We do not tolerate any form of slavery or human trafficking within our business operations.
The software services industry is not considered to be a high-risk industry. However, the steps we have taken to ensure that modern slavery is not taking place in our organisation or our supply chains are set out below.
We have robust recruitment and onboarding processes with multiple checks built in to ensure that all individuals employed by us have the legal right to work in the UK, are paid a fair salary, are of the required minimum age to work, and are not subject to human trafficking or forced labour.
We ensure that all employees complete training to raise awareness of modern slavery issues.
We do not have intricate supply chains or multiple levels of contracting or subcontracting.
All supplier and business partner contracts require prior approval at senior management level.
Suppliers are subject to due diligence which includes requiring confirmation that they comply with the Act, that no form of modern slavery exists in their workforce or supply chain, and that they provide safe and fair working conditions for all staff.
