Ajar Group Limited Modern Slavery Policy

Managing Digital and ManagingDigital.com are trademarks of Ajar Group Limited.

Ajar Group Limited (AGL) is committed to combating slavery and human trafficking in its business and supply chain, and to acting ethically and with integrity in its business relationships. This statement is made pursuant to section 54 of the UK Modern Slavery Act 2015. It constitutes AGL’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ended 31 October 2024.

Our Organization

We are Ajar Group Limited (AGL) incorporated and registered in England and Wales with company number 10432472 whose registered office is at 37 Great Pulteney Street, Bath BA2 4DA, United Kingdom.

This policy applies to AGL operating under the AGL brand or under our other trading names which include Managing Digital™, ManagingDigital.com™, CC&C Europe and jnwarfield.com.

Websites operated by AGL include managingdigital.commanagingdigital.io, danwarfield.io, ccceurope.com, jnwarfield.com and ajarpublishing.com. AGL also owns the ajargroup.co.uk and ajargroup.com internet domains.

AGL is a member of The Open Group and abides by their compliance requirements. Our group has fewer than 50 staff, based primarily in the United Kingdom and the United States. Our staff are either directly employed by AGL or are independent professionals contracted for specific professional services.

Our staff are primarily senior business or technology professionals such as Enterprise Architects, university lecturers, software design consultants, IT strategists, etc. None are in a category generally seen to be vulnerable to modern slavery in the UK or elsewhere.

All contractors are required to comply with all applicable employment law and money laundering, tax and other relevant regulations.

Our Supply Chain

AGL uses a small range of reputable suppliers of goods for resale or professional services and support for our operations. We have no suppliers based in high-risk countries, and/or manufacturing goods for resale.

Our suppliers include organizations such as Vodafone, Cisco, Zoom, InMotion Hosting, Van Haren Publishing B.V., Van Haren Learning B.V, Dell, CC&C Solutions (Australia), and The Open Group, and licensed professionals such as solicitors and chartered accountants. We regard all our current suppliers as very low risk for modern slavery and thus do not actively vet them or require compliance statements

Training

AGL and CC&C do not conduct formal internal training with regard to modern slavery. This may change if our staffing or supply chain profile changes, as described below.

Due Diligence and Compliance

Our policy on compliance matters is always to take competent professional advice to ensure awareness of potential requirements, and implementation of correct policy based on actual requirements.

Thus, while the turnover of AGL is too small for a statement such as this to be mandatory, we have anticipated this by creating and publishing this policy with the participation of professional advice from the UK Institute of Directors and our own solicitors.

While we currently view all our staff and suppliers as low risk for modern slavery, we are conscious that this may change in the future. Our policy therefore is that before contracting with suppliers based in high-risk countries and/or manufacturing goods for resale by AGL, or employing or contracting for local staff in categories seen to be vulnerable to modern slavery, that AGL will seek and take professional advice to ensure that any such action done in accordance with such UK and other laws and regulations as may be in force at that time, and with industry best practice.

This may include (for example):

  • Appropriate contract language
  • Vetting and record checking for individuals
  • Enhanced policy statements including procurement policies
  • Training

Enforcement

We will investigate any allegation that a supplier has breached a contractual or statutory obligation to comply with anti-slavery requirements, and when this is the case, we will terminate the contract and report the breach to the relevant authorities.

Approval

This statement has been approved by the Directors of Ajar Group Limited.
