About The Project

Whistleblowing in the fight against corruption

In 2014 an EU RESULT GROUP findings “Criminal Risks in Medium-sized Businesses” 73% per cent of economic crimes in industry enterprises [among them sport business & orgs] “are uncovered by internal whistleblowers. ” Similar, according the 2014 Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP Study,” Fair game or foul play – tackling the rising tide of global whistleblowing “among more than 2,500 middle and senior managers worldwide “shows, that companies [among them sport business & orgs] have to improve their structures for internal whistleblowers.” Employees still fear reprisals. More than one third (37%) of all employees surveyed believe senior management at their organization would either treat them less favorably or look for ways to ” terminate their employment if they blew the whistle.” Although more than half of respondents (53%) said they would primarily encourage employees to go to their direct boss if they saw wrongdoing within their company, one in four employees (25%) said they would go directly to a regulator, external organization, or the media, if internal whistleblowing structures not functioned appropriately.
