Deloitte ME PoV: Will whistleblowing challenge Middle East companies?DOWNLOAD
14 August, 2013- Whistleblowing, or ‘Ethics’ hotlines, have gained importance in the Middle East over the last few years, although it is difficult to identify any legislation to protect ‘whistle-blowers’ in the region. This topic is discussed in the summer 2013 issue of the Deloitte Middle East Point of View (ME PoV), the quarterly thought-leadership publication and App for tablets. The latest edition tackles current hot matters from intellectual capital in Islamic Finance, to liquefied natural gas in Qatar, cyber-attacks, and many more matters of interest to business leaders in the Middle East.
One of the interesting topics for Middle East leaders and companies relates to the need for boards to “SACK” management if reporting is being done ineffectively. “SACK” is an acronym developed by the author of “Less is more”, featured in the Middle East Point of View publication and App. ‘Stipulate, Appoint, Collaborate, Keep monitoring’, or “SACK”, consists of a 4-point solution for efficient and effective management reporting developed by the author to assist companies working towards succeeding in their projects.
In line with the focus on people within firms, in ‘Event Management: bringing people together’, the author explores the need for effective event management following the rapid social and business development taking place in the Middle East. Driven by huge economic and population growth in Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, demand for events in the MENA region appears to be increasing at a far greater pace than the rest of the world, thereby increasing the need for effective and efficient event management strategies and tactics.
“In every issue of the Middle East Point of View publication and App, we stress on the region’s most strategic, talked about and buzz-worthy topics. Our Deloitte subject matter and industry leaders lend their expert views on matters of importance to our region and our clients. Of note in this issue are the pieces on whistleblowing, big data, risk and cyber-attacks, oil production, Islamic Finance, and effective management practices”, said Rana Ghandour Salhab, Communication partner at Deloitte Middle East.
