Everyday is the day

to do the right thing!

In Brazil, the contracting of an anonymous information registration service with the purpose of curbing fraud and bad practices is not yet mandatory, except for some institutions that depend on the authorization of the Central Bank to operate.

However, we must consider the constant changes promoted in the Brazilian stock market, with the objective of providing a business environment that stimulates investors' interest in ethical organizations committed to honesty and transparency. The result of these measures is the increase in the number of businesses and the valuation of these companies. Bovespa, for example, has created a classification of companies, which is based on the adoption of additional corporate governance practices in relation to what is required by Brazilian regulations. The purpose of this classification is to create a more appropriate environment so that companies can, from better corporate governance practices and greater transparency of information, provide investors with greater security.     Faced with this incessant search for improvements, it is believed that it is only a matter of time before Brazilian companies are obliged to make this type of service available to their employees, employees and partners, thereby providing greater security to shareholders and the market in general.

In the United States, for example, since the creation of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), companies are required to create mechanisms to receive, retain and investigate complaints from employees.

The Sarbanes-Oxley Act aimed at ensuring the creation of reliable auditing and security mechanisms in organizations, including rules for the creation of committees to oversee their activities and operations, in order to prevent fraud or to ensure that there is a means of identifying them, When they occur, ensuring transparency in the management of companies.

The creation of mechanisms to receive and investigate complaints has also been regulated in England, Canada, Japan, France and Germany.
