Modern Slavery Act



We, at Talon, want to ensure that we do our part to contribute to a kinder, fairer and just planet. This policy outlines our commitment to implementing and enforcing effective systems and controls to ensure modern slavery is not taking place in our own business. We have an expectation of the partners within our supply chains to ensure that they do the same and Talon will not knowingly engage with any person or organisation suspected of being involved in modern slavery or human trafficking in any form.


Talon is an independent specialist media agency operating in the out-of-home advertising sector.  We work with a variety of partners such as advertisers, advertising agencies and media owners to deliver industry leading advertising campaigns across a range of formats. We have offices in London, New York, Dublin as well as a number of other international locations from where we provide services across international markets.


Talon’s values of human, bold and smart demonstrate our respect for human rights and the dignity of people.

We continuously take steps to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in our organisation or in our supply chain and we use our People Handbook and training modules to remind everyone of our approach to modern slavery. Whilst Talon provides services and does not itself produce or manufacture goods, we recognise that modern slavery is everybody’s responsibility.


Whilst we cannot control the actions of other businesses, we have established strong, long-term relationships across our entire supply chain and expect our partners who work with us to have appropriate anti-slavery and human trafficking policies and processes in place.

We understand that modern slavery is not a static issue and therefore we are committed to continuing our efforts to raise awareness of the impact of slavery.


Talon has clear policies and practices in place which demonstrate our commitment to help protect individuals from exploitation. Our People Handbook includes policies outlining our stance on Human Rights, Anti-Bribery, Whistleblowing and our Business Conduct Standards.


Upon joining Talon employees will be required to complete mandatory Modern Slavery training within the first 3 months of their employment. Existing employees will be required to complete this training on an annual basis. Employees will be notified of any changes to this policy.

SINCE WE LAST REVIEWED our Modern Slavery Act statement:

In line with our legal obligations, we ensure our website contains the latest copy of our Modern Slavery Act statement. In addition to this, we review our People Handbook and the Handbook for Contractors regularly to ensure compliance with requirements set out in the Modern Slavery Act 2015. To ensure our staff are effectively trained and are able to identify any form of modern slavery and human trafficking and help combat it, we regularly review our training programme and look to bolster our offering at every opportunity, be that formally or informally.

This statement is published in accordance with the Modern Slavery act 2015 for the year ended 31 December 2023 and will be reviewed by the Board of Directors and updated on an annual basis. This statement is approved by the Board of Directors and signed by Eric Newnham, Group CEO.
