Capture More of Your Employees’ Concerns

Gather more insights from hotline reports to open-door conversations.

The Challenge: The Solution:
Workplace misconduct can never be eliminated entirely, but when it’s visible, it can be addressed. Providing a hotline or web intake site to your employees gives them a safe place to report their concerns, but studies show that over 80 percent of ethics and compliance incidents are reported directly to managers1. While this speaks to a level of trust in leadership, these open-door reports create their own set of risks. They are typically handled at a specific location or, even worse, on an individual level. Without visibility into reported concerns across the whole of the organization, the leadership’s understanding of its risk is incomplete. EthicsPoint® is a centralized incident management database that can track all of your reports regardless of intake method. From hotline calls to web-based forms to report forms for capturing open-door conversations, you can have a more complete picture of the misconduct within your organization. It also allows your organization to build and utilize a more decisive and consistent investigative process for each report regardless of its origin. This empowers managers and organizations to build and maintain their open-door culture, gain a more holistic picture of their organization’s risks and make more informed decisions.

Process: Incident Management for the Whole Organization

  • Collect all reports of misconduct, whether it’s from a hotline, web intake site or an open-door report form.
  • Manage all incidents in a centralized database and investigating each report through standard operating processes.
  • Learn about risks and potential problem areas through robust analytics and ad hoc reports. Identify any problem areas to address before they grow or spread.
  • Act based on the information you gather from your incident management system: enhance your code of conduct, direct your training and refine your policies.
