Fraud, theft, ethics concerns – these are issues that every organization must be prepared to deal with. It’s imperative that employees, shareholders, customers, and other stakeholders have a means of reporting conduct that may be placing you at risk. Confidential and secure, our anonymous ethics hotline service is a reliable means of collecting and transmitting sensitive information.
Our fraud and ethics hotline can bring companies into compliance with the whistleblower protection provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002 by establishing a confidential solution for receiving and retaining complaints.
In instances of illegal or improper conduct, established communication channels are often ineffective. Employees may feel uncomfortable lodging internal complaints even when there are policies in place to protect them.
Instead of allowing potentially damaging situations to go undisclosed, our fraud and ethics hotline encourages individuals to report information confidentially and without the threat of retaliation.
With our anonymous tip line in place, you can rest assured that all reports will be handled properly from the start, reaching only the designated personnel and containing the information needed to take action.
Establishing an anonymous fraud hotline does more than protect your organization from the damaging effects of misconduct, it helps promote a culture of integrity and encourage honest behavior.
By informing stakeholders how the hotline is to be used and why, you demonstrate how seriously you take your code of conduct and that you have a policy in place for investigating potential infractions.
