2 OUR POLICIES
Time Recruitment Solutions Ltd has a modern slavery policy.
Policy development and review
The Company’s policies are established by the directors, based on advice from HR professionals, industry best practice and legal advice, and in consultation with Senior Staff.
We review our policies on a regular basis, or as needed to adapt to changes.
3 OUR PROCESSES FOR MANAGING RISK
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, 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 collaborate with our suppliers in order to improve standards and transparency across our supply chain.
Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
4 OUR PERFORMANCE
As part of monitoring the performance of the Company, we track the following general key performance indicators:
the percentage of workers supplied from audited businesses / our preferred supplier list
the effectiveness of enforcement against suppliers who breach policies
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.
5 OUR TRAINING
All of our staff receive training and support that is appropriate to their role. In particular:
Our staff involved in our procurement and supply chains undertake training courses that include guidance around modern slavery and human trafficking, as well as other wider human rights issues.
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.
Training is refreshed annually.
