Whistleblow Integrity Platform
Proper governance of organizations is one of the key pillars for their effective operation and development. Proper decision making, in addition to rational organizational operation, requires timely and reliable information and communication. The EU, moving in this direction, passed the 2019/1937 Directive on the Protection of Persons Reporting Breaches of European Law, also known as the Whistleblowing Directive. The European Directive in combination with the National Legislation, such as the law L.4080 / 2021 on Violence and Harassment in the Workplace, create a framework of transparency but also a shield to protect both the public interest (financial crimes, unfair practices , environment, services and products, public health, etc.), but also each citizen individually (avoidance of retaliation, personal safety and dignity, labor rights etc.). However, the regulatory framework also helps the organizations themselves, in order to manage the risks in time, to avoid fines and measures that can damage the organization’s reputation or even its viability.
PRIORITY offers all consultancy services, so that organizations can adapt the European Directive into their daily job, through the development of policies and procedures taking into account the structure and business of the organization.
Additionally, PRIORITY through its official partnership with EQS, provides one of the most world known platforms for submitting reports (Integrity Line), undertaking the initial configuration of the platform, user training, service delivery and support. Τhe service is offered as subscription SaaS and the platform provides internal/external channels for the submission of anonymous or anonymous reports, ensuring absolute security and transparency, covering all the requirements of the European Directive and the General Data Protection Regulation.
