UK Modern Slavery Act
GSoft Technologies inc. is a software development company based in Montréal, Canada. Our mission is to craft the leading products to make work simpler, kinder and faster. We aim at creating a family of products that work together to shape the employee experience.
In order to achieve our mission, we count on a number of suppliers who provide us with professional and technological assistance. Our suppliers include:
- Service providers who host and process data in conjunction with our services;
- Third-party consultants who provide us with services in order to support our core functions (IT, accounting, legal, security, marketing, etc.);
- Other service providers who help us operate our offices (maintenance, food services, etc.).
Mitigation of Modern Slavery Risks
Our values are aligned with the principles driving the fight against modern slavery. Nevertheless, every time we need to procure goods or services, we carefully examine the risks at play. This is why we follow a few simple rules:
- We source goods and services locally whenever possible, or otherwise in trusted jurisdictions.
- We choose our providers among industry leaders, including publicly traded companies with robust reporting practices.
- We follow human resources best practices, thus ensuring that our employees and contractors have all the required authorizations to work.
Our Code of Ethics prohibits unlawful or unethical activities. We expect our employees, directors and contractors to abide by those rules. Any suspected violations are to be reported to our legal department or by submitting a statement via our confidential hotline.
Our policies uphold and embody the principles of internationally recognized human rights. They are aligned with the strong commitment to human rights and freedoms under Canadian laws.
Together, our policies and our Code of Ethics demonstrate our adherence to the highest standard of ethical business conduct.
Whenever we determine a risk is likely to materialize, we investigate the situation to assess whether a breach of our policies has occurred. Breaches which are not possible to adequately remedy may lead to the termination of our business relationship with the service provider found in default of upholding our standards.
Due to the fact that our operations are entirely located in Canada, and due to the nature of the goods and services we procure in order to carry on our business, we consider the modern slavery risk in the provision of our services to be very low. Nevertheless, we are committed to continue taking action in order to maintain a high standard of compliance towards human rights, and to remain modern slavery-free.
