Youmanage HR Ltd (Youmanage) is committed to preventing acts of modern slavery and human trafficking from occurring within its business and supply chain, and imposes the same high standards on its suppliers, contractors and other business partners. Youmanage takes its responsibilities seriously and this statement constitutes its compliance pursuant to section 54 (1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the Act).
As part of our commitment to combating Modern Slavery, our Modern Slavery statement and code of conduct sets out our zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery in our organisation and supply chain. We expect all our partners and suppliers to embrace our core principles and match the high standards that we set ourselves. All new supplier sign up to our code of conduct and existing suppliers are reminded of our code of conduct when renewed.
Our due diligence processes and supply chain
We consider the risk of Modern Slavery existing within our business to be low. However, due diligence and monitoring is completed on our supply chain based on our zero-tolerance approach to Modern Slavery in our organisation.
We endeavour to do business with suppliers that adopt the same strict standards that we ourselves adhere to. In turn, we expect our suppliers to operate fairly and ethically, where workers are treated with respect and dignity, and the highest standards of human rights are maintained.
Youmanage has developed a risk based approach to assess the possibility of Modern Slavery within our supply chain. The factors considered for this approach include; the country of origin and the nature of, and location from which, services are provided.
Suppliers are onboarded and managed through a Supplier Information Pack and when responses are received, they are reviewed and the risk assessment of the supplier is updated accordingly. Where we have identified a potential risk, it is investigated and mitigated through activities such as enhanced due diligence. Our Supplier Information Pack is issued to new suppliers and monitored based on renewal.
The contractual terms and conditions that we put in place with our suppliers are being updated to include clauses that forbid the use of slavery and human trafficking.
We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate Modern Slavery within our supply chains. In the rare event where we become aware of a case of Modern Slavery, we will work with the supplier to implement remedial action. We expect our suppliers to engage with us constructively and responsibly, and to demonstrate their willingness to remedy issues in a timely manner. If we find evidence of a failure to comply with our policies we will immediately seek to terminate our relationship with the relevant supplier.
General awareness training is to be provided to those staff members who are involved in managing recruitment and our supply chains.
This statement is made in accordance with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Youmanage’s slavery and human trafficking statement which has been signed off by the Head of Compliance and Managing Director.
