The IBE Speak Up Toolkit, devised by the Institute of Business Ethics, helps you to prepare for raising a concern. It covers the whole speak up journey – from noticing a problem and having a conversation through to what to expect if you call a Speak Up helpline or if your concern is investigated.
It is a resource that has been developed using first-hand experience and understanding of the emotional experience of raising a concern, coupled with the IBE’s knowledge of what constitutes good practice for organisations receiving those concerns.
Speaking up is often an experience that provokes a mix of emotions; it can be complex and feel daunting. You will be asked to choose how you feel in response to questions before receiving appropriate guidance that recognises your emotional reaction and guides you to resolving your concern.
The Toolkit drives people to have conversations, as issues are usually best resolved as soon as possible and amongst colleagues. It suggests resources you might look for in your organisation or IBE support material.
The Speak Up Toolkit is a resource that you can dip in and out of. It is there to offer support and guide you through every step of your Speak Up journey.
