Every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, a crime that exploits women, children and men for numerous purposes including forced labour and sex.
In 2020, Staffline assisted with 57 investigations into Modern Slavery and rescued 19 potential victims through those cases.
Since 2003, the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) has collected information on circa. 225,000 victims of trafficking detected worldwide. Globally, countries are detecting and reporting more victims and are convicting more traffickers. This can be the result of increased capacity to identify victims and/or an increased number of trafficked victims.
The World Day Against Trafficking in Persons on Friday, 30th July 2021 offers a platform for businesses across the world to unite and increase their efforts in spotting signs of Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking within their supply chains.
This year’s focus is on first responders. For Staffline, this is our operational teams and our compliance investigations team. During the pandemic, the importance on our operational teams has been evident. We are proud to say the values and training implemented is evident in the issues that operations bring to compliance. These range from concerns about workers being introduced by dubious characters, overcrowding in houses of multiple occupancy to exploitation and modern slavery concerns.
So, what can you do within your business to support your workers? Our Compliance Team are always happy to talk about ways in which we can help other businesses spot early signs of Modern Slavery, and best courses of action.
