A message from our Managing Director
THOMAS Recruitment Limited is committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business dealings. As part of this commitment, we continue to develop and implement robust systems and controls to mitigate the risk of modern slavery anywhere within our business operations or supply chain.
We recognise that to fully deliver on this commitment, we must continue to strive for improvement in all our processes. In 2022/23 we continued to face an unprecedented time in relation to the Covid-19 global pandemic and our recovery from it; it was therefore essential that we continued to consider the impact the pandemic had on Modern Slavery and our response to this through our business, employees and supply chain.
We have utilised our continued relationship with the GLAA, Stronger Together and Sedex to evaluate new impacts and relevant actions Stronger Together provides knowledge and resources to give us the tools we need to identify the risk of modern slavery and then put in place appropriate control measures. We look forward to continuing our work with Stronger Together and to further develop our existing internal processes as a result.
All those with whom we do business are expected to follow the highest ethical principles. Here at THOMAS, we expect all our business partners, representatives, and suppliers to have robust processes in place to eliminate the risk of modern slavery occurring in their organisations. This has resulted in strengthened internal due diligence and other processes.
Targeting modern slavery within our business operations isn’t enough. We are also committed to addressing the risk of modern slavery within our supply chain. THOMAS is stringent regarding its selection of suppliers and fully expects chosen partners to work with us openly to identify and combat modern slavery.
