There is a mechanism for employees of all levels to safely (without fear of retaliation) raise any concern or ask a needed question — an organizational ombuds program.
Properly constructed and executed organizational ombuds programs provide those who access the function a place to:
- Consider possible solutions;
- Navigate the complexity of today’s organizations;
- Sound out an idea; and
- Build a plan of action to address a situation.
As a result of being involved in these activities, the ombuds program is positioned to raise leadership’s awareness and understanding of key issues the organization faces.
