Bootstrap has written policies which serve to address the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. These include:
Code of Conduct
Our Code of Conduct is embedded within our organisation and serves to ensure that all members of staff are aware of their responsibilities and commitment to operating ethically, and assist them in making the right choices. Our Code of Conduct includes information on our company values, human rights and safeguarding which align closely to the requirements of Modern Slavery.
Equality and diversity
Our Equality and Diversity policy is in place to ensure that we treat people fairly and with respect from recruitment through to employment. This policy applies to our customers and our staff by fostering a culture which safeguards our customers and staff affording dignity and respect to all.
Our Safeguarding policy sets out the legislative requirements to provide a duty of care, promote positive well-being and provide a clear process for escalating concerns to protect the welfare of individuals. This includes Modern Slavery concerns. We have also introduced a Modern Slavery Reporting Procedure across our UK business. Both the Safeguarding Policy and reporting procedure have been communicated to all UK employees.
Recruitment and selection
Our recruitment process is in place to ensure that the right staff are employed by the business that demonstrate our values, have high ethical standards, are the right people for the right role and fundamentally meet the requirements of being able to work in the UK.
