Ajeka Anti Modern Slavery Statement

January 2024


Ajeka is committed to protecting human rights, their liberties and freedom. We take our obligations to Anti-Modern Slavery laws seriously and have prepared this document to set out our policy on modern slavery & human trafficking. This statement explains the steps we take to ensure we do not directly or indirectly participate in any modern slavery activities as defined in the Australian Modern
Slavery Act 2018 (Cth)1 (“Act”).

What is Modern Slavery

Modern slavery is a crime and a violation of fundamental human rights, resulting in the deprivation of personal liberty to exploit them for personal or commercial gain. It is a real and present problem for millions of people around the world, who are being kept and exploited in various forms of slavery. The United Nations estimate that 40 million persons are victims of modern slavery around the world at any given time.

All companies are at risk of being involved in Modern Slavery through their operations and supply chain.

Respect for human rights & the ethical treatment of every single person who interacts with Ajeka – our colleagues, customers, partners & suppliers – is fundamental to our value system. It is what we stand for.

No Tolerance, Never, Ever

We at Ajeka maintain a zero-tolerance approach to modern slavery & human trafficking in our business.

This includes ensuring the same of our suppliers & partners in our direct & indirect supply chains.

About Ajeka

Ajeka Pty Ltd (ACN 629 139 813) is an industry-focused technology advisory & consulting firm that has operated in Australia since 2018. We provide Australian-based skilled industry consultants & technology resources to our clients. We are a privately-held proprietary limited company.

We are committed to local skills development, providing committed professional development programs to all our team to avert dependency on offshore resources for high-demand skills. As a core principle of the company since inception, we do this to develop our people throughout their careers & to ensure we provide ethical employment conditions for all our team.

As a growing company, we need to keep reviewing and improving all our core controls, including our approach to modern slavery and human trafficking.

We are seeking independent certification of our commitment & compliance to anti-modern slavery through CCIQ, where upon we will register a voluntary modern slavery statement with the Federal Government.

Third Party Selection

We keep our operations simple, yet our supply chain is made up of several parties, including small business entities through to large multinational organisations. We have ensured that each party has attested their compliance with the Act.

As of 01 January 2022, to the best of our knowledge, there have been no incidents of modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chain.

All third parties we choose to work with must comply with applicable laws, regulations & confirm that they (or any associated party) have not been involved in human trafficking or slavery activity as defined by
the Act.

Monitoring & Training

Our third-party onboarding process is continuously evaluated to determine how we may better understand & address modern slavery risks.

We seek to operate with the highest level of integrity in all our business relationships. We treat third parties in a way which reflects our own values. We work with a variety of third parties, primarily technology, companies, retailers, professional services such as communications, marketing & legal firms. The majority of these are based in Australia and the United States of America, which have a low prevalence of modern slavery according to the Global Slavery Index.

Later this year, we are launching digital training course for modern slavery with associated certification & automatic refresher training for our entire team to improve the mode of content delivery and testing of knowledge & understanding.

Protecting Our Team

All employees are subject to extensive background checks to ensure they are eligible for their roles and that they hold the appropriate rights to work in their employment location. This is regularly monitored throughout their employment, with automatic notifications set for various conditions based on an individual’s personal circumstances.

Written employment contracts clearly lay out people’s rights and responsibilities. We take considerable care to make sure everyone at Ajeka is aware of their Fair Work rights. We provide full transparency of all employee entitlements including sick pay, holiday pay and other benefits.

Speak Up – Speak Out

Our Speak Up-Speak Out policy provides capability to enable anyone at Ajeka to raise concerns about a danger, risk or wrongdoing which affects others, or risks the reputation of Ajeka.

All in the team can Speak Up – Speak Out to their line manager, Talent & Culture lead or to any senior manager. We also provide an option for anonymous input to give all team members a means to raise concerns privately.
