Employee reporting on misconduct

What’s new? Escalation and reporting channels

Under the Directive, whistleblowers can report their concerns through:

  • Internal reporting channels: facilitated by the organisation
  • External reporting channels: facilitated by the relevant national authorities or the appropriate EU institutions
  • Public reporting channels: such as going directly to the media, or a public forum such as Twitter

Optimising internal reporting

From both a risk and culture perspective, having prospective whistleblowers use an internal reporting channel is by far the most desirable approach. Not only does this minimise the risk of financial and reputational damage of an incident going public, it also strengthens trust between the employee and employer. 

Vault Platform maximizes the potential of your internal whistleblowing programme to ensure you expose and resolve misconduct internally before reporters and whistleblowers decide to use external channels.

Get to resolution 30% faster than incumbent tools, before incident reporters become frustrated. Most regulatory investigations are into incidents that an employee tried to escalate internally but abandoned after facing too much resistance
