If there has been unethical behavior in your workplace, who does your employee call? Ethics and whistleblower hotlines are increasingly in demand at companies where management wants to be proactive about employee safety.
In the 2018 Global Business Ethics Survey™, 53% of employee respondents in the United States personally experienced retaliation for reporting workplace misconduct. The good news is that reports of misconduct rise 94% when top management verbally promotes workplace integrity.
The best managers want to provide a voice to their employees. Aside from providing a place to turn for your employees, ethics hotlines also ensure that you know what issues are occurring in your organization so you can promptly address them.
So, what should you consider when developing an ethics hotline?
