Modern Slavery Policy

  1. Jackson Hogg Ltd. is committed to eliminating modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  2. Jackson Hogg Ltd. is committed to ensuring that its staff and any workers it supplies (directly or indirectly) are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and similar human rights abuses.
  3. Jackson Hogg Ltd. provides appropriate training and awareness information for all of its staff. In particular:
    • Our leadership team receive detailed training in identifying and resolving concerns around modern slavery and human trafficking.
    • Our HR personnel and leadership team involved in our procurement and supply chains undertake training courses that include guidance around modern
      slavery and human trafficking, as well as other wider human rights issues.
    • All of our staff receive awareness-raising information around issues involving modern slavery and human trafficking, so that they can bring any concerns they have to the attention of management.
  4. Any staff, workers or other parties are strongly encouraged to report any concerns or suspicions that they might have to Anthony Broadhead, Chief Operating Officer or Aoife Owens, Head of People.
  5. Reports surrounding these issues are taken extremely seriously by our board of directors who are committed to ensuring that all investigations shall be prompt and effective. If our investigations reveal any issues, we are committed to taking appropriate action, including but not limited to:
    • Working with the appropriate organisations to improve standards,
    • Removing that organisation from our preferred supplier list,
    • Passing details to appropriate law enforcement bodies.
  6. We regularly monitor our risks in this area through the use of relevant key performance indicators, including:
    • The percentage of suppliers who provide their own modern slavery statements,
    • The percentage of workers and/or candidates supplied from audited businesses / our preferred supplier list,
    • The effectiveness of enforcement against suppliers who breach policies,
    • 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.
  7. As part of our efforts in this area, we publish a modern slavery statement on an annual basis.
  8. We would also recommend reading this in conjunction with our other policies, including our:
    • Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy, and
    • Whistle-blowing policy.

This policy was adopted on June 2020 after being agreed by our board of directors. It is reviewed annually.
