Voluntary slavery and human trafficking statement
Modern Slavery Act 2015: Test Partnership's voluntary slavery and human trafficking statement
We oppose slavery and human trafficking in all its forms. This statement sets out the steps we have taken in 2023 to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our business or in our supply chains.
We are a privately owned business providing online candidate assessments. Our annual turnover is under £36 million. Although we are not required to make a modern slavery statement under section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we are making this voluntary statement to show our commitment to ethical trading principles and to set out the steps we are taking to identify risks and tackle modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains.
Our supply chains mainly consist of the engagement of personnel and the purchasing of goods and services to support the delivery of our services and the running of our business, such as IT and software, maintenance and facilities, and equipment and materials. The majority of our suppliers are UK businesses.
Our commitment to ethical business
Our Anti-slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Our responsible business policies include:
- Anti-slavery Policy
- Corporate Responsibility Policy
- Anti-bribery and Corruption Policy
- Health and Safety Policy
- Anti-facilitation of tax evasion policy
- Privacy notices
Due diligence and risk assessment
To help identify and monitor the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chain we vet suppliers and sub-contractors to ensure that they are committed to ethical trading practices. We include anti-slavery and human tracking provisions in all our contracts with suppliers.
Effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
We use the following key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been at ensuring that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains:
- The percentage of suppliers and sub-contractors vetted for ethical labour practices.
- The number of inspections of direct suppliers and sub-contractors in our supply chains in the past year.
- The number of reported breaches in the past year.
- Percentage of staff receiving training on identifying and addressing the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we provide training to our staff.
This voluntary slavery and human trafficking statement is made in connection with section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, for the financial year ending 30 April 2024. It was approved by the director on 14 July 2023.
