We are proud to announce that, for the sixth consecutive year, Whistle Blowers (Pty) Ltd received EthicsSA certifications by the Ethics Institute of South Africa! We are continuously working on strengthening our systems and procedures, ensuring quality reports, ongoing communication and a professional service.
EthicsSA has certified Whistle Blowers (Pty) Ltd as meeting the External Whistle-blowing Hotline Service Provider Standard EO1.1.1. This is the sixth year that they have received the certification.
The EO1.1.1 is a best-practice set of guidelines or norms for the professional and ethical conduct of external whistle-blowing hotline service providers, operating their own centres or facilities.
The EO1.1.1 is grounded in, and informed by, the principles of integrity, efficiency, independence, protection and availability. Whistle Blowers (Pty) Ltd’s whistle-blowing line facility was audited and evaluated against their compliance to these professional service standards and principles in February 2016 and was found to be fully compliant.
Certification is valid for one year, where after we would re-assess compliance to the industry standard.
Members are advised to utilise the services of certified external whistle-blowing hotline service providers to ensure professional service delivery supported by ethical principles.
