Modern Slavery Statement
Effective Date: 14th January 2021
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.
The Company has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
We are also committed to ensuring there is transparency in our own business and in our approach to tackling modern slavery throughout our supply chains, consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015.
We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, in the coming year we will include specific prohibitions against the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labour, or anyone held in slavery or servitude, whether adults or children, and we expect that our suppliers will hold their own suppliers to the same high standards.
This policy applies to all persons working for us or on our behalf in any capacity, including employees at all levels, directors, officers, agency workers, seconded workers, volunteers, interns, agents, contractors, external consultants, third-party representatives and business partners.
The prevention, detection and reporting of modern slavery in any part of our business or supply chains is the responsibility of all those working for us or under our control. All of our employees, directors and shareholders are required to avoid any activity that might lead to, or suggest, a breach of this policy.
We encourage our employees to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any parts of our business or supply chains of any supplier tier at the earliest possible stage.
We ask our key existing suppliers to officially confirm how they manage transparency in their supply chains and
comply with our requirements. We require all our key suppliers to confirm their continued compliance on the above on an annual basis and inform us immediately when something changes.
We encourage anyone, including colleagues, suppliers, sub-suppliers, clients, to report in good faith any issue or
concerns about potential unethical business practices, such as fraud and bribery or slavery and human trafficking
through our duly authorised Directors.
The Directors have overall responsibility for ensuring our Anti-Slavery policy complies with our legal and ethical obligations, and that all those under our control comply with it.
Digitalent Recruitment has primary and day-to-day responsibility for implementing this policy, monitoring its use and effectiveness, dealing with any queries about it, and auditing internal control systems and procedures to ensure they are effective in countering modern slavery.
Management at all levels are responsible for ensuring those reporting to them understand and comply with this policy and are given adequate and regular training on it and the issue of modern slavery in supply chains.
