On a mission to change whistleblowing
Our vision – a healthier workplace, for everyone
We are firm believers in the power of creating a fair and transparent workplace based on trust. Something that guides not only our business ethics and how we treat each other in our offices but also something we’re on a mission to spread.
Wrongdoing takes place in all kinds of organizations around the world, every day, even with a whistleblowing tool available.
To engage your employees in noticing and reporting wrongdoing we see that striving for a safe, transparent, and fair work environment can increase employee satisfaction, improve engagement, and proactively manage wrong behavior and misconduct that could harm your culture.

Behind the NorthWhistle you find a team whose whole is more than the sum of its parts. We have a broad background that shines in tech and compliance, but above all, we strive for more fairness in the work environment because we believe that is the core of every collaboration.

Our values – what makes us, us.
For us working with NorthWhistle, it’s more than compliance and systems. We believe that knowledge is key for building a whistleblowing culture that not only complies with the directive but sets into action its values for the desired effect.
We are on a mission to help organisations and their employees, as well as the public, understand what whistleblowing can be.
There is a quote by Napoleon Bonaparte that says “The world suffers a lot. Not because of the violence of bad people but because of the silence of good people.”
But for good people to speak up they need to be and feel safe. We believe that the key to being safe on equal terms and avoiding any kind of retaliation is to be anonymous. That’s why we strive for innovative tech that designs safe spaces that empower a speak-up culture. Our developers’ mission is to build the safest system on the market introducing features that make the system so secure that we can not even access the information ourselves.
We live by the code of practice that you preach and believe that principles such as honesty, transparency, and fairness are key in any business that wants its employees to thrive. For employees to thrive they need leadership that set examples of what business ethics mean and holds themselves accountable in everything they do.
