Whistleblowing framework

GoodCorporation's Whistleblowing Framework contains a set of management practices to help organisations ensure that any concern can be raised without fear. The two-page framework can be used to design, embed or evaluate whistleblowing systems and speak-up culture.

Areas covered by the framework

  • Leadership: senior management leads by example, ensuring that effective policies and systems are in place and an open-door culture is in operation.
  • Culture and awareness: the organisation ensures that employees are trained and all stakeholders are aware of the speak-up systems and processes.
  • Grievance policy: the organisation implements an effective grievance policy and that staff understand the difference between personal grievances and serious operational concerns.
  • Whistleblowing policy and management: the organisation is committed to the development and implementation of an effective whistleblowing system that is understood by all stakeholders and supported by an open-door culture.
  • Whistleblowing investigations: the organisation operates a fair and impartial process for investigating concerns raised through the speak-up system.
  • Avoidance of detriment: steps are taken to ensure that whistleblowers do not suffer any reprisal or recrimination.
  • Feedback, monitoring and independent: the organisation has effective internal and external monitoring and review systems in place to show that the system is working.
