Modern Slavery

People are an integral part of our service and long-term success. Here’s how we make them feel valued and rewarded:

Rewarding our people

We are committed to ensuring there is no place for modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain. And our Anti-Slavery Policy reflects this.

As a retail specialist, our supply chain includes receiving goods direct from manufacturers, customers and their contractors. We also have contracts with customers and suppliers, including temporary work agencies who supply labour.

We work exclusively with suppliers who take modern slavery seriously. We will not work with any organisation that cannot demonstrate the same commitment. And wherever possible, we build long-standing relationships with our customers and suppliers, and underline the importance of our Modern Slavery Policy throughout.

We also raise awareness of slavery internally, to actively encourage our employees to report any suspicious activity involving temporary or part-time staff to the HR Director.

In addition, we undertake rigorous checks to confirm the identity of each worker and verify that worker’s right to work in the United Kingdom. Clipper audits all of its temporary work agencies against legislative compliance, including compliance with the Modern Slavery Act. In return, we comply with audits conducted by our customers.

And for added vigilance, we regularly review and revise our internal policies.
