Let's encourage Whistle blowers?As far an Indian work culture is concerned, traditionally, the lower an employee is on the ladder, the lesser he/she will raise the voice against wrong doings. Wrong doings would include conduct, accounts, skimming of funds, inappropriate use of funds and corruption.
When we look at the scams in the banking sector and the public offices such mega frauds cannot happen without ringing alarm bells in some people over a period of time.
Even some of us would have noticed irregularities at place of work that would look odd and needs to be looked into. But we would not have the courage to raise our voice and concern for fear of being reprimanded by the senior officers or employees. We would also fear the impact of becoming labelled as a whistle blower on the present jobs, promotion and future jobs.
Any office or firm however big or small would frown about people who stand up the mistakes and wrong doings in the system. If, people are made feel safe, recognize reporting such errors or breach of protocol and applauded instead of being troubled, I think we can bring in a change because errant officers and higher ups will be wary of their own junior staff while thinking of committing such scams and frauds.
