A whistleblower policy is an essential document for organizations in every field and industry. First, it protects employees from retaliation and other harm, ensuring you are compliant with relevant whistleblower protection laws.
In addition, a strong policy encourages employees to speak up when they see an issue. Faster, more accurate reporting means you can address issues before they escalate or even start. When employees feel safe reporting internally, you also avoid potential PR and compliance disasters that come from sharing information on social media or with external bodies.
