About


Take the guesswork out of managing your modern slavery risks.


Our Bridge the Gap tool helps you:
     1. engage key people across your organisation
     2. identify gaps in your systems and processes
     3. create practical action plans to manage risk better.

The tool is simple to use and provides a visual ‘heat map’ of how effectively your business is managing modern slavery risks.

You can choose from 130 practical actions which can be tailored to the needs of your business.

The heat map and action plan will help you prepare a Modern Slavery Statement as required by UK and Australian legislation.

Why?


Bridge the Gap will help your businesses if:

Bridge the Gap will help your businesses if:

  • you need help developing a road map or action plan for identifying, assessing and managing modern slavery risks
  • demonstrating a proactive approach to managing modern slavery risks is important to your business, or
  • you just don’t know where to start!

Review your results visually.


Once you have answered all the questions, a visual ‘heat map’ is generated. The heat map provides optics on your strengths and opportunities to improve performance. You will also be provided with a summary paragraph of your results. You can print the heat map and summary paragraphs and exit the tool or you may choose to upgrade your plan to Standard.

To help you address identified gaps we’ve included 130 practical actions. You may wish to select high priority actions only (i.e. where the heat map shows a red result) or choose actions that address your orange and green results also. If continuous improvement is your thing, choose actions that help you strive for best practice – it’s up to you!
