Whistleblowing Solution

Our whistleblowing service shields your business from reputational damage and other risks and creates a safe space for employees to raise concerns.


Creating a safe space to speak up

Encouraging your people to speak up against wrongdoing is vital for tackling issues such as fraud, corruption and unethical behaviour.

Raising such serious matters can feel unnerving and worrying, but an anonymous system can help encourage your employees to feel safe in coming forward with important information. With whistlebox in your business, your people can report their concerns whilst feeling safe through a 24/7 reporting line and web form.

What is whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is ‘making a disclosure in the public interest’ and relates to suspected danger or illegal actions that affect your staff or members of the public. The disclosure could be about the wrongful conduct of an employer, a colleague, a client or any third-party person or organisation.

Some examples of whistleblowing include:

  • A company or staff member is breaking the law
  • A belief that someone is covering up wrongdoing
  • A criminal offence or miscarriage of justice is being committed, such as bribery, fraud, corruption or money laundering
  • Someone’s health and safety is in danger
  • Potential risk or actual damage to the environment
  • Deficiencies in the care of vulnerable people

What is not a whistleblowing incident?

Personal grievances (such as bullying, harassment, and discrimination) are not covered by whistleblowing law. However, these can be reported under your company’s grievance policy or other HR policies.

Protecting whistleblowers

Although whistleblowing can raise some challenging situations, it could be integral to the success of your business – helping you to combat fraud, avoid reputational damage and prevent issues from escalating.

Your employees should feel confident in voicing their concerns without fear of judgement. Anyone ‘blowing the whistle’ at work is protected by the law and should not be treated unfairly or lose their job as a result of raising concerns. If they are dismissed or feel victimised, they could bring an unfair dismissal claim against you.
