Gym In Motion Ltd - Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Gym In Motion Ltd "(GIM") recognises that we have a responsibility to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking from existing in both our business and our supply chain.
Whilst we believe that both our business and the industry sector in which we operate are relatively low risk in this regard, our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement is a reflection of this responsibility and it sets out our commitment to developing and implementing business practices which ensure that we do not allow modern slavery and human trafficking to take place.
Organisation structure and supply chain
GIM provides bespoke intellectual fitness and wellbeing solutions to a range of clients requiring specialist support; specifically over 55’s, clients with learning difficulties and clients with physical disabilities. Our services are provided by In Person Live Classes and online via our At Home Live Classes and At Home On Demand Classes. Our classes embrace physical, mental and social activities. All our services are aimed at individuals, carehomes, independent living venues, healthcare providers and local government.
We consider that the principal areas in which the business faces risks related to modern slavery include people working for ourselves and central support functions, our supply chain and outsource providers.
GIM takes reasonable steps to mitigate against the risk of modern slavery or human trafficking occurring in our supply chain or in any part of our business. We have implemented an Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking policy which underpins our commitment to zero tolerance in this regard.
We also have a whistle blowing policy in place, which encourages our employees and other stakeholders to report any wrongdoing in our business including those related to modern slavery or human trafficking. If we receive any reports relating to these matters they will be fully investigated and appropriate actions taken.
Our procedures, due diligence and risk management
GIM has clear employment policies and processes in place, which include formal contracts of employment and checks of legal entitlement to work in the UK. Failure to comply with our policies and procedures can result in disciplinary action against our employees, which can include immediate suspension or termination of their employment.
Self-employed personal trainers who carry out their business on our premises or under our brands enter into formal licence agreements and have their qualifications and insurance cover verified as part of the onboarding process.
Key suppliers and outsource partners
GIM seeks to deal with reputable suppliers and operate competitive tender processes for significant contracts and ensure effective due diligence and risk assessments are undertaken as part of this process. GIM require all of our suppliers to evidence that appropriate anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes are in place. GIM will also ensure that we continue to monitor our suppliers as part of our risk management framework on an ongoing basis. We have a Code of Conduct which we expect all of our suppliers to adhere to, and we have contractual obligations that they will comply with the Modern Slavery Act.
By publishing this statement on our website, we are communicating to all suppliers that we have zero tolerance in regards modern slavery and human trafficking.
Training and continuing commitment
To ensure an understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, all members of our senior management team have been briefed on the subject and our Procurement Director maintains oversight of all procurement and supply management processes.
