Express yourself freely

Safely, fairly, reliably and securely

What is meant by Whistleblowing?

Whistleblowing is an extension, now also legally obligatory, of our corporate culture: we have always encouraged all our employees to express personal opinions and reports, for example on how to behave in the workplace, in complete serenity.

The English term literally means “to blow a whistle,” as a referee does when a foul is committed. The meaning in the professional context could be, “reporting of (potential) wrongdoing, with protection and confidentiality of the reporter.”

European that harm the public interest or the integrity of the public administration or private entity, which they have become aware of in their work context.
