The Importance of Whistleblowing

The Importance of Whistleblowing

Christian Hunt

25 years: Behavioural science & compliance

Evidence of the term ‘whistleblowing’ and the modern connotations it has today can be found as early as the 1500s in England. Encouraging openness and willingness to ‘blow the whistle’ within companies is now a key component of a healthy firm and ensures customers are treated fairly. If employees are encouraged to be open, then they can prevent incidents from happening and bad behaviour from snowballing. It is important that senior managers cease viewing whistleblowing as something negative, but rather something that can improve business performance and reduce external risk.
