Anti-slavery & human trafficking statement
As an organisation providing SaaS and related services with a relatively short supply chain, we assess the risk of modern slavery within our business and supply chain to be low. The entire company is committed to working ethically and with high integrity. We consider modern slavery and human trafficking to be a fundamental issue. Accordingly, we are committed to ensuring that it does not take place anywhere within our business, including all offices and our supply chain.
We are opposed to modern slavery and human trafficking. This includes any form of slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour. We make sure that our staff can take appropriate steps if they are concerned about modern slavery. We maintain a Whistleblowing Policy and other sustainable business policies that ensure issues should not arise but if they do, any concerns raised can be dealt with appropriately.
Supplier due diligence
Across our entire supply chain, all contractors, suppliers and other business partners are expected to adopt the same high standard as we do to prevent modern slavery, by ensuring all employees and workers are treated with dignity and respect in a fair and ethical environment. All suppliers will be categorised according to the level of risk posed and an assessment will be made as to whether a plan of action is required to satisfy any gaps. We expect our suppliers to adopt the same principles when contracting with their own suppliers and plan to make this a requirement. We implement an audit programme for at-risk suppliers to ensure continued compliance with our obligations.
Training and performance
We make sure that our colleagues are aware of the issues surrounding modern slavery and support our values. We therefore intend to offer a training programme for existing employees and consultants to reinforce that we are opposed to modern slavery and human trafficking and clearly set out the steps to be taken in the event of any concerns. Our Risk Management Team is responsible for checking and testing the success of our commitments and will work with our team and other specialists to ensure we meet these expectations.
