MMR Research Worldwide is a global provider of market research services with offices in Oxford, London, New York, Shanghai, Singapore, Sao Paulo, Durban, Mumbai and Cali.
We have 306 employees worldwide and we are headquartered in the UK. Our supply chain consists of suppliers of data (fieldwork, panel providers), logistics, consultancy, translation services and office supplies.
MMR Research Worldwide is committed to delivering high standards of corporate governance and a key element of this is managing the Company in a socially responsible way. The Company aims to employ the highest ethical and professional standards and always to comply with all local laws and regulations applicable to our business; it follows that MMR Research Worldwide is absolutely committed to preventing slavery and human trafficking in its corporate activities and its supply chains. This commitment is emphasised in our employee training programmes and company policies. MMR Research Worldwide also expects the same high standards which we set for ourselves from those parties with whom we engage, such as our suppliers and customers.
Due to the nature of our business and our approach to governance, we assess that there is very low risk of slavery and human trafficking in our business and supply chains. However, we aim to periodically review the effectiveness of the relevant policies and procedures that we have in place. We do not have key performance indicators in relation to slavery or human trafficking as any instance would be expected to be a breach of law, our supplier standards and/or our company policies.
