Webinar | Best practices on managing and investigating whistleblowing/speak-up reports

Date: Thursday, 17th June
Duration: 60 Minutes (45 minutes webinar presentation + 15 minutes Q&A session)

With the new EU Whistleblowing Directive coming into force this year, it is expected that Corporate Organisations will face a growing number of Ethics reports from all employees. Those reports should be carefully dealt with upon receipt, as recommended by the EU Directive and it is paramount to timely and efficiently address them with the appropriate response components:

  • Communication with the whistleblower
  • Internal investigations
  • A response team
  • A supporting tool and platform…

 

Jean-Jacques Quang, Director at Ethicaline, a Compliance & Investigations firm and Claudio Interdonato, Business Director at EQS Group; will go through the Do’s and Dont’s of an effective investigation triggered by a Whistleblower.

During this practical webinar, our expert panel will provide their thoughts and answers on:

  • How to analyse and manage incoming reports
  • Investigation best practices
  • Example/practical case – step-by-step process of how to verify reports and conduct an investigation.
