ElysianIT are serious about our brand because it’s part of our identity and so is our commitment to corporate social responsibility. We believe transparency is the best way we can ensure the public that we are doing our best as an ethical corporate citizen. In that spirit, we have published here our statement of slavery and human trafficking, made in compliance with Section 54 of the (UK) Modern Slavery Act, in which we explain how slavery and human trafficking can affect our business and the steps we are taking in the fight against it.
This statement is intended to fulfil the legal requirement for a slavery and human trafficking statement on behalf of ElysianIT.
Our efforts against slavery and human trafficking complement Elysian’s broader commitment to policies, ethics and corporate social responsibility.
1. Developing policy
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. We continue to work in line with the general business principles as outlined above, which encapsulate Elysian’s commitment to acting
ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure key rights to stakeholders are observed. ElysianIT will continue to monitor and update (where necessary) its existing general business principles to reaffirm its commitment to ensuring slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere
in our supply chains. ElysianIT has an experienced procurement process which endeavours to follow the Elysian procurement policy and monitor compliance with this as well as overseeing individual supplier appointments.
2. Identifying and addressing risk
As part of our initiative to identify and mitigate risk we continue to hold meetings and discussion groups within the procurement, compliance, legal and human resources departments to further develop policy, systems and best practice.
We continue to look at implementing systems 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; and
• Protect whistle blowers.
3. Supply chain due diligence and training
We will look to implement (where practicable) additional supply chain due diligence, consisting of completing practical exercises when selecting our suppliers and ensuring contractual commitment to anti-slavery and human trafficking legislation. Elysian has a set of general purchasing terms which, if entered into by a supplier, require the supplier to comply with all applicable laws, have and maintain their own policies and procedures to ensure compliance
with all applicable laws and comply with our Business Partner Code of Conduct.
To further ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we have implemented training to our staff. Training is now provided to all staff on their induction with Elysian. We will continue to augment and amend our existing training programme around ethics and good business practices. Elysian’s recruitment process continues to follow company policy in relation to direct recruitment and the use of recruitment agencies.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes Elysian’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 31 December 2021. It relates to the actions taken by ElysianIT Limited in tackling modern slavery and human trafficking during the year and has been approved by the directors of ElysianIT Limited.
