Geria Limited (referred to Geria) has a zero-tolerance approach to any form of modern slavery in its business and supply chains. Modern slavery encompasses slavery, servitude, human trafficking, and forced labor. We are committed to acting ethically and with integrity and transparency in all business dealings and reject any form of modern slavery or human trafficking taking place within our business or our supply chain.
Geria is passionate about connecting great tech talents to global opportunities, and supporting them as they become technology leaders.
Geria Limited supports talent through onboarding and working with clients. Geria Limited offers a wide range of services and products to meet client and talent needs, including job placements, assessments, payroll services, and value-added services for the Geria Limited talent community, such as insurance, and education services offerings.
Although identifying, recruiting and onboarding tech talents is our main focus, we also procure goods and services generally required for the smooth operation of any international business – including IT services and software. Our supply chains also include professional services from our lawyers, accountants, consultants and other advisors.
Given the nature of its business, Geria has comparatively limited procurement activities (talent acquisition aside). Nevertheless, the company takes a robust approach to determine which suppliers it contracts with and is not prepared to maintain business relations with any supplier found to have committed, or been involved with, modern slavery, human trafficking, or forced labor abuses. Our opposition to modern slavery and human trafficking is codified in our Employee Handbook, which also provides for incident reporting, and reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in all our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to eliminate, as far as possible, the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking taking place anywhere in our business or supply chains.
By way of example, steps we have taken to help ensure modern slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our business or supply chain include:
Our compliance, audit, and legal teams are involved in ensuring this process works and will monitor it regularly, adapting as necessary to the changing needs of our business.
To ensure a high level of understanding of the risks of modern slavery and human trafficking in our business and in our supply chains, where appropriate, we will be asking our vendors to provide training to their staff and suppliers.
