Whistleblowers are proven to be the best source of information on misconduct so it’s critical that we treat them fairly, protect them and ensure they keep coming forward.
Ottawa, ON (PRWEB) May 22, 2014
i-Sight Software has announced that it will offer a free webinar entitled Working With Whistleblowers and Confidential Informants, presented by Tim Reddick, managing director and principal investigator at Desert Thunder Investigations. The webinar will be held on Thursday May 29th at 2pm EDT.
The whistleblower tip is considered to be one of the most valuable sources of information for companies trying to root out misconduct. According to the ACFE’s Report to the Nations, occupational fraud is more likely to be detected by a tip than by any other method and the majority of tips reporting fraud come from internal whistleblowers. To make sure these valuable tips keep coming, it’s important to handle whistleblowers and confidential informants fairly, carefully and legally.
“Dealing with whistleblowers and confidential informants takes some finesse as well as experience and people skills,” says Reddick. “But it’s worth putting the effort into learning how to leverage the power of these valuable assets to stamp out corruption and misconduct,” he says.
“Whistleblowers are proven to be the best source of information on misconduct so it’s critical that we treat them fairly, protect them and ensure they keep coming forward,” says Joe Gerard, Vice President, Marketing and Sales at i-Sight. “We are really pleased to have Tim Reddick onboard to present a webinar with us on such an important topic.”
Webinar attendees will learn about:
- The difference between a whistleblower, confidential informant and cooperating witness
- Elements of an effective whistleblower policy
- Ways to encourage reporting and get the most from whistleblowers
- Avoiding common pitfalls
