Did you know that policyIQ has a built-in WhistleBlower feature that allows for the anonymous reporting of issues to designated agents? Did you now that it can be implemented and rolled out to all of your company’s employees for free? Did you know that you could rename that module and use it for other types of anonymous two-way communication, such as feedback, suggestions, or cost-saving ideas?
If you answered yes to all of those questions, you get a gold star.
policyIQ has included a WhistleBlower feature since the early days of Sarbanes-Oxley legislation. The WhistleBlower feature was designed to meet the SOX requirement to protect whistleblowers or those that report concerns over possible fraud or wrongdoing. Over the past several years, the Dodd-Frank Act has added even more urgency to this concept, with more incentive provided to whistleblowers whose reports are not acted upon internally.
With that in mind, we want to make it easy for YOU to implement WhistleBlower in policyIQ – for free and in just a few easy steps. We have created a tip sheet that walks through how to set up WhistleBlower, designate the Agents who handle cases, and roll-out the feature to your entire company. (The tip sheet is available under the Attachments and Linked Pages area.)
Even if your organization already has a solid reporting hotline, consider using the policyIQ WhistleBlower feature as a mechanism to collect anonymous feedback, accept suggestions or field cost saving ideas that employees might otherwise be reluctant to share. And as always, if you need help getting started, don’t hesitate to contact us!
