Our Supply Chains
Our supply chain requirements are predominantly related to the deployment of people to our clients. We understand this is our biggest potential area of exposure.
Our zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery is communicated to all suppliers, contractors and business partners at the outset of our business relationship with them and reinforced as appropriate thereafter. We expect the same high standards from all of our contractors, suppliers and other business partners, and as part of our contracting processes, we 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.
Our contractors are engaged as suppliers through a Contract for Services. Where that engagement is through an ‘umbrella’ company, a thorough process of due diligence is completed to ensure adherence to a range of standards including the company’s policy and practices in relation to The Modern Slavery Act.
All contractors and employees undergo a thorough background screening process which verifies their identity and eligibility to work status.
Our relevant policies, which are available to all staff include:
- Corporate Social Responsibility Policy
- Equal Opportunities Policy
- Whistleblowing Policy
Our competency framework also sets out the behaviours we expect from employees in their dealings with colleagues, clients, suppliers and contractors. These competencies are reinforced through the performance management process and reward strategy.
Momenta requires all employees to complete training on modern slavery. The training covers how to identify the signs of slavery and human trafficking; what initial steps should be taken if slavery or human trafficking is suspected; how to escalate potential slavery or human trafficking issues to the relevant parties within the organisation and what external help is available.
We will continue to keep awareness high amongst employees to ensure they know how they can identify and prevent slavery and human trafficking, they know what to do to flag any potential issues and where to go for help.
This statement was approved on 27th March 2019 by Momenta’s board of directors who review and update it annually.
