Arrows Group Global has a zero-tolerance policy to any form of modern slavery, which encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and control in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within our business or our supply chain. We place the same high expectations on all our contractors, suppliers and other business partners.
This statement is written in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps Arrows Group Global has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.
Structure and supply chains
Arrows Group is a global firm with the Staffing industry. The nature of our business requires that we work in conjunction with a range of suppliers and our supply chains include, but are not limited to, sourcing candidates for clients. This may involve the introduction by external agencies to Arrows Group 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. We also expect our suppliers to promote similar standards in their own supply chain.
The following policies exist within Arrows Group to ensure we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner:
- Recruitment policy. We have a robust recruitment policy, which includes conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees, to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
- Whistleblowing policy. We operate a whistleblowing policy, so all employees know they can raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.
- Code of business conduct. We have a code of conduct which explains the way we behave as an organisation and how we expect our employees and suppliers to act.
Due diligence process for slavery and human trafficking
Arrows Group ensure strict compliance checks are carried for all candidates it supplies. We verify the identity of each worker and their right to work before supply commences.
As part of our commitment to identify and eradicate slavery and human trafficking, we have in place a process to undertake due diligence on our supply chain network to ensure compliance with legislative obligations and will continue and evolve this process in future years.
All employees at Arrows Group are expected to act in accordance with local guidelines and regulations, to comply with all laws and to act with integrity and honesty. We ensure all employees are aware of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains, and training will be given where needed. We have also ensured our colleagues have access to any additional information or support they may require.
This statement is made pursuant to Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Arrows Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the current financial year.
