Exchequer Solutions were amongst one of the first businesses to send their employees on our Modern Slavery Awareness Course.
Based in Chester, Exchequer Solutions is a professional services company providing services to the UK’s recruitment sector and to contractors in a range of industries. Recently listed on the Manchester Fastest 50 list for the third year in a row, they are a growing business and their success has been founded on a commitment to high levels of customer service, professionalism and compliance.
As an organisation that deals with the employment and payroll for thousands of workers and contractors, they realised that they needed to raise awareness of the issues surrounding modern slavery and human trafficking and to ensure they had taken the necessary steps to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Here’s what Managing Director Mike Lowndes had to say about his management team attending the course:
“The managers of Exchequer Solutions attended a modern slavery course recently provided by Peel Solutions. As a company which is at the forefront of compliance, we took this step to enhance our knowledge and to comply with the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
The course was interesting, informative and excellently delivered by the trainer Chris Davies. For any companies who are interested in the course as part of their commitment to compliance, I would strongly recommend the Peel Solutions offering.”
Any organisations with a turnover of £36 million or more which are either incorporated in the UK or carry on a business in the UK must produce an annual statement reporting on the steps that they have taken to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking are not taking place within their business or anywhere within their supply chains.
Training relevant staff can be a crucial step in complying with the legislation but at Peel Solutions we recommend the training for businesses of all sizes. Improving awareness can help to ensure that any potential problems in this area are spotted quickly and acted upon appropriately.
If you are interested in training for your staff then get in touch, we offer a range of different courses in this area from basic awareness through to training for those involved in investigations in this field.
