Why Attend?

These days, an effective whistleblower hotline represents a crucial element of any public or private organisation’s Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) programme. Indeed, it is often one of the first compliance initiatives that organisations put in place, and for good reason. As part of their hotline programme, most organisations implement a ‘no retaliation’ policy – but what are the realities of retaliation, and what can organisations really do to monitor, manage and minimise retaliation? 

In this interactive Compliance Tech Talk hosted by Convercent, we are bringing together a group of compliance directors and General Counsels for a roundtable event – under the Chatham House rule – to discuss such key issues as:

  • How hotlines help identify, prioritise and enable a response to emerging risks
  • What are the best practices for creating and maintaining effective hotlines
  • How contributing factors, multiple allegations and enhanced reporting capabilities provide meaningful insight into employee behaviour 
  • What are the realities of retaliation?
