    Corporate ethics and compliance officers have long sought to quantify the business value of internal hotline reporting systems.

    A groundbreaking new study out of George Washington University – Evidence on the Use and Efficacy of Internal Whistleblowing Systems1 – examines the relationship between internal reporting system usage and business performance. To conduct this study, researchers were granted access to the industry’s largest internal whistleblowing, database which is maintained and secured by NAVEX. Visibility was limited to report tallies and classification of type. No personally or company-identifiable information is included in this report. The data examined includes hotline reports over a fourteen-year period, 2004-2017.
