Upholding Ethical Recruitment Standards with PEACEME and CCRC

Ethical recruitment is realized by promoting respect for the rights of migrant workers, enhancing transparency and accountability in recruitment, and advancing the ‘Employer Pays’ Principle – because no worker should pay for a job.

Organizations like PEACEME continue to work hand in hand with other associations to uphold ethical standards to help recruitment agencies in the Philippines handle thoughtful selection and prompt placement that ensures a fair and efficient process for Filipinos seeking better opportunities abroad.


Business Meeting Overview

Last November, PEACEME and the Coordinating Council for Recruitment Companies (CCRC) held a 2-day business meeting to champion ethical recruitment and to engage with the Department of Migrant Workers (DMW) in Manila, Philippines.

The two parties initially met at the Rockwell Club to prepare for the subsequent DMW meeting on Nov. 13. The following day, discussions continued at the Department of Migrant Workers Office, covering topics such as the jointly crafted Code of Conduct.

The associations highlighted areas for improvement in processes and regulations, specifically focusing on operationalizing the ‘Green Lane’ initiative for mega recruitment agencies. The initiative aims to expedite the deployment of workers for these agencies, making the process faster and more efficient – even as worker protection is not compromised.

PEACEME Chairman and Staffhouse International Resources Managing Director Marc Capistrano was present during the meetings and shared his enthusiasm for propelling safe and ethical hiring to protect Overseas Filipino Workers and help recruitment agencies in the Philippines employ ethically.

“We have been working with CCRC for more than a year now and are happy to share with DMW that we have jointly crafted and agreed on a Code of Conduct between our two associations – one that is guided by the ILO’s principles on Fair Recruitment – and one that is anchored on adherence to law, transparency, respect for worker’s rights, and mutual commitment and cooperation,” said Capistrano during the event.



PEACEME is an association dedicated to enhancing the overseas employment industry in collaboration with the Department of Migrant Workers.

The Code of Conduct reflects the commitment of PEACEME and CCRC to elevate the ethical recruitment standards of their member companies. And while doing so, both organizations remain committed to continue to collaborate with DMW in enhancing the efficient deployment of Overseas Filipino Workers while prioritizing improved protection for migrant workers.

The recent business meeting between PEACEME and CCRC is an important step in supporting the DMW in ensuring that recruitment firms adhere to ethical hiring standards and safeguard the well-being and rights of OFWs (Overseas Filipino Workers).
