Good employers realise that it is better to uncover problems early and fix them before they become a disaster. A 2016 survey found that most employers expressed support of whistle blowers but that most workplaces lacked awareness of the requirements of the Protected Disclosures Act commonly referred to as whistle blower protection. And the recent EU Directive will require companies of more than 50 employees to have policies and processes for the reporting and investigation of concerns and to ensure there is no retaliation towards any worker for raising a concern.
Do you have an fit-for-purpose whistle blowing policy in your organisation? Do your employees know where to go with disclosures? Do they understand their options? Do managers in your organisation know how to act on receipt of reports? Do people in your workplace understand that there must be no retaliation against whistle blowers or anyone connected to them?
We offer both advice & training and can help you introduce whistle blowing policies and processes that are effective and manageable, that fit your company culture and that allow you to deal effectively with potential problems before they become disasters.
