Our Supply Chains
Given the nature of our business, we do not have an extensive supply chain network. Our supply chains include (but are not limited to): marketing consultants, information technology providers (software and hardware) and software developers, professional services, insurance and benefits providers, recruitment agencies, cleaning and catering services, office facilities and maintenance service providers and advertising production, market research and other marketing services providers.
Our Policy On Slavery and Human Trafficking
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our policy reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slivery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.
Risk Assessment and Due Diligence Processes
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains, we have undertaken an initial risk assessment to identify, assess and prioritise potential risk areas across the Company and its supply chains, such assessment being based on geography, the product or services supplied and the nature of the business transaction. This assessment is to be incorporated into our existing risk assessment process which is undertaken at regular intervals.
We continue to view our industry and the majority of our suppliers as low-risk. Where any higher-risk area are identified, we will seek to mitigate the risk of modern slavery occurring by building a more detailed review of potentially high-risk suppliers into our internal audit process by:
- Gathering further information of the potentially high-risk services
- Obtaining relevant contractual terms
- Taking steps to vet the supplier, for example, visiting the supplier offices
Training and Awareness
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we are committed to:
- Providing appropriate training to relevant staff
- Communicating our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery to relevant suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them, and where appropriate thereafter
Business employees have access to a confidential whistleblowing process for raising concerns. We continue to increase awareness among employees of issues related to slavery and human trafficking including ensuring the mechanism available to our workforce are sufficiently known about, trusted and accessible. Our existing process aims to ensure individuals affected would not be victimised further and provide access to counselling and support.
We will periodically review the effectiveness of the steps we are taking to ensure that there is no slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains. Our aim is to monitor and, where necessary, to improve our policies, procedures and systems.
