Whistleblowing (literally “blowing the whistle”) indicates the action of reporting abuse and is regulated by the law 179/2017. The main objective is to boost workers' motivation in order to promote the reporting of corruption in public and private bodies, with the provision for systems that allow workers to safely report any abuse they may become aware of. In this regard, the SMI Group's companies provide an online platform that can be accessed by employees, internal and external collaborators and that is specifically devoted to reports.
The Whistleblowing Portal is accessible directly from the Internet and is subject to no-log policy in order to prevent identification of the reporting individuals who want to remain anonymous. Inside it, a questionnaire shall be filled in, which allows to provide detailed information. Furthermore, it is possible to attach documents supporting the completeness and accuracy of the report. After sending the questionnaire, reporting individuals will receive a code that must be kept in order to access the portal and check the reporting status.
As an alternative to online platform, abuse can be reported by paper mail to the Whistleblowing office of the company.
