MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
INTRODUCTION FROM THE MANAGING DIRECTOR
We are committed to continually improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain, often in horrendous conditions which the victim cannot escape. Businesses have a key part to play in the effort to tackle this crime and protect vulnerable workers from exploitation and is an area we take extremely seriously, being aware of the possibility of our services being abused by traffickers.
We implement stringent procedures in relation to the hiring of employees and temporary staff, as well as where we employ the services of third party organisations, in order to alert us of any signs of modern slavery.
Below we set out the steps we take to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking occurring within our organisation or its supply chains.
Our business is organised into three key business units:
- Hotel Management Solutions
- Recruitment Management Solutions
- Revenue Management Management Solutions
OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
Our supply chains include, but are not limited to, sourcing temporary staff for our clients, as well as for our own direct hospitality services. We expect our suppliers and potential suppliers to aim for high ethical standards and to operate in an ethical, legally-compliant and professional manner by adhering to our Supplier Code of Conduct. We also expect our suppliers to promote similar standards in their own supply chain.
OUR POLICIES ON SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
DUE DILIGENCE PROCESSES FOR SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we conduct a high level of due diligence on our recruitment procedures and supply chain network to ensure compliance with all legislative and regulatory requirements.
We have in place systems to:
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Protect whistleblowers.
SUPPLIER ADHERENCE TO OUR VALUES
We have zero-tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we continue to monitor the supply chain by conducting regular levels of due diligence.
We have a compliance team, which consists of involvement from the following departments:
- Human Resources
To ensure our staff is well aware of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking and to mitigate the chances of such a situation developing in our supply chains we shall continue to build our staff’s capacity to maintain complete safety.
We shall continue to review the effectiveness of the steps we have taken to ensure active vigilance against slavery or human trafficking.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the operating year starting March 2021.
