The Benjamin Franklin quote could not be more appropriate given the global financial crisis, austerity measures, new anti-bribery legislation and the continued threat of fraud and financial misconduct in the workplace.

AAB People offers a unique external and independent whistleblowing/hotline service provides an easy and accessible route for employees to expose, not only unwanted practices, such as fraud, theft, financial misconduct and corruption, but matters covering health & safety, bullying, discrimination and harassment. (Specific Country legislation limits some of the matters that can be reported)

We all face a slow and fragile road to recovery, yet real business benefits can be achieved by organisations that act with integrity.

The services of AAB People can enhance the integrity and ethical reputation of any organisation, which, in turn, provides the organisation with a commercial advantage. Many businesses are reluctant to work with organisations who have no transparent or tangible ethical policies or procedures. Those who pay ‘lip service’ or conform to ‘tick box’ compliance also suffer commercially.

As well as providing this commercial advantage, AAB People also provide that all important ‘adequate procedure’ as described in the Bribery Act 2010.

All organisations are vulnerable to fraudulent and corrupt activity, negligence and mismanagement. The associated losses, both financial and of life can be devastating.

It is not all doom and gloom though. The good news is that there are many steps businesses can take to prevent these losses. The services of AAB People ensure that organisations can provide their employees with an independent and confidential reporting mechanism that yields effective results.

AAB People is the unique external and independent whistle blowing service where every client organisation, small, medium or large, matters.

We approach each client organisation with a thorough and creative set of methodologies in order to deliver best service in agreement with specific client needs.

Make ethical behaviour a priority and demonstrate commitment to achieving it by implementing the services of AAB People.
