Peppy Modern Slavery Statement

We’re doing our bit to make the world a better place for all

Introduction

This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It constitutes Peppy Health Limited’s (Peppy) slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ended 30 September 2019.

Our Organisation

Peppy delivers benefits that employees love. We work with leading healthcare practitioner organisations, expert practitioners and the world’s best companies to improve the health and wellbeing of employees going through major life transitions.

Our staff are largely based in the UK and directly employed. They are generally not in any category which is seen to be vulnerable to modern slavery in this country, so our main focus is to ensure there are policies and due diligence procedures in place for our suppliers.

Our Supply Chain

Peppy is committed to continuously improving its practices to identify and eliminate any slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chains, and to acting ethically and with integrity in all its business relationships. Most of Peppy’s suppliers are global technology organisations.

Policies

Peppy has a number of policies which underpin our approach to tackling the risk of modern slavery in our supply chain. These include:

– Code of Conduct which sets out the ethical expectations of all Peppy employees;

– Whistleblowing Policy which an anonymous reporting channel to report violations of information security (“whistleblowing”). This encourages staff and volunteers to report concerns including any related to modern slavery/trafficking and child or forced labour.

Additionally, we consider risks related to modern slavery/trafficking as part of our information security assessments (part of our ISO27001 compliance).

Due Diligence

We monitor suppliers we believe present high modern slavery risks in our supply chain.

All suppliers which we class as high risk must:

– complete our Modern Slavery Act Due Diligence Questionnaire which covers their governance, policies, training and supply chain management processes; and

– on an annual basis and prior to sourcing, provide full detail of the supply chains they are proposing to commission goods from on behalf of Peppy.

A Peppy team is responsible for assessing the information submitted by suppliers where applicable. Should a supplier fail to provide the information requested or to meet Peppy’s expectations, Peppy will take appropriate action. For example, this may include not entering into a relationship or suspending/terminating our relationship with a supplier.

Training

We provide advice and guidance to individuals with direct responsibility for relevant supply chains. We distribute this statement to all staff on an annual.

Looking Ahead

As we grows we will continue to enhance our procedures to help us identify, prevent and mitigate any risks of modern slavery or human trafficking in relation to new and existing suppliers and in relation to our own operations.

Approval

This statement has been formally approved by the Directors of Peppy Health Limited.
