Human Rights of Agency Staff & Delivery Drivers

GFG engages additional people via agencies in most operating countries, contracting the agency to supplement the directly employed workforce for picking and packing of customer orders, cleaning, security and parcel delivery. Respect of fundamental human rights at work for people working in or for our operations but not directly employed by us is of no less importance than our own employees or those in our supply chain. We have developed an Agency Due Diligence Framework, which when implemented robustly provides more information about the reality on the ground and ultimately confidence in conditions for agency staff. At its core is a policy which specifies our expectations of agencies and covers non-discrimination, worker representation, non-payment of recruitment costs by staff, non-retention of passports, employment contracts, wages and provision of safe and decent working, living and transport conditions. In addition, the framework provides regions with a structure for conducting due diligence including tools and templates and implementation is monitored by the group. In respect of delivery drivers, fundamentally our expectations are the same and we are formalising an applicable framework during 2021.
