Policies & Procedures
We have a number of relevant policies and procedures in place to ensure a transparent and ethical approach to conducting our business. These include:
- Recruitment Policy and Onboarding Procedures – This policy ensures comprehensive due diligence on all existing and potential employees. We verify each employee’s right to work to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will. We also carry out basic criminal records checks on all UK permanent staff members.
- Outsourcing Policy – third parties that provide goods and services are subject to risk ranking and due diligence checks, including an examination of any negative media.
- Whistleblowing Policy – this policy ensures that employees can be confident that they will be supported by senior management in reporting any suspicious activity, including any suspicions of modern slavery or human trafficking, without fear of reprisal.
Our supply chain includes predominantly IT and telecommunications providers. Recruitment functions have been moved in-house for greater oversight and control. Geographically, Semble’s suppliers are predominantly based in the UK. None are based in higher-risk jurisdictions, as set out in the Global Slavery Index.
We carry out due diligence checks on all of our employees/contractors. As such Semble is confident that it ensures transparency and efficiency in its business and approach to tackling modern slavery and human trafficking.
