Our Risk Assessment
Due to the wide range of industry sectors we supply with flexible labour solutions, we ensure that relevant due diligence is undertaken both internally and throughout our supply chain. In business areas we have identified as having the potential for an increased risk of modern slavery and human trafficking issues we endeavour to mitigate those risks by ensuring that the knowledge and experience of our staff is supported by thorough
- Review of key data indicators such as multiple workers providing the same bank details; home address; telephone number or email address.
- Regular internal audits of operational activities.
- Working in partnership with client organisations.
Our Supply Chain
Our supply chains include, but are not limited to, sourcing candidates for clients. This may involve the introduction by external agencies to WeDoData of candidates for onward supply to our clients. We expect our suppliers and potential suppliers to aim for high ethical standards and to operate in an ethical, legally-compliant and professional manner by adhering to our Supplier Code of Conduct. We also expect our suppliers to promote similar standards in their own supply chain.
Future Steps and Review
WeDoData believes in seeking continuous improvement opportunities for raising standards in all areas of our business. During 2022 we are committed to:
- Reviewing how we can improve the knowledge and awareness of our staff.
- The processes we have in place for mitigating risk.
- Communication with workers relating to awareness of modern slavery and human trafficking.
