special ombudsman and independent integrity programsAffiliated Monitors provides an individual to serve as a Special Ombudsman or Independent Integrity Officer for companies in need of an independent resource who will allow and encourage open and honest communications and who will not tolerate retaliation.  This service is important for businesses in which staff, customers or others are reluctant to report issues, concerns or even raise questions for fear of some form of retaliation or adverse action (real or assumed) that would be taken against them if they spoke up.  Affiliated Monitors has served as a Special Independent Integrity Officer (SIIO) tasked with facilitating robust, open communications so as to build trust and confidence between management and staff.  This program can also serve as a mechanism for staff to seek guidance, ask questions, raise concerns or suggestions and to be kept informed of developments that may occur as a result of the communications.
