MODERN SLAVERY ACT TRANSPARENCY STATEMENT
This statement is made on behalf of Farsight Consulting Limited. We are publishing this statement in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and as a demonstration of our commitment to anti-slavery practices and as an affirmation of the values we hold.
Farsight is committed to ensuring that the way we conduct our business and dealings with our suppliers reflects our values and respect for human rights. We are committed to working with suppliers that share these values and uphold the principles in this statement.
OUR BUSINESS AND ORGANISATIONAL STRUCTURE
Farsight is a management consulting firm focused mainly on the UK and with considerable experience in the UK public sector. We are known for helping clients solve complex problems and find creative solutions relating to digital transformation, use of technology and digital services and business transformation. We support our clients across the full spectrum of consulting, from strategy through delivery.
We are dedicated to maintaining a fair and ethical workplace for all our staff and to ensure compliance with all applicable employment legislation.
OUR SUPPLY CHAINS
As a provider of professional services, Farsight does not have a substantial supply chain. Farsight’s supplier relationships are primarily limited to: providers of specialist consultancy resources; partner consulting and digital transformation delivery companies; and smaller specialist consulting companies; providers of computer software and equipment (including cloud services). To operate our business we will make use of services from suppliers of office equipment and furnishings; suppliers of catering services (e.g. for conferences and for meetings); and utilities suppliers. As such, we believe the risk of modern slavery existing within our supply chain is very low. Nonetheless, we remain vigilant and monitor the level of risk involved throughout any of our suppliers and will take appropriate measures if a higher risk of modern slavery is deemed to exist. We are committed to partnerships with suppliers that share our dedication to conducting business in a legal, ethical, and socially responsible manner.
We have implemented policies relating to our commitment to ethical business practices. 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 expect all our contractors, suppliers and other business partners to uphold the same high standards as we do, by ensuring all employees and workers are treated with dignity and respect in a fair and ethical environment. We seek to work with organisations who have made similar declarations to this statement and who live by these principles.
Our employment policies comply with relevant labour laws. In addition, we provide equal opportunities in employment and employees are treated fairly and without discrimination on the basis of any protected characteristics. Further, we expect that all suppliers will abide by applicable labour laws, operate in a manner consistent with the principles of human rights and will not use forced labour or child labour in any form. Minimally, suppliers are expected to comply with any applicable international and local legal requirements in their countries of operation.
TREATMENT OF EMPLOYEES
At Farsight, we pride ourselves on our people service; attracting bright minds that hold a diverse set of skills, perspectives and experiences. We therefore recognise, value and respect individual differences and work to create a culture of inclusion and diversity. We ensure that employees are properly trained to do their jobs and have processes in place to support and manage development. In addition, we provide a clean, healthy and safe work environment and we promote wellbeing at work. We strive to continue to improve through ongoing discussions with our teams, advisors, partners and clients.
We work to identify, assess, and monitor any potential areas of risk in relation to our business and supply chains. This includes considering the length of the relationship, nature of what is being supplied and the location from where it is being supplied. We will continue to look to manage any risks identified.
We will continue to monitor and develop our practices in respect of combatting slavery or human trafficking. Our operations and legal functions are responsible for checking and testing the success of our commitments and will work to ensure we meet our expectations.
