Anti-slavery policy

Organisational structure

Lee Hecht Harrison Penna is a wholly owned subsidiary of Adecco, SA a publicly held Fortune Global 500 firm.

Our business

Lee Hecht Harrison Penna is the world’s leading talent development and transition company. We help businesses simplify the transformation of their talent and workforces to accelerate results and reduce risk. And we help individuals build their careers within their companies, or in transition to new opportunities.

Our policy

We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery 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 our supply chains.

Supplier adherence to our values

We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values. As a servicing business we have a varied supply chain; the core elements of this are associate/contract workers, offices and related supplies and information technology within which the risk of non-compliance with our anti-slavery policy is low.

We identify that the risk of slavery is greatest in our suppliers of general consumables that the business relies upon. Where possible we build long standing relationships with UK-based suppliers or the UK branch of well-established international firms.

Supplier relationships are sourced and managed by managers within the business. The CEO has overall responsibility for compliance to our policy and any indication of non-compliance will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis and we will then tailor remedial action appropriately. We will cease trade with those who do not fully comply with this policy.


To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, all Directors have been briefed on the subject.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and is reviewed by the Board of Directors annually
