This is Symplicity’s statement issued under the Modern Slavery Act. It outlines the steps we have taken as a business to identify and prevent slavery and human trafficking in our own operations and supply chains. We are committed to improving our practices to combat slavery and human trafficking.


Symplicity is the global leader in student careers and services platforms for students and higher education institutions. Symplicity is headquartered in Arlington, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. with offices in Brazil, Australia, and Canada.

Supply Chains

Symplicity has direct relationships with higher education institutions across the globe in which we provide applications to support their students. Our supply chains include cloud service providers like Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure, which our applications are hosted on.

Symplicity Statement on Slavery and Human Trafficking

Symplicity is committed to ensuring that there is no modern slavery or human trafficking in our supply chains or in any part of our business. Our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Statement reflects our commitment to acting ethically and with integrity in our business relationships and to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure slavery and human trafficking are not taking place in our business and in our supply chains. The Symplicity Code of Conduct provides a system for our employees to escalate ethics issues, including slavery and human trafficking issues and breaches of our Ethics Policies. Both policies are reviewed annually. There have been no breaches or suspected breaches of our Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy at the time of this initial publication.

Due Diligence Processes for Slavery and Human Trafficking

As part of our initiative to identify, monitor, and mitigate against industry risk, business transaction risk, and risk in the countries in which we operate, Symplicity monitors our business, our partners,  and our supply chains to:

  • Identify inappropriate employment practices
  • Identify, assess, and monitor other potential risk areas
  • Mitigate the risk of slavery and human trafficking occurring
  • Protect whistleblowers
  • Investigate reports of Modern Slavery.
  • Ensure proper Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking Training is administered.

Supplier Adherence to Symplicity Values and Ethics

Symplicity has zero tolerance for slavery and human trafficking. To ensure all those in our supply chain and contractors comply with our values we operate in line with principles of responsible sourcing, including paying employees at the prevailing minimum wage applicable within their relevant country of operations.

Next Steps

  • Raise awareness of the Anti-Slavery and Human Trafficking Policy with our employees and vendors
  • Additional training for employees as necessary
