Time for Companies to Wake Up to the Realities of Human Slavery

2017-01-11 @ 9:30 am - 10:30 am CST

Increasing globalisation is making supply chains incredibly complex in a world of chaos and risk. This creates a major challenge for companies seeking to address human rights and prevent forced labour and human trafficking in their supply chain, as required by the Modern Slavery Act 2015.

According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO), almost 21 million people are currently victims of forced labour. This unethical, exploitive behaviour is a major issue in the global supply chain, where the complex use of third-party contractors and vendors by companies with a multi-national reach has made it increasingly difficult to expose and combat. It’s an issue that is also a growing concern for governments, organisations and consumers around the world.

Join us for an one-hour webinar moderated by SAI Global’s Colin Campbell to explain the challenges organisations face when it comes to modern slavery and how companies can create, categorise, and manage the complete life cycle of policies and procedures through the use of technology. Colin will be accompanied by two of the most knowledgeable subject matter experts in the industry.

The agenda will cover: 

  • What is Modern Slavery and an overview
  • New statutory/regulations requirements and how organisations should be managing the legal and reputational risk that rise from slavery and human trafficking
  • Due diligence across the supply chain
  • Technology to manage, document, facilitate and detect processes both internally and in 3rd party supply chains
  • How to create a portal to communicate polices to slavery and other ethical practices across 3rd party relationships
  • Case studies both in the US and the UK
