Whistleblowers who have the courage to report wrongdoing often face discrimination or other negative consequences as a result. The EU Whistleblowing Directive entered into force on 16 December 2019, with the law being effective as of December 2021. In the future, any business with over 50 employees must provide secure and effective internal reporting channels. Companies who don’t comply with this new law will risk significant fines and the corresponding reputational damage.
Whistleblowers are vital for combatting fraud and misconduct. Implementing a secure whistleblowing solution promotes transparent and trusting corporate culture, which in turn facilitates clear and honest communication amongst your employees. This means you can deal with issues before they become public and result in financial and/or reputational damage.
Giving your employees, freelancers, suppliers and business partners a secure channel to report abuses of power protects their identity and makes them more likely to speak up. Our solution uses encryption to guarantee that the whistleblower’s anonymity cannot be traced by technical means.
