Our Benchmark has been developed to help organisations measure effective whistleblowing arrangements.
Whether you are designing a whistleblowing policy and accompanying procedures or evaluating more established arrangements, our newly developed Benchmark - the first of its kind - has been designed to assist your organisation, with practical steps, telling you what you should be doing, and when.
Why our Benchmark is different - and will work for you:
What makes our Benchmark unique is its sheer depth and scope - there is much more to it than 'just numbers.' We believe focusing on numbers alone will not tell you how whistleblowing is working in your organisation.
The Benchmark has three core elements:
• Governance: Accountability, Written Policy & Procedures, Review & Reporting
• Engagement: Communications & Training
• Operations: Support & Protection, Recording & Investigations,
Resolution & Feedback
Within each core element there are a series of best practice standards to aim for.
On completion of the Benchmark, you will receive an in-depth report indicating how you have performed against similar organisations, in terms of sector, company size or country of operation. Strengths and weaknesses in your arrangements will be identified with recommendations on how to improve, which will be invaluable when reporting to your board, audit or regulatory body.
