Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement for 2021

Cogendo provides an online employee performance management Software as a Service (SaaS).   This is our Modern Slavery statement, published pursuant to Section 54(1), Part 6 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, for 2022.    We are committed to upholding human rights, including ensuring no-one in our direct operations or extended supply chain or customer base is subjected to modern slavery and human trafficking. Our focus over this year year has been to continue developing the right policies, processes and internal capability to understand and manage future risks as the business evolves.

Our business

Cogendo Limited is a UK based limited liability company, 100% owned by its two founders.


Our supply chains

Our supply chain network is relatively small, relying largely on other SaaS companies to provide internal tools and network infrastructure.


Our customers

Our customer base spans a multitude of sectors in several countries.


Our policies and processes

Cogendo is committed to providing an environment where employees can flourish, perform, and achieve. We have a variety of supporting documentation to guide employees on how to work in an honest and ethical manner, along with providing appropriate channels to give the confidence to report any suspected unethical conduct in Cogendo, by operating an independent whistle-blowing helpline.
The policies that underpin this are:

  • HR Policy
  • Employee Handbook
  • Supplier Selection Policy


Our policies are reviewed at least annually as part of our ISO27001 certification. All our business partners are expected to act in accordance with these principles and values.


Training and awareness raising

In the last year, all employees have been required to confirm they have read and understood our core compliance policies. Specific anti-slavery and human trafficking training for all relevant Cogendo staff has also been completed to better enable screening processes and the identification of risk.
