The Whistleblowing Guide: Speak-up Arrangements, Challenges and Best Practices
Choose the best speak-up arrangements for your organisation
The last five years have seen dramatic and fundamental changes in whistleblower procedures for organisations. Prompted by a spate of important public disclosures, organizations are now mandated by law to implement effective arrangements enabling employees to speak up about perceived wrongdoing. Currently few resources exist to help with this.
To help fill the gap, The Whistleblowing Guide examines the opportunities and challenges associated with different types of whistleblowing and speak-up arrangements, making recommendations based on best practices you can trust.
- Identifies the major organisational, structural and cultural obstacles to speaking up through speak-up arrangements
- Proposes effective whistleblowing and speak-up arrangements
- Explains the specific policy and legislation requirements that can promote or impede the effective implementation of speak-up arrangements, and how these can be translated into commercial and public organizations across sectors and cultures
- Makes a clear distinction between internal and external reporting arrangements
The Whistleblowing Guide offers conceptual clarification about these key issues, including a focus on internal and external speak-up procedures, organisational response and communication, impartiality and trust.
