Speak Up - Public Concern At Work

Public Concern at Work adopts Day 16 of Ethics Month by exploring why speak up is an important element of an ethical business.

This short film highlights the very real and positive change that can be achieved in workplaces when whistleblowing works.

As we know from news headlines, in our care homes and hospitals, public transport systems and factories, schools, banks and even in Parliament, too often the questions are asked after the damage has been done.

We still face the risk of a culture of silence in UK workplaces. Whistleblowers are a vital safety net in our society and can prevent and detect damage and disaster. We all need to listen to them.

Public Concern at Work is an independent charity offering free, confidential advice to UK individuals who witness malpractice at work and are unsure whether or how to raise their concern.
