Build a healthy, speak-up culture within your organisation

Inevitably, businesses can expect to manage a sensitive internal issue which will require impartial, expert support to resolve. 

Why not be on the front foot? Proactively build a robust speak-up culture to enhance the performance of your business. 

A speak-up culture is a healthy, supportive environment where team members feel free to share their ideas, opinions and concerns, without fear of retaliation or penalty. It helps employees feel safe and their voices heard.

Employees’ disclosures can help to shape culture, influence positive change, and reduce the risk of regulatory fines, legal action, reputational damage, loss of customers or suppliers, and loss of talent.

PKF Integrity offers a comprehensive whistleblower and disclosure management service, supported by expert investigators, who are available 24/7. We invite you to receive a demonstration of our whistleblower platform. We can help to protect your people and your business.

Whistleblower hotline service

Our industry-leading whistleblower hotline is a channel that allows employees to confidentially alert your organisation about suspicions of misconduct. It is an important tool for reducing risks and building trust as it enables managers to detect and act on possible misconduct at an early stage. 

Our hotline can be accessed online or by telephone. It is staffed by our experienced investigators, who are available 24/7, 365 days a year, to provide expert triage and investigation support. 

The whistleblower can report their concern in confidence (or anonymously), knowing that it will be handled efficiently, professionally, and to strict ethical standards.

Applying leading-edge technology to make the interaction as comfortable and efficient as possible

Our deep experience in whistleblowing and complaints management has resulted in the co-design of a state-of-the-art Disclosure Management System, with technology developed by Wisetech Global.

Our platform provides functionality to assist your organisation in effectively managing business conduct complaints and protected disclosures, including online reporting tool for disclosures, automated complaint categorisation, a secure online communications platform for whistleblowers and senior staff to discuss disclosures without compromising confidentiality, secure document uploads, access and permission options for staff with different organisational responsibilities, intuitive web-based management reporting dashboard reporting and data analytics capability, and self-service administration.

Implement a robust whistleblower policy framework

In addition to our whistleblower hotline service and online platform, we assist organisations to develop practical and effective whistleblower policy frameworks that comply with whistleblowing legislation under the Corporations Act and Public Interest Disclosure Act.

Where required, PKF can also provide triage services that provide pragmatic, tailored advice on responding to conduct disclosed by a whistleblower. This advice takes into account applicable legislation and organisational policy requirements.

Communication and training is fundamental to the success of any organisational initiative, including complaints management and whistleblowing. With this in mind, we provide 'eligible recipient' training sessions, so that stakeholders better understand their roles and the complaint management system.
