Inside the Mind of a Whistleblower
A supplemental report to the ERC’s 2011 National Business Ethics Survey®
For years, the term 'whistleblower' has been used to describe those employees who go outside their company to report wrongdoing. They may do so because they do not trust their company to handle the issue appropriately or because they are angry or frustrated after their attempts at internal reporting proved to be futile. According to the study, whistleblowers almost always make some effort to root out wrongdoing internally before going outside the organization with their concerns. The new report said that only two percent of employees go solely outside their companies to report misconduct.
