3. Our Processes for Managing Risk

In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we take the following steps to minimise the risk of any problems:

  • We reserve the right to conduct spot-checks of the businesses we supply temporary staff to, in order to investigate any complaints.
  • We collaborate with our suppliers in order to improve standards and transparency across our supply chain.
  • We work closely with the clients we supply to, ensuring temporary staff supplied can report any concerns or issues to the relevant Consultant.
  • We ensure all candidates registered and working have an allocated Consultant to share any concerns or issues.
  • Candidates ID must be verified at time of registration to ensure right to work status.
  • We only pay wages into the candidates bank account or shared bank account.

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 Allstaff, we track the following general key performance indicators:

  • Regular client on-site visits
  • Annual Health & Safety Policy Review
  • Regular communication with our temporary 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 our staff receive information relating to this policy via the Recruitment & Employment Confederation guidelines.

As part of this, our staff are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they have.

  1. Allstaff is committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  2. Allstaff is committed to ensuring that its staff and any workers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  3. Allstaff provides appropriate awareness information for its entire staff.
    In particular:
    • We are made aware, via the Recruitment & Employment Confederation guidelines, of how to identify and resolve concerns around modern slavery and human trafficking.
    • All 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.
  4. Any staff, workers or other parties are strongly encouraged to report any concerns or suspicions that they might have to their manager.
    • Reports surrounding these issues are taken extremely seriously by our board of directors who are committed to ensuring that all investigations shall be prompt and effective. If our investigations reveal any issues, we are committed to taking appropriate action.
  5. We would also recommend reading this in conjunction with our other policies, including our:
    • Anti-bribery & Corruption Policy
    • Equal Opportunities / Diversity Policy

This policy was adopted in 2016 after being agreed by our board of directors.
