the employer companies in the manufacturing sector linked with the program for their recruitment and production outsourcing needs.

2. Recognize the skills of the informal workers

Informal workers registered on WorkersJoint will receive an opportunity to go through a skill test process endorsed by the employer industries and related sector skill councils of India. The program will work towards building a system to recognize the prior learning and skills of the informal workers. This recognition will improve the visibility of the skilled workers and, as a result, their opportunities to get better wages and working conditions.

3. Link informal workers with bank accounts and government social security schemes

The workers will be supported to open or activate their bank accounts and register with the government social security schemes.
