THE SPEAK UP PHILOSOPHY
Speak Up is a global movement which aims to break the silence on wrongdoings at work. We believe in a human-based approach in empowering employees at all levels to speak up when they see something that may harm the organisation, while providing leaders with the tools to listen to these voices and act on the risks identified. This creates a culture where ideas and concerns are expressed, supported and addressed in the best way possible.
Imagine a world where individuals can speak freely without fear of reprimand or retaliation; while leaders have the ability to address risks before things get out of hand. We believe that this is achievable, one organisation at a time, through the speak up philosophy.
Founded in United Kingdom, Speak Up now has presence in various countries around the world including the United States, Malaysia, Istanbul, and counting. We have built a worldwide network of leaders and learners who are interested and invested in working towards the same goal.
Speak Up Malaysia is a boutique consulting firm founded on the passion to help organisations create a safe, diverse, inclusive, ethical and productive workplace for all. To date, Speak Up Malaysia has provided a wide range of services for clients ranging from regulators and government agencies, all the way to MNCs, SMEs and NGOs from various sectors.
