All publicly traded companies are required to have a process that employees can use to report occupational misconduct—i.e., the whistleblower program. How do you know if your company has an effective program? What do you do to build awareness across the company? What department is best equipped to manage the whistleblower hotline? Does your program leverage social media? What steps can you take to mitigate the fear of retaliation and encourage employees to report misconduct?

Our panel of experts will provide insights into how leading organizations have successfully integrated the whistleblower hotline into the corporate culture. They will provide actionable recommendations that all companies can use to retool their existing programs. You will also learn how to address one of the major impediments to effective whistleblower programs: reluctance of employees to come forward because of the real or perceived fear of retaliation. Retaliation can take many forms—verbal abuse, physical threats, demotions—all of which can undermine an otherwise strong ethical culture.

We encourage all of the key players in the financial reporting supply chain—audit committee members, financial executives, internal auditors, and external auditors—as well as compliance professionals, to register for this informative program.

Learning Objectives: Provide perspective on how leading companies have successfully integrated the whistleblower hotline into the corporate culture, actionable recommendations that all companies can use to retool their existing programs, and how to address one of the major impediments to effective whistleblower programs: reluctance of employees to come forward because of the real or perceived fear of retaliation.
