Back to Blogs

As members of the Association of Labour Providers (ALP), the Pro-Force team attended the 20th Anniversary celebrations, AGM and Roadshow earlier this week. Hosted by the Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority (GLAA) at their Nottingham offices, this event provided the perfect opportunity to hear from expert speakers, network and discuss the challenges facing labour providers and clients in 2024.

During the Roadshow, ALP Chair David Camp highlighted the ongoing challenges faced by the industry, including the changes in demand for temporary workers, increased business costs and labour shortages.

One of the key takeaways from the Roadshow was the importance of active compliance strategies in tackling labour exploitation. As an industry, we must all continue to actively work to ensure that our workers and clients are protected and that we are operating ethically and legally. Speakers addressed current issues and emerging trends in labour exploitation and shared compliance strategies to combat these challenges. Also discussed were upcoming changes in employment law and the new SMETA 7.0 requirements – more information can be found here: Unveiling the Upcoming New SMETA Audit Methodology: Enhancing Supply Chain Sustainability - Sedex

Attending events like the ALP Roadshow is essential for us as a leading labour provider to ensure that we continue to drive compliance excellence and provide our workers and clients with the highest level of service. We understand that staying informed and proactive is crucial to upholding our position. By actively engaging with expert speakers and our peers in this way, we equip ourselves with the latest knowledge and insights needed to navigate and adapt to the ever-changing challenges of our dynamic industry.

A huge thank you to the ALP and all involved in the event, we look forward to the next one.
