Whistleblowing Scanner



Sorry, an error occurred.

This form is not available.

Small and medium organisations can now assess their existing whistleblowing framework using our Whistleblowing Scanner.

This secure, instant assessment can be completed in less than an hour*, with a board ready report sent directly to your inbox.

*To complete the assessment promptly, we recommend gathering the evidence, such as your organisation’s whistleblowing policy and any other related policies, beforehand.

What is the Whistleblowing Scanner?

Our Whistleblowing Scanner is a check up of the whistleblowing arrangements in your small or medium sized organisation that is entirely completed online. It has been developed by the UK’s leading independent whistleblowing charity Protect. It is aimed at organisations with 50 – 250 employees operating across all sectors in the UK, EU and internationally**.

It’s the fastest, most affordable and secure way to learn how well prepared your organisation is to encourage, support and protect your employees who may wish to speak up about any wrongdoing they might have witnessed.

The assessment can be completed in your own time, all at once or in segments. By asking you questions about the governance, policies and practice as well as staff engagement, it examines your organisation’s current whistleblowing culture. After the self-assessment is submitted, a report with a score based on your whistleblowing set up is sent to your email along with initial recommendations on the next steps and ways to improve.

** Please note this is a self-assessment exercise, based on Protect’s years of experience, with questions that align to areas of the EU Whistleblowing Directive. It is not a compliance exercise, and completing the exercise does not mean you are compliant with any legislation.  

Why and when should you use the Whistleblowing Scanner?

  • If your organisation has more than 50 but fewer than 250 employees
  • If you want to improve or are not sure where to start when creating a positive speak up culture in your organisation
  • If you are a Head of HR, Head of Compliance or in charge of a Legal Department and require a report with insight into your organisation’s whistleblowing culture


How can the Whistleblowing Scanner help my organisation?

The Whistleblowing Scanner helps organisations in the following ways:

  • It helps to establish whether your existing speak up framework meets current best practice
  • It acts as a gap analysis and helps to map out how to set up an effective whistleblowing culture
  • It enables you to align with the EU Whistleblowing Directive requirements which is a legal requirement not just for EU based enterprises, but also for UK based organisations doing business in the EU. Even if you are not doing business with the EU, the Directive goes further than the UK legislation and can be seen as best practice


Small Businesses. Mighty Impact.

The Whistleblowing Scanner empowers small businesses (under 250 employees) to strengthen their whistleblowing practices and enhance workplace transparency effectively.

I honestly think its excellent – it gave me the material and evidence I need to leverage real change. I wouldn’t hesitate on running this at least once a year to ensure we are on the right path with our journey.
