Within the Quality and Compliance Department at Single Resource we take compliance with legislative and industry standards extremely seriously. We aim to work collaboratively with our supply chains to implement best practice and protect our business, our workers and our clients. With a team of auditors trained to audit against legislative and industry standards, including the GLAA Licencing Standards and the Ethical Trading Initiative, we aim to provide a compliant and responsible recruitment service to both our workers and our client base.
We work alongside the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority to improve industry standards and raise awareness of modern-day slavery, we also have board representation on the Association of Labour Providers. In 2018, we were very proud to be invited to speak at a number of Modern Slavery Events in order to raise awareness of labour exploitation and also became the first labour provider to become a business partner of Bright Future, an initiative set up to support victims of Modern Slavery to integrate back into the working environment.
Our team members have been trained and equipped with the tools to identify potential cases of modern slavery, along with the responsibility of our internal ‘Stop Exploit’ phone line. We pride ourselves in finding this hidden crime and work with the authorities and our clients to prevent and protect vulnerable and exploited workers.
The importance of an integrated Quality and Compliance Department into the operational functions of Single Resource is key to achieving compliance and continuously improving the services we provide. By having our support in monitoring compliance, updating policies and procedures and identifying potential signs of labour exploitation, the operational teams can continue to meet our client’s requirements.
