US fresh produce businesses face an ongoing challenge of recruiting enough workers to meet harvesting needs to satisfy consumer demand. Workers recruited through the H-2A program are increasingly important to US businesses, however, cross-border recruitment can add complexity and risk to both workers and business.

Already used globally, the Responsible Recruitment Toolkit (RRT) online tool helps recruiters build resilience to these challenges through ethical and professional recruitment and labor management practices. By subscribing to the tool, recruiters can access practical responsible recruitment guidance and use the self-assessment functionality to track their progress and share achievements with clients. Specialized guidance is now available on the tool for US fresh produce in both English and Spanish.
