SLAVERY STATEMENT

SLAVERY STATEMENT

 

INTRODUCTION

Ellomeh Specialist Recruitment Services and its subsidiaries,  belongs to the family of companies founded by LARRY CHU MEH to provide a range of recruitment related services to both individuals and organisations. Ellomeh Human Resource Services is still owned by the family and it remains committed to their values:

We are Fair, Open and Honest;

We Take Ownership; and

We Work Together

These values are directly relevant to the issues associated with eradicating the evil of modern slavery and Ellomeh Human Resource Services is committed to developing and improving its processes to combat slavery and human trafficking.

Structure

Although Ellomeh Human Resource Services provides a very wide range of recruitment related services, Our particular focus is on the provision of what might be best described as ‘traditional’ recruitment services, matching work seekers seeking both temporary and permanent employment with employers looking to fill various roles.

Ellomeh Human Resource Services  registered office is at Buea South West Region Cameroon, it now employs over 60 people in 3 offices across Cameroon, from where it delivers its services to work seekers and employers across the country.

Ellomeh Human Resource Services ultimate parent company is Ellomeh Group Ltd, which has its head office in Buea South  West Region Cameroon; and although Ellomeh Human Resource Services does have sister companies overseas which provide recruitment related services in other jurisdictions, Ellomeh Human Resource Services services are limited to recruitment activity in the  Cameroon

Ellomeh Human Resource Services Business

As a specialist provider of permanent, contract, temporary and outsourced recruitment solutions, Ellomeh Human Resource Services  subdivides its internal business units by specialism, with over 20 such specialisms, each of which is led by a Divisional Director and ultimately answerable to the Managing Director.

For the sake of clarity and avoidance of doubt, the Subsidiaries identified above are also responsible to the board of Ellomeh Human Resource Services and are engaged in the same business in the same jurisdiction, so it is appropriate for this statement to apply to them as well.

Ellomeh Human Resource Services Supply Chains

As an African focused service provider, Our supply chains are limited to those individuals and organisations which provide Ellomeh Human Resource Services  with the goods and services needed to operate its business, such as stationery and IT equipment; and other recruitment agencies who may be engaged as support suppliers to clients who outsource the management of their recruitment needs to Ellomeh Human Resource Services.There is, therefore, very limited scope for slavery and human trafficking to take place in Ellomeh Human Resource Services business or supply chain, particularly as all of the workers engaged by Ellomeh Human Resource Services and its suppliers work in Cameroon and are, therefore, entitled to receive at least the statutory minimum employment rights provided for by law.

Our Policies on Slavery and Human Trafficking

Ellomeh Human Resource Services is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in its supply chains or in any part of its business. Ellomeh Human Resource Services Anti-Slavery Policy reflects this commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in Ellomeh Human Resource Services supply chains.

 

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

Ellomeh Human Resource Services is carrying out an audit of all its suppliers and support suppliers and is in the process of contacting each one to confirm their adherence to Ellomeh Human Resource Services values and ethics.

Moreover, as all of these suppliers provide their services to Ellomeh Human Resource Services in Cameroon they are obliged to ensure that everyone they employ in Cameroon receives at least the appropriate minimum statutory rights and comply with legislation on modern slavery and human trafficking.

Ellomeh Human Resource Services is also introducing a system to identify and mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in its supply chain by addressing the matter directly with suppliers before entering into any new contracts and has made it clear that whistleblowers will be protected in the event that they highlight any concerns.

These processes are implemented and monitored by individuals working in Ellomeh Human Resource Services compliance, legal and human resources departments.

 

Training

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in its supply chains, Ellomeh Human Resource Services is developing a training module on modern slavery and human trafficking; completion of which will be mandatory for all employees.

Completion of this training and any updates that may be required will be monitored and enforced byEllomeh Human Resource Services compliance department.

 

Effectiveness in Combating Slavery and Human Trafficking

As this is Ellomeh Human Resource Services first Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement, the processes it is developing and steps that it is taking will be kept under review with a view to ensuring that the following criteria are met in advance of the publication of the next statement:

Completion of the supplier audit and a report on the steps taken to address any gaps or issues it identifies.

All Ellomeh Human Resource Services employees to have completed training on modern slavery and human trafficking;

All suppliers to have confirmed their adherence to Ellomeh Human Resource Services values and ethics relating to modern slavery and human trafficking;

All new contracts with suppliers should include clauses which address the parties’ obligations in respect of modern slavery and human trafficking; and

That any reports of concerns or risks relating to modern slavery and human trafficking are tracked, reported to senior management and resolved.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Ellomeh Human Resource Services slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending in June 2017.
