Why Speak Up?

To support a ‘speak up’ culture in financial services, the CISI has developed a new suite of resources. These focus on the importance of professionals having the knowledge and courage to speak up when they witness failings, large or small, which impact the standards set by their organisation.

When you see a problem, speaking up takes moral courage. It helps your organisation maintain integrity and supports long-term sustainability. Speaking up is a positive action, highlighting failings both large or small, which can impact the standards within an organisation.

However, speaking up should be more than an individual action. Instead, a speak up culture needs to be developed and embedded – where individuals see it as a matter of course to raise concerns when they have them.

The CISI has developed a suite of resources to support financial services organisations in embedding this culture, providing knowledge to organisations and confidence to individuals.

Speak Up – the Interactive Workshop

The interactive workshop has been developed to encourage staff across your company to consider how to approach challenges and dilemmas. Colleagues will have the opportunity to discuss and debate a series of true to life scenarios, and understand how to speak up with confidence.

Using interactive discussions and live voting, the Speak Up workshop encourages participants to think about how they can, and would, respond to potential issues within their workplace.
