A whistleblower is a person working in a public or private company who decides to report a wrongful act, fraud or danger that they have detected during their work activities (in the case of a customer, during their experience as customer of a company).

Whistleblowing is the act of reporting made by a person who, in the performance of their duties, becomes aware of a wrongful act, hazard or dangerous situation that may cause harm to the company/entity for which they work, as well as to customers, colleagues, citizens and any other category of subjects.

It is an essential tool of corporate compliance through which the employees, suppliers, customers or external collaborators of a company can report any wrongful act encountered in the course of their work in a confidential and protected manner.


Whistleblowing at DropsA S.p.A.: Regulations

As it is sensitive to ethical and proper business conduct issues, DropsA S.p.A. complies with the new legislation on whistleblowing and, by setting up an internal channel, it has put in place a system for reporting any wrongful act in relation to violations of national and European Union provisions (including the national provisions implementing them) that may have come to its attention in the context of its work.
Objective: to enable its staff to report acts or facts that may constitute misconduct or a breach of the Code of Ethics. 

At DropsA S.p.A., employees/collaborators must feel free to report any injustice or violence suffered in the course of their work - or of which they have become aware - so that the HR Manager or other internal figures can take immediate action.

Having clear internal procedures for reporting possible violations protects workers against any form of discrimination, as anonymity prevents potential retaliation. This is very important to combat even the smallest and most invisible forms of corruption that can occur within corporate contexts.
In compliance with the law and to ensure an ethical and responsible business environment, DropsA S.p.A. helps promote important values such as integrity and a sense of responsibility within the company precisely because, when human resources have the opportunity to report suspicious activities without fear of possible retaliation, they are more likely to do so.
