MODERN SLAVERY AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING STATEMENT
INTRODUCTION FROM THE CHAIRMAN
We are committed to continually improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
Modern slavery is the illegal exploitation of people for personal or commercial gain, often in horrendous conditions which the victim cannot escape. Businesses have a key part to play in the effort to tackle this crime and protect vulnerable workers from exploitation and is an area we take extremely seriously, being aware of the possibility of our services being abused by traffickers.
We implement stringent procedures in relation to the hiring of employees and temporary staff, as well as where we employ the services of third party organisations, in order to alert us of any signs of modern slavery.
Below we set out the steps we take to ensure there is no slavery or human trafficking occurring within our organisation or its supply chains.
We are a leading provider of bespoke outsourced services to over 200 hotels across the UK, Singapore and South Africa. Employing over 4,500 people, Omni provides Housekeeping, Recruitment, Property and Software Services to some of the world’s most prestigious global hotel brands.
Our ultimate parent company is Omni Facilities Management Limited (“Omni FM”). Omni FM has its head office in the UK.
The Group has a global annual turnover of £51,129,211.00 to end of June 2018.
The Group consists of Omni Recruitment Services Limited, GIG App Limited, Omni Hotels LLP, Crossed Hands Limited, Omni Software Limited, Omni China UK Limited, Omni South Africa Limited.
