Whistleblowing means that an employee or a third party informs management about dishonest actions within the enterprise. A formal whistleblowing function can help at an early stage to prevent risks and can also have a deterrent effect, as it shows that the management prioritises the issue and does not tolerate improprieties in the organisation.
We function as an external recipient of whistleblowing matters for our clients. This guarantees anonymity for the source and helps to create trust in the service. You will also get a quality assured handling and follow-up of any issues that arise, including a report to the board and advice concerning employment law, anti-bribery legislation etc.
We can help you all the way - to draft and implement a code of conduct suitable to your business and to establish and staff a whistleblowing function. We also provide training on the topic.
