Using Hotlines and Hotline Data Effectively

Hotline and Ethics Reporting Whitepaper

Read this whitepaper to explore:

  • Tips for linking ethics reporting and hotline data into a case management system
  • Best practices for building an effective hotline submission process using knowledgeable call center listeners and well-designed Web submission forms
  • Examples of effective ethics hotline policies and a case handling architecture
  • The role of the Board of Directors and Tone at the Top in overseeing the effectiveness of an organization's ethical culture

Whitepaper synopsis:

Done well, a ‘hotline’ is about a set of processes which collects knowledge about wrongdoing or Code of Conduct gaps, documents it all in one place, provides the tools to efficiently act on the information, and makes it easy to track and follow up to assure the highest levels of governance. Encouraging open and honest communication is only the first step – to go beyond compliance to compliance management requires an understanding of Tone at the Top; high level analysis of trends, cases, categories of submissions, geographic or site-specific differences; and a link to ethics education and training. This paper – perfect for both novices and those from complex organizations with global reach - discusses both the basics of instituting an effective hotline as well as the importance of having the hotline part of a broader approach to compliance management.
