Whistle-blowing - Essential Knowledge

Training course carries 5 hours CPD points 

Courses take place in:



Whistle-blowing is when someone - often an employee - reports suspected wrongdoing in their workplace, in the interest of either the organisation or the public. That suspected wrongdoing could involve something illegal, fraudulent, dangerous, unsafe, discriminatory, unfair or environmentally damaging.

Whistle-blowing is rarely out of the news - and many companies and organisations have whistle-blowing facilities, albeit of varying types. However, implementing an effective whistle-blower facility brings with it a myriad of practical challenges - and opportunities. Most organisations, for example, will always be concerned about volumes of calls - both too high and too low - and whether to extend their whistle-blower facilities to include their vendors and suppliers. The data protection and international challenges of whistle-blower hotlines also represent key and crucial issues.

Irrespective of what stage you have reached with the implementation and development of a whistle-blower facility, this invaluable training session provides everything that you need to implement and manage a genuinely effective whistle-blower hotline. The session includes:

  • the psychology of whistle-blowing
  • types of whistle-blowing facility - help lines and hotlines
  • practical whistle-blowing - the key challenges
  • data protection – how to ensure data protection compliance whilst maintaining an effective whistle-blowing facility
  • international whistle-blowing issues
  • the ‘Mother Ship’ Syndrome, and how to handle it
  • communications - direct, indirect and subliminal
  • vendors and suppliers
  • case management and reporting channels
