Will encouraging employees to ‘speak up’ really make a difference?

Led by Asha Palmer, Chief Ethics & Compliance Officer & EVP Converge – Convercent by OneTrust & Peter Stone, Senior Compliance Counsel – Convercent by OneTrust
We know that speaking up about unethical or indeed, illegal practices, can make a real difference. It is a key way to help maintain high standards of business behavior throughout an organisation. However, surveys indicate that only around 60% of employees who know about unethical practices in their organisations raise the matter. This is generally because they are too concerned about the outcome of their doing this. In this session, Asha and Peter will explore what has been done in Convercent to encourage her colleagues to raise their concerns and thus encourage a more ethical workplace.
