Companies should actively encourage employees to blow the whistle.

 

Whistle-blowing employees have considerable legal protection – the Labour Relations Act and Protected Disclosure Act, and against harassment by the Companies Act.

 

Companies should develop an effective whistle-blowing programme. It helps your business create a culture of transparency.

 

Employees who work in companies that encourage information sharing are far more engaged, productive, driven, more connected to the company’s vision.

 

A whistle-blowing programme is of inordinate value to the business.
