Everything your business needs to know about the EU Directive on Whistleblower Protection

Have you heard about the EU Whistleblower Protection Directive?

By December 17, 2021, you can expect this to be transposed as a national law across all EU member states, affecting organisations with 250 employees or more.

The Whistleblower Protection directive aims to protect the safety of corporate whistleblowers as they expose misconduct events. For companies like yours, this is a great opportunity to nurture a “speak up” culture that will help you proactively address breaches and other ethical violations before they become a state-wide PR issue.

This directive brings with it certain management responsibilities too. As you strive to ensure a healthy culture and work environment, privacy concerns must also be taken into account.

To help, here is a complete guide to the EU Directive on Whistleblower Protection and how your business can adapt effectively to comply with it.

How do businesses identify and reduce Work Disability Risk?

Australian statistics report that 92% of their serious mental health concerns in the workplace are mainly caused by work-related stress. Other countries are not far off, unfortunately.

Problems like mental exhaustion, physical weariness and emotional burnout put employees at risk of what’s called ‘work disability’.

Work disability risk occurs when employees become unable to work due to ongoing illnesses, consistent anxiety or enduring injuries. This can be due to extreme job dissatisfaction and stress, resulting in employees losing the motivation to go to work and perform their roles. As a result, your company suffers from longer-term negative consequences including lost productivity, poor customer service and lower revenue generation.

Every business and employee wants to avoid this outcome. So it’s important to understand work disability risk and how you can mitigate its impact.
