Welcome to the project site for Whistling While They Work 2 – the world’s leading research into public interest whistleblowing.
The project is led by Griffith University’s Centre for Governance & Public Policy, in Brisbane, Australia. Our research team is drawn from Griffith University, University of Sydney, Australian National University, Victoria University Wellington, Australia’s Commonwealth Ombudsman, New South Wales Ombudsman, Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), CPA Australia and the New Zealand State Services Commission.
We are funded by the Australian Research Council, and supported by 22 partner and supporter organisations across Australia and New Zealand, along with our international collaborators.
The project is home to two major surveys, for any organisation wanting to establish whether your whistleblowing or ‘speak up’ policies meet current best practice; whether they are actually working; and if not, why not:
- our threshold Survey of Organisational Processes and Procedures
- Integrity@WERQ, our major survey of staff, managers and systems
The surveys are for any organisation: public sector, private sector or not-for-profit.
Join our project and contribute to a better understanding of how the benefits of whistleblowing can be realised – for your own organisation, and for society as a whole.
