Matobo Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Last updated: September 2020
Slavery and human trafficking remains a hidden blight on our global society. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain. Our employees are alert to the risks and are expected to report their concerns, and management are expected to act upon them.
Matobo Ltd is committed to ensuring that its employees and any workers are not subject to behaviour or threats that may amount to modern slavery, human trafficking, forced labour, and or similar human rights abuses.
We are also committed to ensuring that our approach to tackling modern slavery in our own business and throughout our supply chain is consistent with our disclosure obligations under the Modern Slavery Act 2015. We all have a responsibility to be alert to the risks, however small, in our business and in the wider supply chain.
This statement sets out Matobo Ltd’s actions to understand all potential modern slavery risks related to the business and to ensure steps are maintained to prevent both slavery and human trafficking.
Our principal activity is the writing, producing, publishing and hosting of an e-learning suite about Cyber Awareness, GDPR, Data Protection and Information Governance. We also produce short documentary films for educational institutes, charities and the public sector.
Our Modern Slavery Policy, along with our Recruitment, Corporate Social Responsibility, Code of conduct and Whistleblowing policies reflect our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships.
Our suppliers are a small team of in-house producers and freelancers with whom we have long-standing and trusted relationships.
Our processes for managing risk
In order to assess the risk of modern slavery, we use the following processes:
Identify and assess potential risk areas when considering taking on new suppliers and regularly review our existing supply chains.
Review the potential for risk at regular intervals, including the possibility of re-auditing a supplier or conducting spot checks.
We protect “whistle blowers” or anybody who raises a concern that challenges our business practices.
After due consideration, we have not identified any significant risks of modern slavery, forced labour, or human trafficking in our supply chain. However, we continue to be alert to the potential for problems.
Supplier Adherence To Our Values And Ethics
We have zero tolerance to slavery and human trafficking. We expect all those in our supply chain and contractors to comply with our values.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Matobo’s slavery and human trafficking statement.
