At Cordant Services it is our ethical mission and focus to become the most responsible provider of temporary labour services. We recognise that we have an obligation to prevent modern slavery and have implemented effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in our supply chains.
We adopt a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships.
Modern slavery takes various forms, such as servitude, forced and bonded labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person's liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights.
Our candidates, colleagues and clients are at the heart of everything we do, and we take their welfare very seriously. We support and educate our people to ensure they understand and can recognise any signs of exploitation.
In a competing market with a supply and demand imbalance, it is now more crucial than ever to promote a positive candidate experience and position our business as the employer and partner of choice.
With 36 million modern slavery victims worldwide, 8,300 cases of modern slavery in the UK in 2014, and reports that this is on the increase, Cordant recognises the need to raise awareness and take proactive action to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking.
