While whistleblowing management is not a recent topic and retaliation is arguably a huge global concern, it is now a legal imposition that organizations (private, public or from the social sector) with 50 or more workers create, review or enforce its internal whistleblowing channels and ensure that whistleblowers do not retaliate. The provisions regulated in the law extend to other legislative matters, such as the recent General Regulation for the Prevention of Corruption.
But ensuring effective management of complaints is not enough. The creation of ethical organizational cultures where all stakeholders (internal or external) feel safe and confident to flag or report illegal or unethical conduct is an unavoidable priority, and one of the contributions companies make to the creation of institutions, markets and societies fairer and more sustainable.
With a holistic approach, this programme helps participants respond to aspects of compliance, namely through Law 93/2021 and the General Regulation for the Prevention of Corruption, with a view to creating legally framed environments conducive to the development of an ethical climate and culture in organizations.
