Government Compliance Case Study
A County Government had accepted whistleblower reportS directly to their office and thought their low volume of reports indicated a lack of problems. An honest disclosure from an employee raised leadership’s awareness that the lack of anonymity controls provided by a third-party provider led everyone to believe that reports wouldn’t be acted on. By adopting a comprehensive transparency solution with Ethico, the County was able to deliver a fresh message about their commitment to transparency as well as gain newfound visibility into some things that weren’t working. They actually saved some of their budget by reallocating resources after adopting a more efficient reporting process, and identified several vendors who were not in compliance through the adoption of SanctionCheck.
