1. Our commitment
We are opposed to slavery and do what we can to combat the exploitation of these practices within our business.
Here at X1 we are committed to constantly improve our practice in the workplace to ensure there is no modern slavery. X1 welcomes the Modern Slavery Act and the actions involved to prevent the exploitation of these practices throughout our organisation. We will not knowingly deal with any business involved in slavery.
2. In our business
It is our view that there is low risk of slavery within our operations and we mitigate any potential risks with controls built into our business operations and the knowledge, skills and behaviours of our staff.
Policies relevant to the slavery act that we enforce are:
- Staff whistleblowing policy
- Safeguarding adults, children and young people policy
- Private use of contractors or consultant’s policy
- Disciplinary policy
- Anti-fraud policy
Each year, we review these and update relevant policies and procedures. This ensures there is no slavery within our business.
3. Training and awareness
We have a robust safeguarding procedure in place where we deliver training to our staff to raise awareness of what slavery may look like in our business. Our residential developments may be used for modern slavery so we encourage staff to raise concerns if suspicions are raised.
We will continue to raise awareness and delivery training to new and current staff and we will reiterate this towards our contractors, if appropriate.
