Who is a whistleblower? Whom does the Directive concern, what does it require? Through comprehensive online training, the notification required by the directive can be provided to an unlimited number of employees in a uniform manner.

The objective of the Whis­tleblower Dir­ective is to make sure that if a person has detected or sus­pects an act con­trary to the public interest in spe­cific areas of EU law in the course of his or her work, the person can safely report this in his or her organ­isation. Organ­isa­tions are obliged to establish a safe reporting channel usable by their employees for anonymous problem reporting. In addition, organ­isa­tions must notify their employees of the reporting options at their dis­posal and appoint a qual­ified and unbiased person or team for mon­it­oring such reports and responding to them.

Apprix Builder® offers an easy and effi­cient way for making sure the entire per­sonnel is aware of the new dir­ective and its require­ments. A Builder training covers all employees in a uniform manner, regardless of the number and loc­ation of participants.

Does the Directive apply to your company?

The Dir­ective applies to all organ­isa­tions with more than 50 employees. Within the EU, the dir­ective shall be adopted for com­panies with more than 250 employees by 17 December 2021 at the latest and for com­panies with 50-249 employees by 17 December 2023.

How can Apprix Builder online training be used to ensure compliance with law?

With Builder online training, noti­fying the employees of the reporting options available and providing guidance is easy. This can be accom­plished con­veni­ently as part of broader com­pliance training. Through com­pre­hensive online training, each employee of the organ­isation can be provided with con­sistent and up-to-date inform­ation on the subject. Based on Builder stat­istics, it is easy to prove that all employees of the organ­isation have indeed com­pleted the training required. This way, the organ­isation also ensures com­pliance with the necessary standards and cer­ti­ficates in practice.

How can Builder be used to ensure individual training?

The design of the Builder tool involves both ped­agogics and a strong know­ledge of work life. Through examples and obser­vation models, com­pre­hension is ensured on a prac­tical level, with motiv­ation and par­ti­cip­ation in common prac­tices. It is pos­sible to revisit the training after­wards, should the cir­cum­stances at work so require. The training is also an easy way for intro­ducing new employees to the subject.

“For many com­panies, a key pre­con­dition to legal training is the pos­sib­ility to record com­pletion of the training in the company’s own system. This way, it can be verified that the company has done its duty. For many of our cus­tomers, Builder’s stat­istical inform­ation con­sti­tutes an integral part of meeting legal oblig­a­tions, and often also a pre­requisite for main­taining various certificates,”

says Jesse Jokinen, who has been devel­oping the legal training module at Apprix already for 20 years, in close co-oper­ation with com­panies and legal experts alike.
