ROUNDTABLE - Energy & Utilities sector
Whistleblowing is attracting an increasing focus across industry and is a key channel for individuals to raise concerns within their organisations, and for employers to identify where wrongdoing is taking place. Robust whistleblowing arrangements can mitigate risk by ensuring that employees have access to tools that can help them raise concerns quickly and safely.
Early intervention can help to reduce the impact of issues that could escalate, potentially leading to severe financial and reputational impact. Following almost every major incident that has occurred across industry, it has become clear that employees were aware of the issue at an early stage, but in a large number of cases the concerns were not raised or listened to.
Join us for the first energy and utilities whistleblowing roundtable, where the following key challenges will be discussed:
· Identifying the areas that do fall under whistleblowing (as opposed to grievances)
· Encouraging whistleblowers to come forward with their concerns
· Protecting the whistleblowers within your organisation
· Supporting your representatives who are responsible for whistleblowing internally
· Identifying the appropriate arrangements that are key to enable safe whistleblowing
The session will give you the opportunity to hear case studies, best practice, and engage with peers and representatives responsible for whistleblowing.
Facilitated by whistleblowing charity Public Concern at Work, who for 25 years has been helping both the individual and the employer with managing whistleblowing, ensuring that it works for all.
Please note the session will be conducted under Chatham House rules.
Date & Time: 10 April 2018 - 9:30 – 11:30 (breakfast provided)
