Turning Data Into Direction

How do employees report ethics concerns?

If you think it’s the hotline–think again. Ethisphere proprietary data shows that 66% of employees who choose to report ethical concerns do so to their manager, over other reporting options. This indicates that resources dedicated to your compliance program are well spent in training your managers in how best to respond.
