At Simply Business, we’re passionate about building a brighter, fairer society. And when it comes to doing our part, we’re serious about our commitments.
That’s why we’re committed to the Modern Slavery Act.
The Modern Slavery Act 2015 seeks to address the role of businesses in preventing modern slavery occurring in their supply chains and organisations. It applies to businesses of a certain size, who are required to publish a statement setting out the steps they have taken to comply with the Act.
Simply Business is the UK’s leading online broker for SME and landlord insurance. We are a private limited company operating in the UK.
We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships, and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking is not taking place anywhere in our business or in our supply chains.
Our employees are our biggest asset and we value them highly – this is reflected in Simply Business being awarded the Best Company to Work For in 2015 and 2016.
We want our suppliers and contractors to support our zero tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we’ve have taken the following steps in support of this goal:
Our review of supplier relationships and internal policies is ongoing.
Our Legal Director, who reports into the CEO, is responsible for overseeing the implementation of policies and procedures relating to and for preparing the annual Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes our Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for the financial year ending 31st December 2016.
