This statement has been published in accordance with the Modern Slavery Act 2015. It sets out the steps taken by Creative Networks to prevent modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chain.
Creative Networks seeks excellence in every aspect of our business and strives to ensure the highest standards of professionalism, integrity, and ethical business practice. We are committed to conducting our business in a lawful manner and this includes engaging with our suppliers to ensure that they share our high standards. We fully support the objective of the Modern Slavery Act of 2015, which requires businesses to set out what steps they have taken during the financial year to ensure that modern slavery is not occurring in their supply chains and in their own organisation.
Creative Networks was established in 2005 by the current Managing Director after having worked in the industry for many years. It became apparent that the way forward for businesses was to offer Managed Services, with the focus of making businesses more efficient. Creative Networks has embraced changes in the IT sector for over 15 years and continues to do so today. Shortly after inception, we were met with steady growth working closely in the Automotive, Professional Services and Manufacturing sectors. We are an established company with qualified engineers and a manned help desk. Our customers have seen great success using our services built on experience and a strong work ethic.
Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights. It takes various forms, such as slavery, servitude, forced and compulsory labour and human trafficking, all of which have in common the deprivation of a person’s liberty by another to exploit them for personal or commercial gain.
Creative Networks has a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery, and we are committed to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business dealings and relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place anywhere in our own business or in any of our supply chains.
Supply Chain Management
To ensure that the wider Creative Networks service offering is in accordance with the direction of the policy on aspects of Modern Slavery, Creative Networks has placed a flow-down obligation on all suppliers of services and goods whereby the provisions of the Modern Slavery Act are a contractual obligation. This will ensure that any future statements made by Creative Networks are supported by the provision of relevant facts, information, and accounts from our supply chain so that Creative Networks can be confident of zero child and forced labour use within our supply chains. Creative Networks shall take responsibility for this statement which will be reviewed and updated as appropriate.
