We looked at the visibility of policies and procedures across APAC-listed companies. Our 2018 research found that 82% of companies publicly refer to having a reporting channel. Of that 82%, a high proportion – 76% – make the policy publicly available. See our analysis here.
We looked at the visibility of policies and procedures across Europe’s top companies. In 2018, 91% of top European companies publicly refer to having a reporting channel for concerns, compared to 79% back in 2014. Of the 91% of companies that publicly reference a reporting channel in 2018, only 50% make the policy publicly available. See our analysis here.
We looked at the visibility of policies and procedures across the UK’s FTSE 100 companies. “Speak up” arrangements are becoming the new norm. We compared our results from 2014 and found 71% of FTSE100 companies made reference to having some form of reporting channel, but in late 2018 this has risen to all of the FTSE100 companies. We can identify some trends eg. it’s typical for reporting arrangements in 2018 to offer a range of methods of escalating concerns with an externally managed independent dedicated phoneline being the most frequently referred to method.
