2.1 Policy development and review

RecruitAbility’s policies are established by our directors based on advice from HR professionals, industry best practice and legal advice, and in consultation with the REC. 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 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

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 on suppliersWe ensure that our suppliers are members of appropriate industry bodies
  • Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.

5. Our Training

All our staff receive training and support around modern slavery that is appropriate to their role. As part of this, our staff are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they have. Training is refreshed regularly.
