Whistling while they work: Improving managerial and organisational responses to whistleblowing in the public and private sectors

Welcome to Whistling While They Work – world leading research into the role of public interest whistleblowing in organisational, institutional and societal integrity.

Our most recent project, Whistling While They Work 2, was led by Griffith University’s Centre for Governance & Public Policy, in Brisbane, Australia. The research team was 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 were supported by the Australian Research Council and 23 partner and supporter organisations across Australia and New Zealand, along with our international collaborators.

The project involved two major surveys to help organisations establish whether their whistleblowing or ‘speak up’ policies meet current best practice, test their ethical culture, climate and leadership, and to assist in improving governance and regulation standards around the world:
