POLICY, COMPIANCE & DUE DILIGENCE WITHIN OUR BUSINESS
Cook Serve Enjoy ensures we comply with all applicable employment laws and commit to ensuring fairness in the hiring and advancement of all colleagues without discrimination. We require all staff to comply with the company’s code of conduct and ethics within all business dealings.
As an organisation we are committed to being best in class by operating ethically and responsibly and with a culture of giving back to society, maintaining our strong family values and sense of making a difference.
We are transparent and regularly review our recruitment processes, ensuring full and stringent verification for all labour providers used.
A culture of openness and accountability is essential with a robust and confidential whistle-blowing policy firmly in place. Our zero-tolerance approach extends to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity.
There is annual circulation to all employees of the company code of conduct, code of ethics, whistle-blowing policy and insider trading policy to further reinforce our stance.
All new employees are made aware of our ethical and compliance standards. As part of this process they are made aware of the indicators that would signal human trafficking and forced labour and how to report and deal with such an instance.
Any recruiters who we engage with for the supply of temporary workers must be licensed by the Gangmasters Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) and will work to the same strict standards as per our own operating procedures.
POLICY, COMPIANCE & DUE DILIGENCE WITHIN OUR SUPPLY BASE
We operate a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking and require our suppliers to ensure they do not use forced labour, bonded or involuntary prison labour within their operation.
We have also embarked on a programme to communicate and regulate our policies to existing and new suppliers, as well as our sourcing agents and employees throughout the business where we make it clear from the outset our expectations; insisting on only working with suppliers who share our ethical values. We encourage open transactions and lines of discussions and work through challenges together with suppliers, with a refusal to trade with them should they offer little or no engagement or transparency.
