Why Read This Report

Whistleblowers are an essential safety valve in ethical corporate culture. They provide a mechanism for healthy corporate governance by exposing fraud and corruption and, more recently, revealing abusive practices, sexual harassment, discrimination, and privacy issues. But today, they're imperiled by workplace digitalization that shreds their anonymity and evolving regulations that fall short of legal protection from retaliation. This report outlines steps that risk pros must take to safeguard whistleblowers.
