Shout is committed to operating ethically and as a client-centric organisation, we are committed to prioritising the needs and rights of our clients.
As an organisation, we take compliance with legislation and regulations very seriously.
We, therefore, have a number of key policies in place which all our staff must abide by.
We also require our partners and suppliers to note these policies and to ensure that they operate within the policy framework.
Here is a list of key policies we operate under:
What is a whistleblower?
A whistle-blower can either be a client, staff member or other external party, intending to disclose information about conduct of Shout-It-Now, fellow employee/s of Shout-It-Now, a member of management or partners of Shout-It-Now.
What is whistleblowing?
Whistleblowing is raising a concern about perceived/ potential wrongdoing within an organisation.
What should be disclosed?
A disclosure is about revealing information on the conduct of the employer, fellow employee/s, member of management and is not limited to matters of a financial nature and includes but is not limited to:
If you are an employee of Shout, minor issues can be reported to an immediate supervisor/manager. A disclosure differs from a grievance in that a grievance is regarding a human resources or payroll-related problem that an individual has, such as queries on leave calculations, pension or the behaviour of a colleague. All grievances of employees should be submitted to Human Resources.
Will I get into trouble if I make a disclosure?
No. If a disclosure is made in good faith, there will not be any negative consequences to you. Whistle-blowers are protected by law. All acts of victimisation against whistle-blowers are illegal.
How do I make a disclosure anonymously?
