Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking
Statement 2024

This statement expresses our commitment to prevent slavery and human trafficking in our corporate activities and to adhere to the relevant laws and regulations in Ireland and the UK.

Ergo is a leading IT solutions company, offering a range of services from cloud computing, digital transformation, managed services, software development, cyber security, and more. Our team consists of over 500 staff and contractors, predominantly in Ireland and the UK, with partners and vendors around the world. We care about ensuring that our suppliers and contractors share our ethical and professional standards and are aware of our policies and expectations regarding modern slavery and human trafficking.
Ergo supports the principles of the Criminal Law (Human Trafficking) Acts 2008 and 2013, the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the abolition of modern slavery and human trafficking. Our whistleblowing policy enables our staff and contractors to report any wrongdoing without fear of retaliation, and we also verify the legal status and background of prospective employees and contractors to protect them from any abuse or coercion.
We incorporate modern slavery and human trafficking elements into the award of new or renewing contracts, even if they are based on the supplier’s terms and conditions. Our contracts with clients and suppliers will always make provision for us to terminate a relationship if the contracting party is found to be in breach of the modern slavery and human trafficking laws and regulations.
Ergo’s Anti-slavery and Human Trafficking policy is posted on the staff intranet along with all other company policies and procedures. It reflects our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective procedures and controls to minimise the risks of human trafficking and other modern slavery practices infiltrating our business operations and acting ethically and with integrity in all our business activities and relationships.
We are committed to supporting our clients and suppliers in meeting their obligations and to collaborate with them to address any potential risks or issues. Feedback and suggestions on how we can improve our policies and practices in this regard are always welcome, and this statement is reviewed annually to reflect our ongoing efforts and achievements in this area.
Ergo is proud of its culture of respect, diversity, and inclusion, and strive to create a safe and supportive environment for our staff and contractors, and to foster positive and ethical relationships with our clients and suppliers. We are determined to play our part in the fight against modern slavery and human trafficking, and to uphold our values and principles in everything we do.

This statement, and the actions contained therein, are approved by both the Executive Board of Directors and by Paul McCann, Chief Executive Officer for the year ending 31 December 2024. This statement will be reviewed and updated as appropriate on an annual basis.
