Whistleblowing is an act of an individual, often an employee, that discloses important information about unethical or illegal activities within an organisation.

The use of external whistleblowing systems has been proven to be the best way to report such activities.

Having a whistleblowing policy in place maintains the reputation for an organisation and promotes ethical behaviour.

A whistleblowing policy also protects whistleblowers from retaliation and ensures that reports will get dealt with seamlessly and effectively.
