Whistleblowing in the world of banking : – a method of internal reporting (English)
Abstract [sv]

Frågeställning: Vilken uppfattning har bankanställda om begreppet whistleblowing och begreppets användning som metod för internrapportering?

Hur tror bankanställda att deras arbetssituation kommer att påverkas av användandet av whistleblowing som internrapportering?

Syfte: Syftet med uppsatsen är att utveckla förståelsen för anställdas uppfattning om begreppet whistleblowing och användandet av whistleblowing som en metod för internrapportering i den befintliga organisationen och verksamheten.

Metod: Studien utfördes med en abduktiv ansats och en kvalitativ undersökning utfördes för datainsamling, det i form av semistrukturerade intervjuer med sju anställda på tre olika banker. Resultatet från intervjuerna analyserades med hjälp av en tematisk analysmetod.

Slutsats: Studien visar att flertalet av respondenterna vet om att det finns interna rapportsystem inom organisationen men inte hur de ska använda de om det skulle bli aktuellt. De vet heller inte något om att Finansinspektionen har kommit med nya regler som behandlar just detta. De säger sig vara positiva till att det finns möjlighet till att rapportera internt men skulle helst undvika att behöva rapportera själva om det var möjligt. Respondenterna tror sig ha en positiv uppfattning till användandet av whistleblowing. Trots detta visar resultatet att respondenterna är negativt inställda till whistleblowing och användandet och användandet av begreppet som en metod för internrapportering. 

Abstract [en]

Research questions:  What opinion do the bank employees have about the concept of whistleblowing and the use of it as an internal reporting method?

How do the bank employees think their work environment will be affected by the use of whistleblowing as internal reporting method?

Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to develop the understanding about the employees’ opinion of the concept of whistleblowing and the use of whistleblowing as a system for internal reporting in the existing organization and work activity.

Method: The study was made with an abductive method with a qualitative research design to collect data; semi-structural interviews were held with seven employees from three different banks. The result from the interviews was analyzed with a thematic analysis method.

Conclusion: The study shows that the most of the respondents knows about that their organization do have systems for internal reporting but do not know how to use them if it gets necessary. They do not either know about the Finance inspections new rules about internal reporting. The opinion they say they have about the possibility of reporting internal is positive but if it is possible to avoid reporting they would rather choose that option. By the answers of the employees they say they do have a positive look at the use of internal reporting. Despite this the results of this study shows that the respondents have a negative attitude towards whistleblowing and the use of it as a method for internal reporting.
