HOW TO BE #SLAVEFREE
Australia has introduced a new Modern Slavery Act (MSA) requiring large businesses to submit an annual Modern Slavery Statement and train their staff on the issue of modern day slavery.
While small to medium business enterprises (SMEs) are not yet required to submit a statement or train their staff, there are enormous benefits to opting in and being on the public register of compliant businesses with new sales opportunities for those that have.
The Freedom Hub is an Australian anti-slavery organisation, experienced in running a successful ethical business with slave-free supply chains. We use our profit to fight slavery within Australia and to help victims recover. This experience positions the Freedom Hub to be the ideal organisation to provide compliance training for all business enterprises, large and small.
Our MSA Workshops ensure you have the practical ‘how to’ on slave-free procurement. We will equip you with a clear understanding of compliance with the law, and help you to write your MSA statement. We will show you how to leverage these new market opportunities, how to be a purpose-driven business, how to increase sales through ethical values and how to be a leader within your industry.
Once trained, you are eligible to join the Freedom Hub Ethical Business Network with great benefits.
