Modern Slavery Statement
Revision 1.0, January 2020
This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Agency Delta Ltd has taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery or human trafficking is not taking place within our businesses or their supply chains.
Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking and forced labour. Agency Delta has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery taking place within the business or our supply chain.
Agency Delta Ltd is a UK-based business, trading as Deltabase, and established in 2019. We offer an independent digital benchmarking and insight service. We are a privately owned business, and work with many different customers spread geographically, and use suppliers and data sources from across the world.
We operate internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business in an ethical and transparent manner. These include:
- Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking Policy. This policy sets out the organisation’s stance on modern slavery and explains how employees can identify any instances of this and where they can go to for help.
- Recruitment Policy. We operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting eligibility to work in the UK checks for all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their will.
- Whistleblowing Policy. We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they can safely raise concerns about how colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear of reprisals.
We conduct due diligence on all suppliers before allowing them to be engaged with supplying our business.
As part of our engagement with suppliers, we require that they confirm to us that:
- They have taken steps to eradicate modern slavery within their business.
- They hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery.
- (For UK based suppliers) They pay their employees at least the national minimum wage / national living wage (as appropriate).
- (For international suppliers) They pay their employees any prevailing minimum wage applicable within their country of operations.
- We may terminate the contract at any time should any instances of modern slavery come to light.
Our Performance Indicators
We will know the effectiveness of the steps that we are taking to ensure that slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain if:
- No reports are received from employees, the public, or law enforcement agencies to indicate that modern slavery practices have been identified.
