Deloitte Halo – whistleblowing services
Report workplace misconduct
Deloitte’s Whistleblower service is an anonymous and independent digital and integrated whistleblowing service that can help reduce the costs and risks of workplace misconduct.
Legal framework in Europe
In April 2019 the EU has approved a new system to protect and encourage reporting of misconduct and breaches of the law in the EU. Ahead of the new regulation, many EU countries have already implemented their own whistleblower laws (e.g. France, Italy, the UK, Croatia and many more). Those legal frameworks put new obligations on a wide range of firms in the area of whistleblowing and whistleblower protection. In most of the cases, it means that companies with 50+ employees have to have a robust whistleblowing solution. Don’t wait until it’s too late – find your best whistlebowing system and protect your firm and your employees.
Deloitte is a recognised global provider of independent whistleblowing solutions to corporate and public sector entities across the globe. Our goal is to help organisations to minimise workplace misconduct and strengthen governance effectively. Issues such as fraud, bribery and corruption, misconduct, harassment, bullying, unethical behaviour are all risks that have the potential to cause financial and reputational damage to organisations when left undetected. Never a comfortable pursuit, it is of critical importance for organisations to establish safe channels for whistleblowers to step forward and ‘blow-the-whistle’ to expose sensitive issues in a confidential manner.
Deloitte Halo, our digital whistleblowing solution equips organisations with secure and confidential reporting channels layered with advanced security features. Trained Deloitte Analysts will review incidents and prepare reports, and escalate high-risk matters.
To strengthen governance and internal controls, Deloitte also helps organisations to manage regulatory change and adhere to whistleblowing obligations. For the last two decades, Deloitte’s goal is to design a clear, practical and implementable whistleblowing programme that monitors policies and effectiveness of controls, to help organisations see their risks first.
