TIL: UK gov requires certain orgs to disclose efforts to prevent slavery and human trafficking from supply chain
New Relic’s suppliers and partners are predominantly based in the United States and Europe and include the likes of Amazon Inc., Google Inc., Salesforce.com Inc., and Microsoft Corporation, each of which have stated codes of conduct and ethics. However, a component of New Relic’s growth strategy involves the further expansion of its operations and customer adoption internationally. Operating in international markets requires significant resources and management attention and subjects New Relic to regulatory, economic, and political risks that are different from those in the United States - e.g., the Modern Slavery Act 2015, which has come to the fore due to New Relic’s involvement in the UK. New Relic regularly keeps up to date with changing legislation and keeps its employees informed through appropriate training and updates.
