NOVA Entertainment creates whistleblower program for reporting misconduct
NOVA Entertainment has launched a new whistleblower program for employees to report discrimination, bullying, harassment, offensive behaviour, fraud, illegal acts, corruption and other forms of misconduct.
NOVA said the Speak Up! program “is all about communication”.
“If you see, hear about, or are a victim of behaviour that falls short of the standards we set at NOVA, we want you to say something in a way that feels right for you,” the company said in an internal note to staff, seen by Radio Today.
As part of the initiative, NOVA announced a new partnership with Your Call, an independent, confidential whistleblower service that will provide a new channel for reporting conduct and behaviour “that falls short of NOVA’s expected standards”.
NOVA said it must be committed to the highest standards of conduct and ethical behaviour, which is critical to its culture, values and the company’s long-term success.
In addition, NOVA has updated its Whistleblower and Equal Employment Opportunity policies.
NOVA Entertainment did not answer Radio Today’s question about whether the whistleblower program would be available to former employees, but issued the following statement.
“The Speak Up! initiative is a natural, evolutionary step in NOVA’s ongoing commitment to ensuring equal opportunity and a safe and supportive working environment for all employees,” a spokesperson said.
