Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement
Statement for the financial year ending 2018
NICE is committed to its practices to combat slavery and human trafficking in any form.
NICE Systems UK Limited, Actimize UK Limited and NICE Systems Technologies UK Limited (which are subject to the Modern Slavery Act 2015) are part of the NICE group of companies. NICE designs and supplies software dedicated to improving business performance, increasing operational efficiency, prevent financial crime, ensuring compliance, and enhancing safety and security. NICE employs over 6,000 people worldwide and has business operations across North America, Europe, Israel, India and Asia.
Supplier adherence to our values
As a software and services supplier NICE does not have a large or complicated supply chain and our suppliers are typically vetted, well-established service providers such as external lawyers, accountants, research companies and consultants. Some of our suppliers are based in the relevant jurisdiction of the NICE entities they supply while others are engaged on a global scale.
Other suppliers in our chain mainly relate to the provision of administrative and non-revenue related services such as cleaners, employment agencies, sub-contractors for certain equipment, off-site storage and SaaS solutions used for human resources, finance and sales.
Contractual relationships in our supply chain contain provisions requiring supplier’s assurance of compliance with modern slavery and human trafficking laws.
Due diligence processes for slavery and human trafficking
As part of our measures to identify and mitigate risk we have in place systems to:
- Ensure our internal employment practices adhere to employment laws and regulation.
- Identify and assess potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring in our supply chains.
- Monitor potential risk areas in our supply chains.
- Protect whistle blowers.
Should any supplier be found to use modern slavery in their business or in any part of their supply chain we are permitted to take steps which can include discussions with the relevant supplier around remediation actions or termination of the contract.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our supply chains and our business, we intend to provide training to our staff to identify signs and risks of slavery and human trafficking. We will require our suppliers and business partners to provide training to their staff, suppliers and providers.
Our effectiveness in combating slavery and human trafficking
We will aim to continually monitor and improve our approach to tackling slavery and human trafficking in our business or supply chains.
Following a recent review of our process we intend to continue to take the following further steps to combat slavery and human trafficking: (i) continue to seek assurances from suppliers that their and their supply chains comply with the Modern Slavery act 2015; and (ii) undertake an assessment and review of our policies periodically.
This statement is made pursuant to section 54(1) of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and constitutes NICE’s slavery and human trafficking statement for the financial year ending 2017/18.
