Opening Comments

Matthew Taylor is the Chief Executive of the NHS Confederation, author of the Taylor Review into Modern Workplace Practices, and has spent many years thinking about creating safer environments for the future of our workforce. 

 

In 2022, he hosted Radio 4's documentary "Dirty Work" where he explained that despite his extensive grounding in tackling workplace culture, when he fell victim to poor treatment at work, it took him a long time to realise that what he was experiencing was bullying. Anxiety, self-doubt and isolation meant that he never did anything about it at the time, but it set him on a path of thinking about this prevalent and hidden issue.

Whistleblowing Bill

 Whistleblowers are the first line of defense against crime, corruption and cover up. They should be the boards best friend and the organisations greatest asset. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that they are the most cost effective anti-crime measure. 

The Whistleblowing bill seeks to achieve of four primary goals; providing a legal definition of a whistleblower in law that protects every person, legitimate investigations into protected disclosures, penalties for inflicting detriment on whistleblowers, and establishing the Office of the Whistleblower.

 

Georgina will be sharing her experience of bullying and why the Protection of Whistleblowing Bill will transform the way that retaliation is treated.
