September 27, 2022


This statement is made as part of People2.0 (Group) UK Limited’s (“People2.0 UK”) commitment to  eliminating the exploitation of people under the Modern Slavery Act (2015). People2.0 UK is committed  to supporting ethical and compliant practices in the provision of our services. This statement is published  in accordance with section 54 of the Act.  


People2.0 UK is a payroll and compliance company and is the parent company of People2.0 UK, Ireland,  Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Germany and Finland companies. People2.0 UK are part of a global group,  and the ultimate parent company is People2.0 Global, LLC, which is based in the United States of  America.  

People2.0 UK’s office is based in London and within the People2.0 UK group we have two other offices  located in Berlin and Antwerp. We provide global flexible workforce solutions across for recruitment  agencies and clients, and pride ourselves on offering compliant services in line with local and global  legislation. 

We value transparency and compliant employment practices based on honesty and integrity and aim to  provide a quality trustworthy service.  


We work closely with recruitment agency partners, who source contractors for placements with clients.  Our external business supply chain involves engaging with contractors, agency and clients for the supply  of the contractor’s services to clients. Our internal supply chain relates to our office facilities such as IT,  telecoms, refreshments, and cleaning services.  


We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains, or in any part of our business. Our Anti-Slavery Policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and  with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and  controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in out supply chains and  partnerships.  

We value partnerships and suppliers who support these principles and impart our attitude towards  compliance to the organisations we work with. We recognise the importance of this ethos within the  recruitment sector and can demonstrate our commitment to compliance through the following steps.  These include:- 

  • award of sector specific employer accreditations; 
  • award of country specific temporary worker licencing authorisations; 
  • membership of employment organisations; 
  • adherence to specific collective agreements; 
  • adherence to health and safety audits;
  • adherence to financial audits; 
  • assessment of working environments; 
  • adherence to minimum wage regulations; 
  • regular communication and contact with contractors, agencies and clients; 
  • adherence to working time regulations; and 
  • requiring contractual commitments from our partners to modern slavery legislation.


As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we have multiple legal teams based across our  European offices and work closely with local lawyers and accountants in each jurisdiction in which we  operate to ensure that we are engaging employees and contractors compliantly in line with local labour  laws. Our legal teams work closely with the sales and operations departments to ensure compliance  alignment. This enables us to work collaboratively to:- 

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains. 
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains. 
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains. 
  • Protect against illegal working practices.

In relation to our internal suppliers, we engage with recognised telecoms and facilities providers, ethical  local food suppliers, and local cleaning providers with whom we have a long-standing relationship.  


People2.0 UK regularly assesses the risks of non-compliance when engaging with new business deals to ensure it provides the highest standard of service. We work collaboratively from a compliance  perspective with individuals across the following departments in order to ensure all those in our supply  chain and contractors adhere to our values 

  • Legal 
  • Audit and compliance 
  • Finance 
  • Operations 
  • Sales 

People2.0 UK measure the effectiveness of the steps it takes by educating internal staff and external  partners in relation to labour compliance, reviewing internal policies and procedures and monitoring  feedback.  


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply  chains and our business, we will continue to educate our staff.  


People2.0 UK believes in seeking continuous improvement opportunities to raising standards. We will  continuously develop our policies, procedures and training to support our compliance responsibilities.
