Whistleblowing course for managerial level. Good governance in any organisation involves demonstrating accountability and fostering a “speak up” culture. A new ISO standard for whistleblowing has just been published to address the importance of having a secure and effective way that employees can report concerns about wrongdoing. ISO 37002:2021 Whistleblowing Management Systems – Guidelines – guide implementing, managing, evaluating, maintaining and improving a robust and effective management system for whistleblowing. It is non-sector-specific and can be used by organisations of all sizes, including SMEs and those with international operations.

Following the three principles of trust, impartiality and protection, the standard covers the identification and reporting of such concerns and how they are assessed and addressed. Its use will minimise or prevent potential losses and ensure compliance with organisational policies and legal and social obligations. Suppose a corporation has its whistleblowing policy positioned in place, the clear and secure reporting channel established within its compound.

In that case, a robust whistleblowing policy will decline the chances of wrongdoing or misconduct significantly. This is because all wrongdoings or misconducts can be quickly revealed and exposed under such a policy. The whistleblower will receive legal protection to avoid any detrimental action, and it could assure the most crucial sound governance and safeguard all shareholders interests.

With the current momentum for whistleblowing and case management triggered by whistleblower cases in the media, speak-up programs have steadily moved to the centre of businesses. The best practice guides like ISO 37002 and the new EU Whistleblowing Directive can help companies who are liable to such whistleblower regulations identify the steps needed to build an adequate and sound whistleblower program.

Yet what’s important to note is that the actual establishment of a hotline or setting up a best practice process for whistleblower reports is not the end goal. This is, of course, not to undermine the value of safeguards implemented to protect whistleblowers from retaliation and the accessibility to reporting, but a reminder that the overarching goal of such programs is strengthening the culture of compliance. So, one might ask; once the program has been deployed, how can we know that it’s working toward that higher goal of building an ethical culture?
