Our Polices and Procedures

Businesses need policies and procedures to meet the standards of an effective compliance program. Our policies and procedures are totally transparent and available on this page.  They guide both PRL, its employees, suppliers and agents on how PRL expects business to be done and how everyone should be treated.

The most important reason to have policies and procedures is that they help to build a stronger corporate culture. PRL wants everyone to understand our core ethical values and priorities behind our policies and procedures in return, we hope it builds a more unified, trusting business culture.

Modern Slavery Statement

Risk assessment and due diligence
The risk of slavery and human trafficking within Procurement Resource Limited (PRL) organisation is substantially diminished by the implementation of the above-mentioned policies and the procedures that PRL has in place across its operations.

PRL seeks to identify and minimise the risk of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain by endeavouring to select suppliers who adopt high ethical standards which are consistent with PRL’s corporate beliefs and values and seeks to build long-standing relationships with these suppliers. These standards include respecting the rights of the individuals who are employed by them. As such, PRL expects its suppliers (and their subcontractors) to operate their businesses and conduct employee relations in an ethical manner and meet the requirements stipulated by both international and regional laws and industry standards. The majority of PRL’s products are sourced from leading manufacturers within Europe who adopt high standards which are consistent with PRL.

PRL expects its suppliers to have in place policies that enable PRL to be reasonably assured that they meet the standards expected of them. If suppliers fail to meet these expected standards, PRL may suspend its relationship with that supplier until the issue is resolved.

Training and Effectiveness
PRL has briefed its purchasing team on the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking and agency worker providers have been reviewed in order to ensure that they are reputable and will comply with the Modern Slavery Act.

The Group carries out an employee survey every year to obtain feedback for management and to identify areas to focus upon to increase employee engagement still further. The group also regularly monitors training costs per employee to assess the efficiency of its employees through training in order to ensure the quality of its overall service delivery.

In addition to the Whistleblowing Policy, PRL is in the process of assessing service providers for the introduction of a whistleblowing hotline so that unethical behaviour can be reported even more effectively. Should any concerns be held in relation to unethical behaviour, they can be raised in confidence via this hotline and will be subject to immediate investigation. We do not have any key performance indicators in place in relation to compliance with this policy; however, any breaches of this policy should be reported to PRL.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is subject to an annual review

PRL does not condone and will not participate in any form of human exploitation, including child or forced labour, slavery and people trafficking. PRL is aware of the provisions of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and this policy sets out the steps that PRL and its subsidiaries have taken to try and remove the risk that slavery and human trafficking is taking place in any of its supply chains or as part of the PRL Group’s business.
