Non-monetary benefits

 «

As the results of the Chapter Decision making show, by introducing a whistleblowing system, companies do not only aim to avoid financial damages. They are also convinced of the benefits and effectiveness of the whistleblowing system and would like to strengthen their image as an ethical and moral company. This raises the question of the extent to which companies benefit from their whistleblowing systems and whether such a system also has non-monetary benefits in addition to the financial aspects.

Across all countries, the companies surveyed most frequently find that their employees gain a better understanding of compliance thanks to the whistleblowing system. Furthermore, the whistleblowing system contributes to strengthening the image of the company as an ethical and moral one and to improving behavioural integrity. They also benefit from improved processes.

The companies from Germany and France also observe a lower number of cases of misconduct, whereas the whistleblowing systems in the Swiss companies are also held responsible for professionalising their compliance systems and compliance management.
