  • Summary

In cooperation with 1. VOX a.s. we have prepared a seminar for you on the topic of whisteblowing. 

At the seminar, we will introduce you to the new legislation on whistleblowing (the so-called Whistleblowing Act) and related new obligations for almost all companies. The new legislation obliges companies to establish channels for reporting infringements and protecting whistleblowers.

As part of the training, we will explain to you what the new obligations mean in practice, and we will propose an effective solution on how to manage them without threat of sanction.

We will also describe how to make the best use of these new responsibilities for the benefit of the company and how to obtain information on risks or fraud and how to respond to them in a timely manner. We will introduce you to an effective tool for implementing everything in your company by means of process automation.

Target group: The seminar is intended primarily for CEOs or CFOs, controllers, compliance and ethics officers, investigators of suspected violations, and internal auditors.
