IBE Launch new Guide: ‘Encouraging a Speak Up Culture’


The Institute of Business Ethics (‘IBE’) have published a new Guide on the Speak up Culture in organisations. The freedom to raise concerns without fear of retaliation is a core component of a supportive ethical business culture – one where employees are confident they will be supported to ‘do the right thing’.

Encouraging staff to raise concerns is just one step along the route to developing an open culture. Listening to those concerns, investigating them and acting upon the information received are essential. If companies do not support their employees in this way, they risk a concern becoming a crisis.

This Good Practice Guide looks at practical ways that organisations can encourage a Speak Up culture by establishing a procedure for employees that gives employees the confidence to raise concerns about anything they find unsafe, unethical or unlawful. It examines the investigation process and looks at some ways which organisations can increase confidence in the process.
