Modern Slavery Act 2015

Modern slavery and human trafficking statement

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.

This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes IAM Technology Group Ltd’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2019.

Organisational structure

We are a developer and provider of cloud and desktop-based IT management software. Our company operates out of our UK-based headquarters, and we exclusively employ UK-based full-time workers.

Our supply chains include:

  • Large cloud services vendors, such as Microsoft Corporation, Amazon Web Services, and Rackspace Ltd.
  • UK-based third-party advisors and agencies, to support activities such as Accounting, Legal advice and Security auditing.

 Our policies 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.

In light of the obligation to report on measures to ensure that all parts of our business and supply chain are slavery free we have reviewed our workplace policies and procedures to assess their effectiveness in identifying and tackling modern slavery issues.

Our workplace policies and procedures demonstrate our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our supply chains.

Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we audit our processes and policies bi-annually and ensure that any suppliers and partners we work with have adequate provisions and supporting statements around modern slavery and human trafficking. We have systems in place to:

  • Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
  • Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
  • Protect whistle blowers.

Supplier adherence to our values

We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we ensure audits take place annually and for each new supplier or distributor. We have support and direct involvement from our Director/Board level and down to ensure complete compliance is upheld.

Training & effectiveness

To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business, we provide training to our staff. Chaired by a company Director, we evaluate our business processes and policies bi-annually to ensure continuing engagement and commitment to combatting slavery and human trafficking.
