This statement is made pursuant to s.54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that redpill have taken and is continuing to take to ensure that modern slavery and/or human trafficking is not taking place within our business or supply chain.

Modern slavery encompasses, but is not limited to, slavery, servitude, forced or compulsory labour and human trafficking. redpill will not tolerate, allow or turn a blind eye to any form of modern slavery or human trafficking.

We are strongly committed to acting ethically, with integrity and transparency in all business dealings, and to putting effective systems and controls in place to safeguard against any form of modern slavery or human trafficking taking place within the business or our supply chain.

1. Our Business

redpill operates internationally providing advertising and media representation services including but not limited to influencer management services, video production, social media, and media distribution activities.

2. Our Supply Chain

We procure services from a range of third-party providers, most being largely technical and/or professional, so the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking is low. This includes:

  • Renting an office space from a reputable company that in turn contracts key services such as cleaning and security services.
  • Using accredited professional services for our legal, accounting, and other advisory services.
  • Technical suppliers for our production purchases.

3. Our Policies

redpill operates several internal policies to ensure that we are conducting business ethically and transparently, in line with our Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking stance.

Recruitment Policy.

We operate a robust recruitment policy, including conducting ‘eligibility to work’ checks on all employees to safeguard against human trafficking or individuals being forced to work against their wishes.

Whistleblowing Policy.

We operate a whistleblowing policy so that all employees know that they can raise concerns about how they or their colleagues are being treated, or practices within our business or supply chain, without fear or reprisals.

Business Conduct Policy.

This policy applies worldwide irrespective of whether the malpractice in question occurred in the past or present or is anticipated. Business malpractice will not be tolerated, whether committed by employees, subcontractors or business partners.

Supplier Code of Conduct Policy.

We seek to ensure that our Suppliers, and our third-party suppliers of goods and services, have effective systems and controls in place to establish that slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our supply chains.

Employee Training & Development Policy.

We provide all-team training on our Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking awareness, and redpill’s statement in relation to this is provided annually.

4. Compliance

The prevention, detection, and reporting of modern slavery in any part of redpill’s business or supply chains, globally, is the responsibility of all those working for the company or under redpill’s control. Everyone is required to avoid any activity that might lead to a breach of this policy.

If you believe or suspect a breach of or conflict with, this policy has occurred or may occur, you must notify your line manager or, if that is not appropriate, report it in accordance with the Whistleblowing policy. You are required to raise concerns about any issue or suspicion of modern slavery in any part of redpill’s business or supply chains as soon as possible.

If you are unsure about whether an act, the treatment of workers or their working conditions within any of redpill’s supply chains constitutes any of the various forms of modern slavery, please raise it with your line manager or reach out to the Operations Manager or People Director directly.

Within the UK you can also contact the government’s Modern Slavery helpline on 0800 0121 700 or online via Modern Slavery Helpline for further information and guidance on modern slavery.

redpill aims to encourage openness and will support anyone who raises genuine concerns in good faith under this policy, even if their concerns turn out to be misplaced.

redpill is committed to ensuring no one suffers any detrimental treatment or victimisation as a result of reporting in good faith a suspicion that modern slavery is, or maybe, taking place in any part of its business or in any of its supply chains.

5. Training and Communication

redpill has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery and human trafficking. This is communicated to all suppliers, contractors, sub-consultants and business partners when entering into new or renewed contracts with them.

6. Breach of Policy

Any employee who breaches this policy will face disciplinary action, up to and including summary dismissal for gross misconduct.
