Issued: 2 August 2019
This statement is made on behalf of Network Distribution (Jersey) Limited trading as Webreality, pursuant to section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015.
As a professional provider of digital marketing services, employing people only in Jersey and the UK, we regard the risk of modern slavery within our business to be low and our supply chain to be non-complex. Nevertheless, we are committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain or in any part of our business, and our supplier appointment process takes account of such considerations.
Webreality is structured as a private limited company registered in its home jurisdiction of Jersey, where it was founded in 2000. We have one operations office in Jersey where the majority of our employees reside. Jersey’s employment legislation is modelled on that in force in the UK and provides equivalent employee protections in all respects that are material to modern slavery and human trafficking. A small minority of our employees work from their homes in the UK. All of our employees are paid well in excess of the local minimum wage.
Our supply chain
As a provider of professional services, our supply chain is not complex. The majority of the strategic suppliers supporting our service delivery are internationally-recognised providers of technology services whose own policies in relation to modern slavery and human trafficking are published and open to scrutiny. We do not contract with suppliers in industries or regions of the world where the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking are relatively high. The suppliers to our main operational office in Jersey (for example, catering, maintenance, repair, and cleaning services) are companies well known to us whose reputations and practices are recognised locally as meeting the highest standards.
We will keep supply chain risk assessment as an item for regular review on our board agenda and will implement any actions appropriate or necessary directly with suppliers.
