October 23, 2023 – Stronger Together US is proud to recognize CIERTO Global, for achieving Clearview certification. CIERTO has achieved certification with ‘Leading’ status, the highest tier available under the certification program.  

Clearview is a global responsible recruitment certification program that enables certified labor recruiters and labor providers to demonstrate that they operate at the highest standards in their sourcing and supply of workers. The Clearview audit process focuses on evaluating the recruitment and working conditions faced by temporary, seasonal, and migrant workers in labor supply chains.  

To achieve certification, CIERTO Global underwent a rigorous independent audit of its recruitment management systems. A US-based audit body, trained and licensed in the Clearview methodology, assessed CIERTO across a set of technical standards and control points developed by industry experts and mapped against leading international and national practices and standards such as the IOM International Recruitment Integrity System (IRIS) code of conduct, the ILO Fair Recruitment initiative, the Institute of Business and Human Rights Dhaka Principles and Employer Pays Principle, Ethical Charter on Responsible Labor Practices, and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. 

Farm labor contractors (FLCs) and recruiters such as CIERTO provide essential services to U.S. agribusinesses who are facing labor shortages. FLCs step in to recruit and often manage, domestic farmworkers in the U.S. and migrant farmworkers from nearby countries through the H-2A visa program. FLCs also can recruit H-2A and H-2B workers for other industries. Poor recruitment practices, however, can leave workers vulnerable to unsafe and illegal working conditions. 

“In a landscape where the demand for ethical and fair labor practices is paramount, CIERTO Global’s attainment of Clearview certification at the ‘Leading’ status is a testament to their commitment to ensuring the well-being and fair treatment of workers through responsible recruitment,” explains Jantine Werdmuller von Elgg, Co-CEO, Stronger Together. “Stronger Together US proudly stands with CIERTO Global, celebrating their success and the positive impact it brings to the agricultural industry.” 

“Our business prides itself on offering recruitment services in-line with the highest standards, as the Clearview certification has reinforced. We have always focused on a worker-centric culture, going above and beyond for the workers we place. We are thrilled this has been recognized through Clearview and want this trend to continue in North America where employers gain further trust with recruiters, who have demonstrated their commitment to ethical compliance and regulations,” says Joe Martinez, CEO CIERTO Global. “Through Clearview certification, CIERTO continues to demonstrate our mission to be a best-in-class FLC and a voice for advancing the principles of responsible recruitment in the U.S. Fresh Produce industry. We support these certifications becoming industry standard to better protect all actors in the supply chain.” 

Increasingly, there is an expectation for businesses to demonstrate strong commitments to upholding human rights and maintaining supply chains that are free from labor exploitation. Working with a Clearview certified organization that adheres to stringent ethical standards puts supply chain partners ahead in fulfilling this demand for more transparency, compliance, and sustainability.  

In 2021, AgriLabor and AgSocio became the first FLCs to achieve Clearview certification.   FLCs and their clients interested in learning more about Clearview, please email infousa@stronger2gether.org.
