Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in 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 business.
Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we have in place systems to encourage the reporting of concerns and the protection of whistle blowers.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, we provide training to relevant members of staff. All Directors have been briefed on the subject.
Our Effectiveness in Combating Slavery and Human Trafficking
We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
- Completion of House Audits by General Managers and Group Managers.
- Use of labour monitoring and payroll systems.
