- Our Processes for Managing Risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes with our suppliers 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 require the businesses we work with to abide by our code of supplier conduct.
- We collaborate with our suppliers in order to improve standards and transparency across our supply chain.
- Only senior members of staff who have undergone appropriate training for assessing modern slavery risks in the supply chain are authorised to sign contracts and establish commercial relationships in any area where we have identified the potential for risk.
- We ensure that all of our suppliers are members of appropriate industry bodies and working groups.
Our staff are encouraged to bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
- Our Performance
As part of monitoring the performance of Intec Select Limited, we track the following general key performance indicators:
- The percentage of suppliers who provide their own modern slavery statements;
- The percentage of workers and/or candidates supplied from our preferred supplier list or other audited companies;
- The amount of time spent on audits, re-audits, spot checks, and related due diligence, and;
- The level of modern slavery training and awareness amongst our staff.
We benchmark our indicators against industry best-practice, in order to ensure that we do not put undue pressure on our suppliers that might increase the potential for risk.
- Our Training
All of our staff receive training and support that is appropriate to their role. In particular, our leadership team and/or senior supply chain managers receive detailed training in identifying and resolving concerns around modern slavery and human trafficking.
As part of this, our staff are encouraged to discuss any concerns that they have.
Training is refreshed annually in line with policy updates.
