Whistle Blower Policy
The North Okanagan Hospice Society (NOHS) is a non-profit organization that provides compassionate end-of-life care and support to individuals and families in the North Okanagan region of British Columbia, Canada. To ensure ethical behavior and compliance with the law, NOHS has implemented a whistle blower policy that provides guidelines and protection for employees who report any illegal or unethical behavior within the organization.
NOHS’s whistleblower policy emphasizes the importance of confidentiality, protecting the identity of employees who come forward with any concerns or complaints. The policy also outlines the legal rights and protections available to employees, including protection from retaliation or discrimination. In addition, the policy provides procedures for investigating the issue and protecting the whistleblower during and after the investigation.
Having a whistleblower policy in place demonstrates NOHS’s commitment to transparency, accountability, and ethical behavior. By providing a safe environment for employees to report any concerns, NOHS promotes a culture of trust and integrity. This, in turn, can help attract and retain top talent, as well as earn the trust and support of its stakeholders, including donors, volunteers, and the community.
In summary, NOHS’s whistleblower policy is an essential component of its compliance program, providing protection and support for employees who report any illegal or unethical behavior. By promoting transparency, accountability, and ethical behavior, NOHS demonstrates its commitment to providing compassionate end-of-life care and support to individuals and families in the North Okanagan region.
