WHISTLE BLOWERS PTY LTD IS THE PREFERRED PROVIDER OF A SAFE REPORTING WHISTLE BLOWING SERVICE BY EMPLOYERS WHO VALUE OUR INDEPENDENCE AND REPUTATION FOR MAINTAINING WORLD-CLASS ETHICS HOTLINE SERVICE STANDARDS

Since our launch in 2000, Whistle Blowers has grown into the largest independent ethics hotline provider in Sub-Saharan Africa, now serving our clients in over 35 countries and on six of the world’s continents. Here’s why!

A PROUD TRACK RECORD AS AN INDEPENDENT, SPECIALIST HOTLINE PROVIDER SINCE

2000

Our extensive private and public sector
client list spans the full spectrum of economic endeavour.

Our information agents are trained to understand the highly varied workplace environments in which unethical conduct affecting our diverse clients can take place.

As an independent, specialist service provider you and your stakeholders can enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing that our only focus is the provision of a superior ethics hotline service: there is no risk that the Whistle Blowers service, integrity or reputation will be compromised by any actual or perceived competing obligations.

Our 24/7/365 live information centre that takes calls in 16 languages is complemented by a full suite of reporting channels to provide whistle blowers with ease of contact using their preferred method.

Skilled information agents elicit valuable information from direct callers and are trained to screen for hoax reporting.

Direct conversations can be had at no or little cost to the caller using our tollfree and SMS Please Call Me services. Reports can also be made using our online, web-based reporting system, by email, post, fax or by using the Whistle Blowers hotline app. See our various reporting channels for yourself in this 170 second video.

MULTI-CHANNEL REPORTING

ALL WHO REPORT WRONGDOING VIA OUR ETHICS HOTLINE HAVE

ANONYMITY
ASSURED

Whichever way you look at it, the people you want to provide information of wrongdoing affecting your organisation have to have the maximum possible confidence that their identities will never be revealed against their wishes.

As a focused, independent expert provider with no competing interests, potential reporters of wrongdoing are understandably better assured of their anonymity than if reporting to a facility that is managed on an in-house basis or by a provider who offers multiple services to you.

When a call is placed to your dedicated hotline number and is answered by a Whistle Blowers information agent, they are not reaching a routine call centre with entry-level operators asking scraped questions.

Instead, they will reach an information agent who has been rigorously trained by professional, experienced investigators in the use of specialist interviewing techniques. The caller is quickly put at ease and then assisted in providing all the information they are able to share about the matter that they are reporting, including that which they may not have known would be important to include in the report. Regular performance monitoring and skills development ensures our agents are best in class.

Data Systems and Security

We invest in and maintain information systems that ensure uninterrupted access to and secure storage of data.

Our on and off-site back-up procedures and data encryption methods are of a level not easily matched by an in-house ethics hotline system.

Our data management practices are continually reviewed for compliance with the data processing and privacy requirements of applicable legislation relating to personal information.

Your designated recipients receive anonymised and high-quality written reports arising from every contact made with us concerning your organisation within 24 hours.

If an incident in progress needs to be brought to your attention immediately, emergency reports are made telephonically, enabling you to take swift action.

Written reports are subjected to a stringent accuracy and anonymisation quality control process, ensuring that you get the maximum possible information without compromising the identity of your whistle blower.
