Whistleblowing: When Should You Act?


Price is per online user of this course.

This e-learning course will help you speak up about significant concerns at work. All organisations have a duty to act within the law and ensure they uphold the highest standards of honesty and integrity. But, when there are lapses, it is the people on the front line who need to stand up and be counted if they come across wrongdoings.

Let’s start with a quote from the leading charity, Public Concern at Work:
“As we know from news headlines we all read every day, in our care homes and hospitals, public transport systems and factories, schools, banks and even in Parliament, too often the questions are asked after the damage has been done…we still face the risk of a culture of silence…Whistleblowers are a vital safety net in our society and can prevent and detect damage and disaster. We all need to listen to them.” Source: Public Concern at Work and the University of Greenwich, Whistleblowing: the inside story – a study of the experiences of 1,000 whistleblowers, May 2013.

This short course will give you all you need to have the confidence to speak up about serious concerns at work.
