Why Employee Tip Lines Don’t Work

Posted on 10/9/15 10:00 AM

Employee reporting lines have been around for several decades. They go by many different names like Business Abuse Line, Employee Tip line, Careline and many others. It seems like this communication vehicle is a must have for anyone operating a business. One would think with the number of issues that arise in a workplace on a weekly basis that the phone would be ringing off the hook.

That’s not a bad thing since our goal is to have an environment where our employees feel comfortable in communicating their concerns and observations.

Building a Successful Whistleblower Hotline Program

Posted on 6/14/11 9:30 AM

One of the most important elements of a proactive and effective loss prevention program is setting up an anonymous whistleblower hotline.  In recent years, the hotline has become a hallmark of most loss prevention teams with varying degrees of success.  In fact, in the most recent version of the National Retail Security Survey, which is released annually by the University of Florida, 94.9% of respondents have some form of hotline in place.  In this day and age, if you are one of the few remaining companies without a hotline, you are missing out on a goldmine of information from your employees.
