In this webinar sponsored by EY, we look at how to measure the effectiveness of Whistleblowing systems. Measuring the effectiveness of Whistleblowing presents Heads of Investigations, Boards of Directors, the Whistleblowing Champion and the Audit committee – who are the recipients of Management Information – an array of data points.
This webinar will consider the key data points, and provide both internal and external views on how you accurately assess and then present this information
As a framework for the discussion, we will cover System Administration, Investigation Competency and Process, Outcome Assurance and Remediation.
