What happens when a whistleblower contacts SpeakUp( EthicsPoint)?

When you file a report with SpeakUp (EthicsPoint) either via web site or through the hotline you will be asked to provide information regarding your concern. We strongly encourage you to feel comfortable in providing as much relevant information as possible to enable the concern to be properly assessed and investigated by Kingfisher.

You will receive a unique user name and are asked to choose a password. You can return to the SpeakUp (EthicsPoint) system again either via web site or hotline and access the original report to add more detail or answer questions posed by a company representative and add further information that will help resolve open issues.

We strongly suggest that you return to the site in the time specified to answer company questions. You and the company now have entered into an “anonymous dialogue,” where situations are not only identified, but can also be resolved, no matter how complex.

What happens to a concern once escalated via SpeakUp?

We treat all matters very seriously and we have strong mechanisms in place to ensure that concerns are being properly managed.

Once a report is submitted, an acknowledgment of receipt will be delivered to the whistleblower.

After an initial review, a decision will be made as to whether and how Kingfisher will investigate the report. The individual who made the report will be notified once a decision is made whether to pursue an investigation.

All related parties will be notified once a case is closed. However, we may not be able to provide full details of the outcome of a case for reasons of confidentiality, privacy and the legal rights of all concerned.
