Modern Slavery

Introduction

At Jongor Ltd we are fully committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our operation and supply chain. This statement sets out the actions that we have taken to understand potential modern slavery risks related to our business, and to implement steps to prevent slavery and human trafficking during the financial year 1st January - 31st December 2021.

 

Our business and supply chains

Jongor Ltd is a specialist in the rental of catering equipment, furniture and temporary kitchen solutions. We operate almost exclusively within the UK. Our Head Office is based in Bristol and we have a warehouse operation in Hayes, London. We work nationwide, at large scale events sites.  On rare occasions and at the request of our UK clients, we operate at events sites outside of the UK.

 

Risk Assessment

Jongor Ltd considers its position as low risk. The majority of our revenues are earned by our business through providing hire catering equipment and this activity is carried out by employees of the Company and therefore under out direct control.

The products we hire are sourced, either directly from manufacturer in the UK and Europe or through a third party distributor. Starting this year, we will audit our major manufacturing suppliers to ensure we fully understand their commitment to preventing modern slavery and it is our intention to continue and broaden this process to more suppliers in future years.

The risks of modern slavery and human trafficking may not always be obvious and it is important and ongoing risk to our business. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all of our business relationships, and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery an human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business or supply chains.

 

Policy and Due Diligence

Jongor Ltd adopt many procedures that assist in the prevention of modern slavery, these are documented in our Employee Handbook and the key policies are highlighted below: 

Public Interest Disclosure (Whistleblowing): Jongor Ltd subscribe to the charity Hospitality Action and as part of the services provided there is a confidential whistleblowing service giving employees the opportunity to report any work related concerns including relating to Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking,  to an independent third party

Recruitment: Recruiting new employees includes identity, right to work and residency status checks to ensure potential employees are identified effectively and appropriately using official forms of identification. These checks form part of our interview processes and enables Jongor Ltd to offer employment to individuals for full-time, part-time, temporary and fixed term positions.

Our business is seasonal and we are typically very busy between the months of May to September. In order to meet this demand we employ temporary workers. We use reputable employment agencies to source this labour and always verify the practices of any new agency it is using before accepting workers from that agency.  

This year, as part of our commitment and due diligence to ensuring modern slavery does not exist within our Company, Jongor Ltd will:

  • Update its current Employee Handbook to have a dedicated ‘Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking’ Section;
  • Continue to adapt and improve our existing policies and practices as necessary to address modern slavery issues;
  • Audit key manufacturing suppliers to understand their commitments and practices towards Modern Slavery

Performance Indicators:

There are no other KPIs identified to be monitored during 2021.
