Boyden UK & Ireland is committed to the highest standards of professionalism, ethical behaviour and integrity in all that we do. As part of these standards, we are committed to opposing modern slavery in all forms. We do not tolerate it within our business and will not work with suppliers who do not hold the same high standard.

Boyden is a global executive recruitment business specialising in permanent and interim positions operating through a number of separately constituted and regulated legal entities which provide services in accordance with the relevant laws of the jurisdictions in which they respectively operate. Further information about the Boyden global business, including information on the countries in which we operate, can be found on our website.
Our business mainly employs professionally qualified and skilled people.
Our supply chain consists of goods and services to assist us in the work we undertake. Our relationships with subcontractors, suppliers and their employees, business partners, agents and others working on their behalf (collectively "Third Parties") principally include professional services and consultancy, property, facilities management, human resources, information technology and marketing.
We train all staff in matters relating to modern slavery and encourage them to report any abuses they come across either in our business or that of our suppliers and/or clients.
Our policies in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
Our policy framework includes a range of People policies that outline our commitment to modern slavery and human trafficking risks in our business. Relevant policies include:
These policies have been made available to all our Boyden UK & Ireland employees.
We comply with all applicable employment laws relating to employee terms and conditions, including pay, and have been accredited as a UK Living Wage Employer by the Living Wage Foundation.
Boyden UK & Ireland is committed to addressing the health and well-being of our people. We provide a full Employee Assistance Programme.
Because we provide executive recruitment and leadership advisory services at the highest level of all types of organisations, we have a limited supply chain. We believe our risk for violations of the Modern Slavery Act is low although we keep this under review and particularly in our limited supply chain.
We do not believe that further compliance actions are necessary currently to combat slavery and human trafficking. As compliance laws and regulations continuously evolve, thoughtful assessments of our compliance effectiveness is periodically undertaken.
