#PolicyThursday | Speak-Up or Whistleblowing Policy – which description do you prefer?

We prefer not to use the word “Whistleblowing” given the negative connotation it has. Speak-Up, on the other hand, is a much better label, turning a dull but necessary statutory requirement into a dynamic company value that everyone can get behind.

At CoVi Analytics we have boiled this policy down to 4 principles, supported by a list of controls that help the business achieve the intended outcome (see below).

Do you feel that maintaining a large business policy suite is adds no value to the business? Drop us a line at policy@covianalytics.com to see how we can help you achieve operational efficiencies in weeks.


Context: Policies are used by Boards to set instructions for the business. However, these documents tend to be vague and cover other areas like training, generic governance or implications of failure to follow instructions.

At CoVi we are redefining how Boards deliver instructions through policies. See comment for a post explaining how.
