Protect (formerly known as Public Concern at Work) is constantly striving to find new ways to encourage employees to speak up through training for managers and consultancy for organisations, and now we are very excited to launch a new e-learning programme aimed at employees in local authorities and charities. The e-learning package has been developed in conjunction with international advisory and accountancy firm Mazars and CIPFA Counter Fraud Centre.
The course sets out how to raise and report concerns at work, and aims to clear up ‘grey areas’ around processes, complaints and definitions. With scenario-led content and case studies, employees will learn:
- What whistleblowing is
- How best to blow the whistle/raise concerns
- Where staff can blow the whistle/raise concerns
- What to expect and how their organisation will support them
- Rights and options for support
The new whistleblowing e-learning package empowers employees to do the right thing if they witness wrongdoing at work. Too often we hear from whistleblowers that organisations are not listening. The value of creating an environment where it is both safe and effective for staff to speak up cannot be denied. We hope that this e-learning package will encourage a much needed change in culture and would urge organisations to rise to the challenge of achieving the gold standard in whistleblowing practice.
Visit cipfa.org/services/counter-fraud-centre/whistleblowing-elearning to ensure your employees can gain access to this valuable tool. Packages start from £600 for up to 500 staff.
