    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
    Is it mandatory to appoint a confidant?

    Currently, a bill is pending approval in the Senate that would mandate all organizations with 10 or more employees to appoint a confidant. This law is expected to be enacted on July 1, 2024, or January 1, 2025.

    What are the benefits of hiring an external confidant?

    An external confidant offers independence and objectivity, which increases employee trust. They can ensure greater openness and safety within the organization, as employees feel freer to report problems without fear of repercussions.

    How does OnzeVertrouwenspersoon guarantee the confidentiality of reports?

    Our confidants have a legal duty of confidentiality and adhere to strict confidentiality protocols to ensure that all reports and conversations remain completely confidential.

    How quickly can an external confidant be deployed?

    We can provide a customized quote within 24 hours of request and quickly connect a suitable confidant to your organization. The exact time may vary depending on specific requirements and availability.

    What if an employee prefers to speak with a confidant of a different gender or a specific confidant?

    In principle, your organization chooses one confidant (or two for larger organizations) who best suits your needs. However, if an employee prefers a confdant of a different gender or someone else on our team, we can quickly switch and arrange a suitable replacement from our pool of experts. This ensures that every employee feels comfortable and optimally supported.
