November 4th, 2021, Washington, D.C. – Labor Mobility Partnerships’ (LaMP) initiative to strengthen and unlock the value of quality recruitment within the H-2A seasonal agricultural workers program has received support from the Walmart Foundation.
LaMP will work with leading H-2A recruiters and key stakeholders in the ag labor supply chain to support the growth and development of professional, quality recruitment operations in North American agriculture. The initiative represents an opportunity for industry partners to engage in making professional recruitment the standard business practice. LaMP’s approach focuses on market-compatible strategies and solutions to recruitment challenges with the ultimate goal of making H-2A work better for everyone.
“Quality recruitment industries that protect workers and deliver for employers are fundamental to the success and development impact of labor mobility systems,” says Rebekah Smith, LaMP’s Executive Director. “This project, generously supported by the Walmart Foundation, is core to LaMP’s strategy to develop a blueprint for sustainable quality recruitment in labor mobility systems worldwide.”
Labor Mobility Partnerships (LaMP) is a field-builder developing scalable solutions for workers from low-income countries to access quality jobs across borders. LaMP’s purpose is to increase access to job opportunities for half a billion workers from low-income countries by 2050.
