Modern Slavery Policy Statement
Modern slavery is an unquestionable and indefensible violation of an individual’s basic human rights. VideoFirst recognises that as a commercial organisation it has a moral and social responsibility to take a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery in all forms. We are committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities, and to ensuring, as far as we are able, that our supply chains are free from slavery and human trafficking.
Current Activity: We undertake due diligence when considering taking on new suppliers, and are in the process of reviewing our existing suppliers. This due diligence includes: Understanding our supply chain so as to identify and assess particular product or geographical risks of modern slavery and human trafficking. Evaluating modern slavery and human trafficking risks through the completion of our ‘Quality and Sustainability Agreement’ and our ‘Supplier Declaration’. Conducting supplier audits. Terminating our relationship with suppliers that fail to improve their performance in line with an action plan or violate our supplier code of conduct. We operate the following policies that assist our approach to the identification of modern slavery risks and steps to be taken to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our operations.
Whistleblowing Policy: We encourage all our employees, to report any concerns relating to unlawful conduct, malpractice, dangers to the public or the environment, and any other matter of a serious nature. The Modern Slavery Act 2015 (the “Act”) is specifically mentioned within this policy which is published in our company handbook.
Quality and Sustainability Agreement: We are committed to ensuring that our suppliers adhere to the highest standards of ethics. Suppliers are required to declare that they provide safe working conditions, treat workers with dignity and respect, and act ethically and within the law in their use of labour. Serious violations of the company’s Quality and Sustainability Agreement will lead to the termination of the business relationship.
Business Ethics Policy
Our policy sets out the core values which we expect to be observed throughout the company. The policy specifically mentions the Act and is published in the company handbook. The company requires all employees working in supply chain management and relevant roles to complete training on how to assess the risk of slavery and human trafficking in relation to various aspects of the business, how employees can identify the signs of slavery and human trafficking and what should be done if this activity is suspected. Awareness training is provided for all main board members and entity directors and any other staff in relevant and appropriate roles.
Board Approval: This statement has been approved by the board of VideoFirst who will review and update it annually. This statement is made pursuant of section 54(1) of the Act and constitutes our slavery and human trafficking statement for the end of the current financial year.
Equal Opportunity And Race Relations Policy
The policy and practice of VideoFirst requires that all staff are afforded equal opportunities within employment and that entry into employment with VideoFirst and progression within employment will be determined only by personal merit and the application of criteria which are related to the duties of each particular post and the relevant salary structure. In all cases, ability to perform the job will be the primary consideration. Subject to statutory provisions, no applicant or member of staff will be treated less favourably than another because of his or her sex, marital status, sexual orientation, religion, creed, racial group, or disability.
We welcome diversity amongst our staff and seek to ensure that all candidates for employment are treated fairly, and that selection is based solely on the individual merits of candidates and on selection criteria relevant to the post. In pursuance of this aim and of its statutory duties, VideoFirst, as an employer committed to the principle of equality of opportunity, will adhere to the following procedure in the conduct of the recruitment and selection process for all posts.
Selection criteria for all posts will be clearly defined and reflected in the further particulars sent to candidates, which will also include details of our commitment to equality of opportunity. Job qualifications or requirements which would have the effect of inhibiting applications from members of particular groups, such as those of one sex, persons of a particular marital status or sexual orientation, persons of a particular racial group, or those with a disability, will not be demanded or imposed except where they are justifiable in terms of the job to be done. (For the purposes of this code, ‘racial group’ means a group of persons defined by reference to colour, race, nationality, or ethnic or national origins.)
Job advertisements will be publicised as widely as we can so as to encourage applications from a broad range of suitable candidates from all backgrounds. All job advertisements state the company’s commitment to equality of opportunity by including a footnote or final note indicating this. All those handling applications and conducting interviews are aware of the principles of the Sex Discrimination Act, the Race Relations Act, the Disability Discrimination Act, and other relevant legislation. All candidates will be compared objectively with the selection criteria, and all applications will be processed in the same way. Information sought from candidates and passed to those responsible for appointments will relate only to the qualifications for or requirements of the job. Wherever suitably qualified persons are available, there will be at least one member of each sex on the bodies responsible for shortlisting, interviewing, and making or recommending an appointment.
