Speak Up Procedures Seminar:
Challenges and Opportunities of Internal Whistle-Blowing Procedures
Internal speak up procedures are now officially ‘good practice’ in risk management, as well as in ethics and compliance policies. They are increasingly prescribed as good practice in corporate governance models, and are mentioned in regulatory initiatives such as public interest Disclosure Act and the new Bribery Act.
What to do and what not to do when setting up and running a speak-up procedure in your organization? Get expert accounts and advice on compliance management, employment law, whistle-blowing advice, ethics and academic research.
This seminar offers participants insights into:
 Practice and theory of designing
 Managing speak-up procedures.
This will be useful to anyone involved in designing, implementing, or monitoring internal speak-up or whistle-blowing procedures – at any level of management (line management, audit departments, HR, members of boards of directors) and in any kind of organization (business, government, NGO).
