Our Staff:

We have around 180 staff, all of whom are based in the United Kingdom. Our staff are largely directly employed and are not in any category which is generally seen to be vulnerable to modern slavery in this country, so our focus is to ensure there are policies and procedures in place for our contractors and suppliers.

When recruiting, Limitless Digital Group Limited require that all recruitment agencies sign terms and conditions which provide us with assurance of their compliance with legislation to prevent slavery and human trafficking. The recruitment agencies with whom Limitless Digital Group Limited engage, have all signed those terms and conditions.

The Company does not believe there are any activities which may be considered high risk.

Slavery:

On an annual basis, Limitless Digital Group Limited undertakes an audit to ensure compliance of National Minimum Wage and National Living Wage requirements for all employees.

Limitless Digital Group Limited also ensures that all employees’ working hours are managed in line with the Working Time Regulations 1998.

Human Trafficking:

Limitless Digital Group Limited ensures that every employee or temporary worker has the right to work in the UK in line with Home Office guidance for the Prevention of Illegal Working.

Limitless Digital Group Limited ensures that all employees working for the Company are familiar with our policies and procedures and conduct themselves in a way which positively reflects our values as a fair, non-discriminatory and equal opportunities employer.

Supply Chains:

Limitless Digital Group Limited want to ensure that members of our supply chain equally support our Company Values.

Since 2018, Limitless Digital Group Limited have been including declarations in all its supply and purchasing agreements and terms and conditions, to request compliance in respect of legislation to prevent slavery and human trafficking.

A large proportion of our suppliers have now signed these declarations and updated terms and conditions.

Looking Ahead:

Over the course of this financial year we will continue to work towards ensuring all suppliers have signed updated terms and conditions to require compliance in respect of legislation to prevent slavery and human trafficking.

In addition, we will also look to introduce training for staff who work within procurement as part of an awareness raising programme. It will cover:

  • the definition of modern slavery
  • spotting the signs of modern slavery
  • LDG’s requirements of suppliers
  • LDG’s expectations of employee conduct (as a representative of LDG)
