Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
The City of Alexandria has selected Ethical Advocate to provide the city’s ethics hotline as part of a larger ethics program that has recently been launched. The initiative includes a third party anonymous hotline to report suspicious activity and the provision of ethics awareness trainings. The hotline will be available 24 hours a day, every day of the year.
Ethical Advocate is a leading provider of anonymous and confidential incident reporting solutions, providing a mechanism for the confidential, anonymous submission by employees for concerns regarding questionable financial or ethics matters. Ethical Advocate’s systems will allow the City of Alexandria to provide state-of the-art incident reporting mechanisms while allowing its employees and community members maximum anonymity.
The City of Alexandria chose Ethical Advocate because it gives the city the necessary tools to examine the full spectrum of risk and exposures. The city will be rolling out the hotline in the coming weeks and encourages anyone who works for or with the organization to call the hotline once it is launched, if they need to notify the organization of a serious matter but need to remain anonymous.
