IMA® (Institute of Management Accountants) conducted a survey of senior finance professionals to find out how companies are making it safer for employees to report unethical and fraudulent behavior.


Of the 73% of companies whose written whistleblower policy is consistent with the IMA Statement of Ethical Professional Practice:


89% say fear of retaliation isn’t an issue when reporting wrongdoing.


63% say their company’s policy is effective in providing protection against whistleblower retaliation.


45% are “very comfortable” raising ethical problems.
