Due diligence processes
All Response Media undertakes due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers. We have a preferred supplier list which is regularly
reviewed. The organisation’s due diligence and reviews include:
- An online search to ensure that the organisation has never been convicted of offences relating to modern slavery.
- Suppliers hold their own suppliers to account over modern slavery.
- For UK suppliers that they pay their employees at least the national minimum wage / national living wage.
- For international suppliers that they pay their employees any prevailing minimum wage applicable within their country.
We take these conditions seriously and may terminate the contract for any suppliers who seriously evoke these conditions.
Risk assessments are conducted on an on-going basis to evaluate the risks relating to slavery and human trafficking and no areas of concern have been highlighted during these evaluations. Given the nature of the services the business provides, we consider our exposure to be of a low risk to both modern slavery and human trafficking
We believe our effectiveness can be measured by the fact that we have notreceived any reports from employees, law enforcement agencies or the
public indicating that modern slavery practices have been identified that we are taking the necessary measures within the business and our supply chain.
Developed communication and training mechanisms, including an employee handbook, that raises awareness of the issue of modern slavery,
what to look out for and actions to take if there is any concern is distributed to all employees. In addition, all new starters during their
induction are briefed on the issues of modern slavery and human trafficking.
As Part of our ongoing training programme to create a non-discriminatory, healthy work environment, we ran training courses on Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging, Mental Health Awareness and Meditation Courses as we believe a healthy work environment is essential to the physical and mental wellbeing of our employees.
