True value for business operations
Implemented in the right way, whistleblowing can support your risk management processes and help save time and money. And lower your stress levels.
Unethical or illegal action may cause considerable damage both directly and indirectly. Timely case management prevents further damage.
ACFE (Association of Certified Fraud Examiners) 2020 Global study on occupational fraud and abuse says whistleblowing is typically (43%) the way wrongdoing is detected.
First Whistle is user friendly for the whistleblower to increase the likelihood that it is you and not the media who gets to hear it first.
It is easy to recognise early signals after the fact. Those moments are the lost opportunities when unwanted events could still have been avoided. Often beforehand those signals feel insignificant or there is the illusion that there is still time to fix things.
Make sure everyone in your organisation is familiar with your code of conduct and they know where to turn when boundaries are crossed. Management should be trained to welcome ethical discussions so they can hear what is simmering under the surface. Ethical organisational culture is the strongest means to ensure operations steer clear of unwanted business risks and focus on building sustainable success.
