Bradford strives to enrich the lives of its customers, employees and Supply Chain partners. We aim to develop and market a variety of inspired, unique, and highly valued programs, products and services that resonate with their interests and passions. All the while, we recognize the challenge of the workplace environment.
Bradford is committed to the identification and elimination of all types of forced labour and human-trafficking within its supply chain providers. We are committed to improving labour practices, and we endeavour to achieve fair, safe and healthy work-place conditions not only in our Supply Chain, but in our worldwide corporate offices.
Supply Chain Verification
Bradford utilizes a Factory Profile tool to evaluate potential factories. The Factory Profile tool and on-site visits by Bradford employees, together with engagement of third party auditing, is mandatory for acceptance of a factory into our Supply Chain. Continued monitoring to ensure adherence to the Bradford Code of Conduct is mandatory.
Once a factory is approved to the Bradford Supply Chain, the factory commits to:
On-going monitoring by Bradford employees and third party auditors;
An on-going commitment to improve conditions and internal systems to support the Code of Conduct; and
Resolve any identified gaps between workplace standards and the Code of Conduct.
Bradford's on-going training is built on the learning's from previous years.
