Treating people as people

Human rights are fundamental principles. They allow the individual freedom to lead a dignified and independent life, free from abuse and violations. They are based on rules of human behaviour common across diverse cultures. They are at the heart of stable, peaceful and equal societies.

The link between human rights and UK companies goes further than obeying the law. Companies need to consider not only how they treat their own employees and the communities around them but how their suppliers treat their employees and how they relate to authorities when people’s rights are at risk. The introduction of the UK Human Rights Act in October 2000 means that all UK companies need to be aware of their responsibilities regarding the rights of their employees.
