WSP is committed to promoting ethical and honest behaviour and ensuring that WSP co-workers feel safe and secure in their work environment. In support of this commitment, WSP operates an anonymous Whistleblower Service through an independent third party to facilitate reporting by co-workers of potential misconduct in the workplace, including:
• Unethical/illegal behaviour
• Workplace safety hazards
WSP’s Whistleblower Policy and Whistleblower Service ensure that, in line with legislation in many parts of the world, co-workers can raise concerns regarding inappropriate conduct in good faith without being subjected to victimisation, harassment or discriminatory treatment and to having such concerns properly investigated. WSP recognises that reporting such behaviour in good faith and in accordance with WSP’s Whistleblower Policy is an important aspect of each co-worker’s role within the Group.
The Whistleblower Service provides many benefits, including the opportunity for management to reinforce relevant policies and make changes to current procedures where applicable.
Each report to the Whistleblower Service is investigated thoroughly and appropriate action taken where necessary. Whistleblower matters are reported to WSP’s Board.
