One of the primary requirements of the directive is the implementation of internal reporting channels and processes, which the legislation encourages whistleblowers to use and offers access to a range of legal, financial and psychological support when doing so. The directive also extends whistleblower protections to include trainees, volunteers and self-employed workers (in addition to employees).
Provide multiple channels for employees report incidents: By giving multiple ways to report incidents, this increases the chances that these channels will be used and that issues within your organisation will be visible to the relevant teams. These channels can include telephone whistleblowing helpline programme, web intake options, or report forms and whistleblowing software to capture open door conversations
Consistent processes for all reports: Use role and rule-based routing and automated workflows that can systemise and streamline your processes from intake to investigation to case closure.
