Organisational structure & supply chain

SGI are an international recruitment talent partner delivering technology talent for future focused organisations on a contract basis and/or for permanent employment. The company works with both local and international clients and contractors.

SGI’s supply chains include (the list is not exhaustive) sourcing candidates for clients, which may involve the introduction of candidates to third party companies, and subsequent supply to their customers.

SGI Policies in relation to Slavery and Human Trafficking

As part of the recruitment sector, SGI recognises the responsibility to take a robust approach to slavery and human trafficking, including preventing the same in our corporate activities, and ensuring that SGI’s supply chain is free from slavery and human trafficking.

SGI has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.

Relevant SGI’s policies are listed below which and are reviewed on a regular basis: 

  • HR Procedures – SGI does not tolerate any threat of physical or sexual violence, harassment or intimidation against our employees. Relevant HR policies are clearly defined and communicated to all employees at the onboarding stage, and then via training sessions. The policies are made easily accessible and available to all employees in SGI’s internal database, as well as through the employee handbook;
  • Whistleblowing Policy – at SGI, we believe it is important that any fraud, misconduct or wrongdoing by anyone working with us is reported and dealt with appropriately. We, therefore, encourage all individuals to raise any concerns that they may have about the conduct of others in the business or the way in which the company is run. This policy applies to all employees and anyone working with us;
  • Health and Safety Policy – The Company regards the management of health and safety as an integral part of its business and as a management priority. It is our policy that all activities and work will be carried out in a safe manner and we will ensure the health, safety and welfare of our employees and others who may be affected by our activities. Our target is for zero accidents and zero work-related ill health to be achieved by applying current best practice in health and safety management. Compliance with current health and safety legislation is, therefore regarded as the absolute minimum standard acceptable;
  • Dignity at Work Policy – We will not tolerate bullying and harassment of any kind and will take any allegation very seriously. All allegations of bullying and harassment will be investigated and, if appropriate, disciplinary action will be taken, up to and including dismissal. In some cases, employees could be personally liable to pay compensation in legal claims and may amount to a criminal offence. We will also not tolerate the victimisation of a person for making allegations of bullying or harassment in good faith or supporting someone to make such a complaint. Victimisation is a disciplinary offence.

Due Diligence Processes

We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and regularly review our existing suppliers. The Company's due diligence and reviews include:

  • mapping the supply chain broadly to assess particular product or geographical risks of modern slavery and human trafficking;
  • evaluating the modern slavery and human trafficking risks of each new supplier.

Risk assessment and management, key performance indicators to measure effectiveness of steps being taken

SGI expects high ethical standards from our suppliers and potential suppliers and encourages them to operate in an ethical, legally compliant and professional manner, also when engaging their own suppliers. SGI’s suppliers are expected to have relevant ethical, environmental and social policies.

In order to ensure that our suppliers comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015, we include a question on modern slavery and trafficking in the UK Umbrella - Onboarding Questionnaire which is reviewed annually.

On top of that, SGI conducts strict compliance checks for all candidates we supply to the clients, including identity, right to work and employment history checks, any additional checks may be carried out from time to time, as required by the Client.

As a business we are dedicated to support human rights and sustainability through regular reviews of our internal policies and processes.


Training on Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking, and on the risk our business faces from modern slavery in its supply chains is provided as necessary.
