Anti-slavery statement

Float takes a zero-tolerance approach to slavery and human trafficking.

We are committed to ensuring that they do not take place in our businesses and we take steps to ensure that they do not take place in our supply chains. These steps taken are monitored on a regular basis.

As a UK-based company, Float works primarily within the areas of education and digital technology. We consider the sectors in which we operate and our supply chains to be at lower risk of slavery.

Our supply chain

Our internal policies require clear arrangements to be put in place with all new suppliers, and our zero tolerance approach is reflected within our due diligence processes and the standard terms that our suppliers must agree to. Geographically, our supply chains are predominantly based in the UK.

Internal policies

As a Living Wage employer, Float is committed to paying everyone working on our premises, whether permanent staff or contractors, a higher minimum rate of pay than the current National Living wage set by the government.   

We have communicated our zero-tolerance approach to all our colleagues and will continue to do so. We have appointed an individual who is responsible for overseeing the communication of the anti-slavery and anti-human trafficking message both within the organisation and within our supply chains.
