Whistleblowing is the act of misconduct or an improper state of affairs within an organisation. Whistleblowing is a crucial aspect of finding and fixing small organisational problems before they become big ones. Research has also shown that companies that receive and investigate whistleblower reports show a significant and lasting decline in misconduct incidents. But often employees are reluctant to report misconduct they notice at work because of fear that the organisation or another employee will take adverse action against them for speaking up.
