Breaking the chain
Corporate compliance, meaningful compliance to be exact, is difficult.
First, as the Act demonstrates, modern slavery is a broad concept. It includes forced or compulsory labour, servitude, slavery, and human trafficking. Given its broad spectrum, different categories of modern slavery, and consequently the Modern Slavery Act 2015, can affect different companies operating in different industries on a global level in a variety of ways.
Second, as cases from all over the world have shown, businesses have a limited awareness and knowledge of the exploitative practices present in their industries, their extent, and how to shield against this threat. Practices of modern slavery are clandestine by nature, they occur under the surface. We intend to make this surface transparent.
How we do it
We think, act and operate both locally and globally. We conduct all of our services either online or in person, with the exception of training, which is conducted most efficiently in-house and in accordance with the good practices of adult pedagogy.
We base our training on cutting-edge research conducted with our partners, such as a variety of research centers at the University of Cambridge and the University of Warwick, and other partners.
We gain an understanding of client's particular needs and business structure in order to target our services to the constitution of the firm. and the levels of support required.
We offer training packages on modern slavery, the Modern Slavery Act 2015, and the international frameworks, tailored to the specific needs of both the industry in which the client operates, and the corporate level to whom the training is delivered.
We provide support to our clients in drafting their reports on their compliance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and their support for the broader international human rights framework by making sure that companies we work with are adequately informed of the key points that need to be included in the statement, and of the measures that ensure the development, improvement, and sustenance of a positive image of corporate social responsibility and reputation.
We provide strategic advice to our clients in ensuring supplier compliance with the developed ethical ethos of the company, supporting their efforts in analysing the supply chain as required, and developing frameworks for activities on tackling modern slavery and human trafficking.
