April 20 - What do you do about whistle blowing? And whistle blowers?
We have one at the moment. She's suggesting one of my managers is committing a fraud. I do not know if she's right. I do think she's of sound mind. I do not think the complaint is personal, per se, or a vendetta. and instinctively I want to think she's wrong and would, in a sense, rather not think about it. So I know my reaction to someone who I think is well motivated and who is doing the right thing is, I know, wrong.
And I know I will have to do something about it. The first thing is to meet her properly today. I'm suggesting it is about a piece of wrk for which she has responsibility, but for which I suspect anyone would know I don't really need to see her so I'm going to have to show undue interest in it as a cover. And even that shows just how hard this is.
Anyone got any experience or a policy on the issue?
