Who we are
We work across three continents and within multiple sectors with many organisations to achieve our wider vision of a world where all workers are recruited responsibly and have fair work, free from exploitation.
Meet the team
Our dedicated global team brings together a variety of direct business experience, from across a range of sections and functions (ethical trade, sustainability, HR, procurement, supply chain management and more) which gives us a unique perspective in our approach and the services we offer.
We work in collaboration with strategic sector and in-country partners. At the heart of what we do are the jobseekers and workers for whom we want to make a difference.
Our vision is a world where all workers are recruited responsibly and have fair work free from exploitation.
Our mission is working together to enable organisations to embed responsible recruitment and employment practices and mitigate labour exploitation in their operations and supply chains.
Our expertise and approach
We specialise in responsible recruitment, fair work and tackling labour exploitation. We provide practical, innovative solutions, based on established international standards and methodologies, to drive effective human rights due diligence in global supply chains. We can help you identify your business’s and supply chain’s biggest challenges and deliver pragmatic solutions and resources that your business can implement to improve and demonstrate good practice.
That’s not all. We mobilise and facilitate collaboration amongst private sector stakeholders to achieve systemic change at scale. We also work with multiple stakeholders including response and remedy providers, civil society organisations, law enforcement and government.

In 2004, a TV exposé revealed widespread exploitation of migrant workers supplied by a recruitment business to a UK fruit processing plant and other factories. At the time, the UK business community had a limited understanding and knowledge of this model of exploitation, or what they could or should do about it.
Our founder David Camp began working in the sector to support businesses to put systems in place to prevent this hidden labour exploitation. It soon became clear that this was happening on a large scale, with what seemed to be a network of exploiters controlling workers for their own gain.
A large-scale problem required a large-scale solution. David approached UK supermarkets with his idea, five retailers joined and in 2013, Stronger Together was born.
Since our beginning, our footprint and mission have grown. Today we are the one-stop shop for businesses for support to enable them to embed responsible recruitment and fair work, and mitigate labour exploitation in their operations and supply chains.
