What is Whistleblowing?
There have been many high profile events around the World that have raised the profile of whistleblowing. Trading scandals have been exposed in leading Banks, evidence of manipulation of fuel emission have been reported and charities have been investigated for alleged misspent donations and worse wrongdoing. All these issues were publically exposed by whistleblowers.
In response to these embarrassing cases we have recognised the importance of more open and transparent cultures where reporting unethical behaviour is encouraged.
The Benefits for having a Whistleblowing Policy and Procedure
Many organisations have now introduced a clear whistleblowing procedure to reduce the risk of serious concerns being mishandled in any way. With a clear Whistleblowing Policy and Procedure in place, employees will understand what to do if they come across illegal or unethical activity in the workplace and feel encouraged to report this activity.
