The data from your ethics and compliance helpline should be benchmarked against comparable organizations to assess program health and make improvements such as implementing policies, training employees, and conducting investigations. Learn everything you need to know about benchmarking your helpline data in our toolkit.
Good analysis and benchmarking of hotline data helps organisations answer crucial questions about their ethics and compliance programme, including:
Does our culture support employees who raise concerns?
Are our communications with employees reaching the intended audiences and having the desired effect?
Are our investigations thorough and effective?
Do we need more training?
Do we need to review or update our policies?
Do employees know about our reporting channels?
Comparing internal data year over year to help answer these questions is important. But getting a broader perspective on how your performance matches up to industry norms is critical. This year’s analysis of our EMEA & APAC data from nearly 14,000 ethics and compliance hotline reports revealed key data points that compliance professionals can use to benchmark and assess their programme’s performance, and move toward predictive risk mitigation.

Especially in cases of data theft, fraud, embezzlement, etc., having detail on everything the employee did leading up to the purported “bad deed” will be critical in determining whether something improper occurred or not.
