Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Kelly Group has a zero tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery within our operations or supply chain. We seek excellence in every aspect of our business and are committed to the highest standards of professionalism, ethics and integrity and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
As required by the Modern Slavery Act 2015, this statement describes the steps which Kelly Group has taken during the financial, ending 31 December 2016, to ensure that slavery is not taking place in any of our supply chains or in any part of our own business.
Our Supply Chain Relationships
Our key suppliers are the businesses which help us to run our premises, such as our cleaning and security providers, and the businesses which supply us with the technology, products and resources to deliver our services to our clients. We tend to foster long-term relationships with these first-tier suppliers and we avoid making demands of our suppliers that might lead to them violating human rights.
Kelly Group operates a supplier policy and maintains a preferred supplier list. We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to become a preferred supplier. This due diligence includes an online search to ensure that a particular organisation has never been convicted of offenses relating to modern slavery.
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 internal policies reflect 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.
Our internal policies include our No Forced or Bonded Labour Policy where we confirm that we will not tolerate or condone the use of any type of forced or bonded labour within any party of our business or supply chain and will take seriously any allegations that the policy has not been followed or breached. We also operate a Whistleblowing Policy, aimed principally at our employees but also available to others working in our supply chains, which encourages staff to report any wrongdoing which extends to human rights violation like modern slavery and human trafficking. All reports will be fully investigated and appropriate remedial actions taken.
Due Diligence Processes For Slavery And Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative we try to identify risks to workers in our supply chain, by regularly refreshing the due diligence we carry out on our key suppliers before we engage them, and through the ongoing supplier management processes we have in place.
When selecting our suppliers, price is not our only driver. We are committed to buying quality products and services from ethical suppliers and part of measuring this involves assessing the approach a potential supplier takes to its people and the workers in its own supply chain.
We have in place systems to:
We also have a dedicated compliance team, which consists of involvement from the following departments:
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff on how to evaluate suppliers and mitigate risks within supply chains. Our aim is to raise awareness of the issues and increase informed scrutiny.
We understand that modern slavery and human trafficking is not stat ic, and will continue to maintain our approach to mitigating this risk in the year ahead.
In order to assess the effectiveness of the measures taken by Kelly Group we will be reviewing the following key performance indicators:
