Modern slavery statement
Last updated: 22 February 2022
As a SME trading below the threshold we are not required to make a formal statement. However we recognise that many of our clients will be seeking reassurance from us about our compliance with the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another in order to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.
We are a provider of digital software development and consultancy services to organisations globally.
We operate a consultancy model in our business. Our services are provided by our employees, independent contractors and partner companies.
Our supply chains
Our supply chains include our independent contractors, each of whom owns their own independent business, partner companies, various professional and administrative services (accountancy, payroll, and so on), and technology specialists (such as infrastructure providers).
We have conducted a risk assessment of these suppliers which is available on request.
Our commitment to combating slavery and human trafficking
There are relatively few risks in our supply chains or within our business. One of the reasons for this is because we are guided by our overall approach to doing business which requires high standards of honesty and integrity from our team.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we have conducted a risk assessment and will review this on an annual basis.
We have agreed that the Board will have responsibility for our work in this area and will coordinate training on the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 to all our independent contractors and partner companies. This will include outlining how they can raise any concerns about potential violations of our code of ethics or if there are concerns about any of our clients being involved in activities which are contrary to the spirit and intentions of the modern Slavery Act.
