Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 introduced new obligations in relation to slavery and human trafficking. Mission Software is fully supportive of the legislation as it is in keeping with our values. Mission Software is committed to the principles of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. As an equal opportunities employer, Mission Software is committed to creating and ensuring a non-discriminatory and respectful working environment and wants all its staff to feel confident that they can expose wrongdoing without any risk to themselves.
The nature of our organisation and supply chains means Mission Software has a low risk of being exposed to suppliers who utilise human trafficking or slavery. However, we are committed to improving our practices and processes to combat slavery and human trafficking, where we can.
Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk, we are reviewing our Procurement Policy and processes, which will ensure we have in place systems to:
- identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains;
- mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains; and
- monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
Supplier Adherence to our Values
We have a zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values, we will also develop a supply chain compliance programme. Mission Software maintains the following policies which are publicly accessible:
- Employee Code of Conduct
- Anti-Bribery Policy
- Anti-Fraud Policy
- Ethical Fundraising Policy
- Health & Wellbeing Policy
- Whistleblowing Policy
- Anti-Bullying and Harassment Policy
- Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy
- Safer Recruitment Policy
Mission Software does not enter into business with any organisation, in the United Kingdom or abroad, which knowingly supports or is found to be involved in slavery, servitude and forced or compulsory labour.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes the slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ended 31 October 2021.
