Our policies on slavery and human trafficking

Our internal policies show our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.

We operate a number of internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:

1.Safe Recruitment. We operate a robust recruitment framework, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK and ROI, contracts of employment, and checks for all directly employees, and contractors.

2. Equal Opportunities. We have a range of controls to protect staff from poor treatment and/or exploitation, which comply with all respective laws and regulations. These include provision of fair pay rates, fair terms and conditions of employment, and access to training and development opportunities.

3. Safeguarding Policy. We adhere to the principles inherent within our safeguarding children and adults’ policies. These provide clear guidance so that our employees understand their responsibilities and know how to raise safeguarding concerns about how colleagues or people receiving our services are being treated, or about practices within our business or supply chain.

4. Whistleblowing Policy: The organisation encourages all its workers, customers and other business partners to report any concerns related to the direct activities, or the suppliers of the organisation. This includes any circumstances that may give rise to an enhanced risk of slavery or human trafficking. The organisation’s whistleblowing procedure is designed to make it easy for workers to make disclosures, without fear of retaliation.

5. Anti-Bribery and Corruption. This code explains the way we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.

Training

All new employees receive orientation training which includes guidance and information on a company’s mission, values and policies and procedures and workplace code of conduct.

The training content and procedures are regularly reviewed to ensure they remain appropriate and up to date.
