Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
The Group continues to review its supply chain in line with identifiable risks and ensure this information is shared within the Group. The Group is also in the process of creating global procurement principles which will be shared as a recommendation across the Group.
The Group operates a number of policies that mitigate the risk of modern slavery and set out steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in its operations.
The Group encourages all its workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the supply chains of, the organisation. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. The Group’s whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation. Employees, clients and customers or others who have concerns can use our confidential helpline.
Recruitment and Selection
The Group uses only specified, reputable employment agencies to source labour. All entities in the Group ensure appropriate controls are in place to ensure employees have the right to work and are therefore protected by employment legislation. This includes checking right-to-work documents, visas and passports.
The Group does not employ individuals that would be considered to be ‘child workers’. Young and inexperienced workers may be employed or given work experience, but they are subject to the rights and protections that we afford all workers.
Basic rights which we expect all workers to enjoy, include:
- The right to a reasonable wage
- The right to a safe working environment
- The right to an appropriate level of holiday and cover for period of sickness
- The freedom to complain directly via our whistleblowing policy free of charge, if they believe that they are not being fairly treated or have any other concerns.
