As an organization, we wish to safeguard our employees, society and the environment, and wholeheartedly endorse legislation as a crucially important development in tackling modern slavery and human trafficking; we will not trade or partner with any business or organization involved directly, indirectly or remotely in this practice.
Our supply chains include IT services, employment agencies, hospitality and venue suppliers, training providers and consultants, and office supplies. We review the risks these supply chains can present and while we consider our exposure to modern slavery to be limited, we expect our suppliers and contractors to demonstrate a zero-tolerance approach to exploitation.
As part of our procurement process, we monitor all large suppliers and contractors to confirm they have appropriate safeguards in place to protect against any form of involvement in modern slavery or human trafficking related practices.
We recognize that all our employees have a vital role to play in tackling the issue of modern slavery and human trafficking. We regularly review promote our corporate policies to ensure they appropriately address modern slavery and human trafficking concerns, including our whistleblowing policy which allows employees to report any concerns confidentially.
