Anti-Slavery Policy

Anti-Slavery Policy

Anglo Office Group is committed to placing social responsibility at the heart of our business ethics and using the guidance outlined within the International (Social Responsibility) Standard ISO 26000 to help us to do this effectively.

Our socially responsible business ethics help guide our policies and practices and include accountability, transparency, ethical behaviour and respect for human rights. We believe that it is important to develop lasting internal and external relationships with our customers and within our own business, amongst our staff, contractors and suppliers. Good professional relationships are key to how we operate and essential to us delivering successful solutions.

At Anglo Office Group we do not tolerate slavery or human trafficking within our company, supply chain or customers. Anglo is in a position to take responsibility for managing all of a customer’s procurement and supply chain. We therefore audit all of our tier one suppliers to ensure risk of modern slavery and human trafficking is minimised as part of our quality control procedures and client-driven service.


Internally

Internally we understand that fostering a healthy and safe working environment brings out the best in people and allows them to develop and flourish. We also understand that we have a duty to ensure everyone is treated fairly and are aware of what is and isn’t acceptable behaviour. Everyone within Anglo Office Group is aware that anything they believe to be unacceptable has to be reported immediately to a member of the senior management team. Additionally, a training programme is underway to ensure all personnel are aware of the risks of modern slavery, the signs to look out and what to do if they are concerned.

The senior management team meet regularly on a bi-monthly basis where any issues raised on modern slavery and human trafficking are discussed and actions agreed.

We are a London Living Wage Employer.

Externally

Anglo Office Group is committed to ensure that its suppliers, sub-contractors and service providers shall comply all applicable laws, statutes, regulations and codes from time to time in force including but not limited to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

Anglo Office Group represents and warrants that neither the Company nor any of its officers, employees or other persons associated with it:

  1. has been convicted of any offence involving slavery and human trafficking; and
  2. having made reasonable enquiries, to the best of its knowledge, has been or is the subject of any investigation, inquiry or enforcement proceedings by any governmental, administrative or regulatory body regarding any offence or alleged offence or in connection with slavery and human trafficking.

Anglo Office Group operates a SUPPEX (Supplier Excellence) programme, which assures customers of the highest level of service. This programme includes a robust due diligence process, whereby all suppliers and subcontractors are vetted to ensure any risk of exposure to slavery or human trafficking is identified and effectively mitigated.

Supplier and subcontractor performance is monitored on an ongoing basis and formally reviewed at least once a year to ensure controls in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking continue to be effective and any opportunities for improvement, through the sharing of best practice, are implemented.

Additionally, it is part of the SUPEX that modern slavery and human trafficking and our intolerance to it are discussed during the review process.


External Assurance

In 2017 Anglo Office Group achieved UKAS accredited certification to ISO 9001:2015 in Quality Management and ISO 14001 :2015 in Environmental Management. The scope of our certification covers wider CSR issues such as modern slavery, offering customers and other stakeholders the assurance that effective management controls are in place to both identify and mitigate any associated risk.


Continual Improvement

We are proud of our approach and commitment to being a conscious, forward thinking business. To ensure we continue to focus on the issues that matter we review our risks, opportunities, objectives and supporting policies and plans at least once a year.
