Modern Slavery Act Statement 2015
Modern Slavery Act Statement 2015
Slavery and human trafficking statement
This is a statement made by The&Partners Group Limited and its subsidiaries (together being the “Group”) in relation to the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and describes our commitment and the steps we take to prevent modern slavery in our businesses and our supply chain.
The&Partners Group Limited is an independent agency holding company that brings together specialisms including creative and design, media planning and buying, content and digital engagement, PR and influencer marketing, live events and experiential, and data analytics and CRM. We are a cross-discipline group built for the current complex industry landscape.
Our supply chains mainly include production companies, media agencies, software companies, I.T. and other office equipment, professional services, office cleaning and other office facilities services. We have carried out a risk assessment and have a very low risk of any modern slavery in relation to our own business, but we recognise that there is a low risk in relation to third party suppliers (particularly production partners) so we have focussed attention on identifying and minimising such risk in our supply chain (see ‘due diligence’ section below).
Our employment policies address issues such as equal opportunities, protection of personal data, whistleblowing, harassment and bullying, health and safety in the workplace, holiday and sick pay. These policies are reviewed annually to ensure that we protect the rights and freedoms of all those working in our business.
We do not tolerate any form of modern slavery or human trafficking in any part of our business. We require our suppliers to comply with all applicable laws, including modern slavery laws and to have suitable practices and procedures in place to ensure that human trafficking and slavery does not take place in their organisations or their supply chains. We enforce a strict code of compliance and do not tolerate slavery or human trafficking within our supply chains. We monitor our suppliers on an ongoing basis and will immediately seek to terminate our relationship with any suppliers who we believe may be involved in modern slavery or human trafficking.
Effectiveness and Key Performance Indicators
We use a number of key performance indicators (KPIs) to measure how effective we have been to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business or supply chains, including KPIs regarding:
(a) training our staff about modern slavery issues
(b) contacting our suppliers to seek information about their employee rights awareness training procedures or employee contracts
(c) carrying out annual supplier audits
(d) regular auditing of our approach to managing the risk of modern slavery
We are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery, human trafficking, or unlawful child labour in our supply chains or any part of our business. Through an ongoing review of our policies and procedures, we will continue to ensure that the risk of slavery and human trafficking is carefully monitored and fully understood by all employees in our business.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Group’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2021.
