Whistleblowing Training Course

Whistleblowing is the process by which employees can report suspected or actual improper conduct.

It is done in confidence or anonymously, which is vital if you feel unsafe or unable to report such behaviour to management, or if no action was taken previously.

Blowing the whistle about internal and external malpractices is vital for the functioning and survival of companies.

Our Whistleblowing Training Course helps your employees understand when, how and to whom they can report misconduct and how they will be protected.
