Our processes for managing risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes with our suppliers:
When engaging with suppliers, we ask for evidence of their processes and policies, including commitments around modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, human rights, and whistle-blowing.
We review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
Additionally, we have taken the following steps to minimise the possibility of any problems:
We reserve the right to conduct spot-checks of the businesses who supply us, in order to investigate any complaints.
We require the businesses we work with to address modern slavery concerns in their policies.
Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of Management.
As part of monitoring the performance of Staffing 360 Solutions Limited we track the following general key performance indicators:
The level of training and awareness amongst our staff
The speed and diligence with which we investigate related complaints
Based on the potential risks we have identified, we have also established the following key performance indicators, which are regularly assessed by our senior leadership team:
The percentage of suppliers who provide their own modern slavery statements
The percentage of workers supplied from our preferred supplier list
The level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff
We carefully consider our indicators in order to ensure that we do not put undue pressure on our suppliers that might increase the potential for risk.
All of our staff receive training and support that is appropriate to their role. In particular:
All of our staff receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern slavery and human trafficking so that they can bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
As part of this, our staff are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they have with the Operations Director, Legal, and Compliance (UK) or our Global Chief Operating Officer.
Training is refreshed annually.
