SLAVERY HAS BECOME AN URGENT TOPIC IN BUSINESS PRACTICES. RETAILERS, SUPPLIERS, PRIVATE AND PUBLIC SECTOR… ADDRESSING LABOUR ISSUES IS ON EVERY BUSINESS AGENDA.
Supply Chain sustainability is about looking after every single worker in your supply chain. There is now a minimum requirement you may wish to comply with, or taking things a step further to full responsibility and transparency. And for those earning £36m in revenue, the Modern Slavery Act Section 54 now requires businesses to submit an anti slavery and human trafficking report.
about THE ASSESSMENT
Our Modern Slavery Assessment enables businesses to clearly identify what policies, processes and practices are present within their organisation and what influence they have on preventing modern slavery within the organisation. The assessment produce a modern slavery report pin pointing any areas that need amending or halting because they are potentially high risk as well as highlighting areas of excellence.
The assessment is employer-based, meaning a member of management will complete the assessment. It can be completed periodically to easily track any progress/changes on our sophisticated reporting platform.
