Whistleblowing Friendly

by msecadm4921

Asthma UK has won the Great Place to Work Award for Whistleblowing Friendly Culture 2005.

This award, sponsored by public body Public Concern at Work, emphasises the importance of whistleblowing as a governance tool, and the role employees can play in risk management.

In selecting the winner, Great Place to Work reports that it looked for the organisation that could best demonstrate that they have an open and accountable culture supported by a whistleblowing policy.

The top three candidates for this award each deserve congratulations, PCAW adds, for having over 90pc of its staff agree that if they witnessed wrongdoing at work they could raise the issue and be confident it would be addressed.

Each year the Great Place to Work Institute publishes a list of the best workplaces in the UK. The aim of the list is to highlight and encourage best practice in the workplace through positive recognition. Organisations that commit themselves to becoming great workplaces also see benefits to their business and people. In addition, the List is published in a Financial Times Best Workplaces Special Report.

In 2004, the Special Award for Whistleblowing Friendly Culture was won by Proctor & Gamble.
