How It Works

Workplace environments with open, transparent, and positive codes of conduct encourage their employees to excel. Organisations which safeguard the well-being of their employees, and have procedures and policies in place to prevent unethical conduct, are also less at risk from dishonest and fraudulent behaviour.

Report It Now™ provides organisations with an effective system to prevent unethical conduct. Operating independently from your internal processes, we empower your employees to report suspected wrongdoing for the benefit of your business.

Risk Evaluation

Report It Now will evaluate the risks to your organisation of dishonesty and misconduct in the workplace.

Needs Assessment

Based on our detailed analysis, we will recommend a range of effective strategies specific to your organisation’s ethical needs.

Policy Development

Working collaboratively, we will develop your organisation’s ethics and integrity guidelines, including establishing an internal whistleblowing policy.

Staff Training

We will train and assist your ethics committee to ensure full compliance with the Protected Disclosures Act 2000.

Service Promotion

We will develop awareness materials to help your ethics committee promote and educate your staff about our whistleblowing service.

Ongoing Analysis

To maintain ethics and minimise instances of unethical behaviour, we will provide ongoing monitoring and reporting analysis.

“Good employers should see whistleblowing as an early warning system about areas of concern in their business. The more whistleblowing becomes normalised – and is simply a process for referring improvements – the less people see it as dramatically ‘unmasking’ improper processes.”

– Parsons

Case Management System

Report It Now’s independent and secure system enables your employees to report suspected corrupt, unethical, dishonest or inappropriate behaviour as it occurs in the workplace.

Our Case Management System, which operates separately from your organisation, manages and tracks reports via our secure website. Importantly, Case Management System allows companies to remain compliant with the Protected Disclosures Act 2000.

Case Management System Benefits

SAFEGUARD YOUR ORGANISATION
Organisations with a fraud reporting hotline reduced internal theft and fraud by up to 50% through early detection and the deterrence effect created by the presence of an external system.

Positive workplace culture helps to enhance company reputation while improving employee and customer satisfaction. Our service promotes integrity and is tailored to your organisation’s code of conduct.
MONITOR TRENDS
Our ‘CASE MANAGEMENT SYSTEM’ enables us to provide incident and periodic reports that will assist you and your management team in defining trends in fraudulent behaviour or high risk areas.

ENSURE LEGISLATIVE COMPLIANCE
We assist your company or organisation to comply with legislative requirements, like the Protected Disclosures Act 2000 and ICANZ requirements relating to disclosures and declarations in Financial Statements.

In Your Business

Our independent, secure reporting system is designed to enable employees to report on dishonest and inappropriate behaviour in the workplace as it occurs. However, we understand every business has unique requirements. That is why we tailor the service to meet the specific dynamics of your organization.

The cost of utilizing our service is minimal when compared to the financial impact of fraudulent or unethical activity in your organisation.

Understanding Your Business Needs

Our team listens carefully to understand your business before launching the Report It Now™ service. This robust, knowledge-gathering stage enables us to tailor the service to your needs before the programme is introduced to staff. We will then work alongside any nominated representative to ensure correct implementation of the service.

Developing Awareness Material

Communicating the benefits of using Report It Now to your staff is vital. We recommend using joint branding on all collateral. All material supplied by us has clear reference to the website and phone service, 0800 {actual number}. We will also ensure material is suitable for relevant contractors, suppliers and stakeholders.

Reporting and Tracking Incidents

Using Report It Now’s Case Management System allows individuals who have reported an incident to remain anonymous, if they choose. Each report is assigned a confidential ID number allowing the reportee to track the progress of their report.

Full details of each report are provided to your company’s representative within 24 hours.

“Report It Now’s whistleblowing hotline has provided our employees with a secure, independent system where they can report unethical behaviour. In an industry where fraudulent activity can occur, their service has saved us thousands of dollars over the years.”
