Best Practice AND Modern Slavery - Chillingworth Training Institute

BEST PRACTICE

Best Practice in Systems
Best Practice in Service
Best Practice in Management

That’s why we undertook accreditation to best back up these claims.  In 2021, we achieved our certification to the internationally renowned ISO 27001 information security management system. Put simply, we have been signed off by an independent authority to a high standard of data protection to assure the integrity of our members, partners, and customers data when they do business with us.

As is painfully obvious these days, informational security is something that should be taken more seriously, so we’re excited to have been signed off by Best Practice Certification – who did a great job motivating and guiding us – as we tweaked our systems and processes to be more protective of members, partners, and customers data.

There is no doubt that personal data is the most sought-after commodity in today’s consumer market.  This level of protection ensures we stay ahead of the curve and protect what is most important to everyone when dealing in a retail business.

The basic goal of ISO 27001 is to protect three aspects of information:

Confidentiality…Integrity….and Availability

As part of reviewing our business for Best Practise, Choices Flooring also undertook the social responsibility of ensuring we recognise the importance of protecting basic human rights.

Our Modern Slavery Policy enforces our commitment to protecting the rights of all people (including its employees, the communities in which the company operates, those who may be impacted by its activities, and those within its supply chains) by opposing all forms of slavery and forced labour in its operations and the operations of its suppliers.

At Choices Flooring we recognise that modern slavery can occur in many forms and are committed to operating responsibly and establishing and adhering to the highest ethical standards by not tolerating any forms of slavery or human trafficking in our business operations and supply chains.

As a company we support the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and place a high priority on supporting the goal of decent work and economic growth while working towards the eradication of modern slavery, and we require our consultants, agents, contractors and suppliers to support the company in the achievement of the aims and objectives of this policy.

We are fully committed to ensuring that robust frameworks and processes are in place to minimise the risk of the many forms of modern slavery, including servitude, human trafficking, forced labour, (including forced marriages), debt bondage, child labour, and deceptive recruiting for labour or services.

As a result, our Senior Management is to provide oversight and work collaboratively with suppliers and partners to ensure that the expectations and standards of the company are understood and that potential exposure to human rights risks is minimised.

Consultants, agents, contractors and suppliers are expected to support Choices Flooring in the achievement of the aims and objectives of our Modern Slavery policy.
