Wrongdoing and malpractice in the workplace

When there is wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace employees are often the first to notice. Workplace wrongdoing or malpractice, at any level, invariably damages an employer. If no one has the courage to raise it, it can take years to uncover. Damage to the employer can be financial, reputational or both.

Workplace wrongdoing or malpractice can negatively impact employee wellbeing, reduce productivity and make the workplace unattractive. Customers, the lifeblood of the business, can suffer. Suppliers and service providers can be adversely impacted. There can be legal or regulatory implications - even fines.

The wrongdoing or malpractice can be once off or ongoing. It can involve illegal, unethical or immoral behaviour or breach of process, procedure, codes or policies. It can be deliberate or unintentional - or simply due to negligence or poor practice. It can range from minor in nature to very significant and can involve one or more employees or members of management - from the most junior to the most senior.

When there is wrongdoing or malpractice in the workplace, employers need a trusted system for employees to raise them.  This is where Raiseaconcern.com can help.  We offer a range of tailored services to help you establish systems for your employees to raise concerns to you in a secure manner, a manner they will be comfortable with, where the concentration is on the concern and not on the person raising it
