Changing attitudes and more stringent legislation increase the demand for WhistleB’s Services

Dela

Since the beginning of the year, whistleblowers in Sweden who sound the alarm about serious misconduct have been protected against reprisals such as dismissal or ostracism. This has increased the number of alarms received by company boards and management. #Metoo has also clearly demonstrated the need for anonymous communication channels.

“Employees who report abuse should not have to suffer reprisals. Secure solutions are important. External services, initially telephone-based hotlines, became popular after a series of highly public scandals in the USA, where listed companies have been obliged to have a whistleblowing system in place since 2002. These types of systems are now common in Sweden as well. And interest has increased since the start of the #Metoo movement”, says Karin Henriksson co-founder of WhistleB.

“Companies, investors and organisations are raising this issue internally, and seeing the need to implement a secure function that allows for anonymous alerts and dialogue regarding harassment. We are also seeing a growing pressure from investors”, Karin Henriksson continues.

“It is now important to maintain the highest level of security. Companies must never forget to protect sensitive information, or an individual identified in a report. And we have good legislation, in the shape of the GDPR, to guide us. With secure tools and legal compliance companies can work correctly and efficiently and reduce significant business risks”, concludes Karin Henriksson.
