After more than 21 years in this business, we appreciate how important it is for organisations like yours to have a mechanism in place where valuable information can be channeled to you on an on-going basis. This information could relate to service experiences or to unlawful and inappropriate behaviour by your staff or other stakeholders.
Be Heard® is a service provided by Be Heard Now (Pty) Ltd and our vision is “providing channels where anyone can raise their concerns and report any unethical, unlawful or inappropriate activities anonymously and confidentially“!
Be Heard® is much more than just a hotline and we have recently restructured our offerings by introducing a number of innovative and unique features and complimentary services which will ensure that you receive the best possible return on your monthly subscription.
Whereas even 10 years ago most risk management effort and resources were of a reactive nature (like investigations) the trend lately is to introduce proactive measures to identify service failures and unlawful and inappropriate behaviour in the workplace. From a return on investment perspective we are offering you a proven service for your organisation which could save you hundreds of thousands of Rand, provide you with early warning of inappropriate behaviour, reduce risk to your reputation and positively impact upon the culture of your organisation!
