The year 2020 hasn’t been easy for anyone. Although we were genuinely taken aback by the school closures, it helped open the doors to organisations where FaceUp can also help. Throughout the last year, we’ve had people from Czech, and foreign companies come up to us, mainly from HR departments as well as Compliance managers, who were looking for a simple solution to the new EU directive, while also trying to help their colleagues. This is when the team at FaceUp realised we needed to adjust the product and start helping companies too. The company version now helps employees report discrimination, bullying, mental health concerns, sexual harassment, COVID-19 related concerns etc. directly to the people, at their company, who know how to help.
In 2021, we want to continue growing – both in schools and companies, and we’re planning many improvements. So what can you expect from us next year?
1. A new feature for report sender
Follow up communication between the report sender and the administrators is so important! In order to prevent the reporter forgetting their unique PIN Code, it will now be automatically sent to their email address. The report senders will now be able to fill in their email address after sending a report, which will remain within the system and no one will gain access to it. Thereafter, reporters will be notified of any updates made to their report as well as any responses from the company administrators.
2. We protect everything – not once, but twice
Your company’s safety is our priority. That’s why you can now protect your company’s administration system with two-factor authentication. If you prefer to keep it simple, this feature can be turned off. However, the safety of your employees and company information is important, and that’s why we strongly recommend using this feature.
3. An easier and more unique company profile
You now have the chance to use an exclusive link that takes you right through to your company profile on FaceUp.com, which you can even put on your company webpage, for example in the form of a button.
4. You are never alone – our external partners are here to help
The first step in solving a problem or risk is identifying it. This is where FaceUp help you. However, the next step may involve an intervention that you need help to create. We have identified a list of external partners that you can trust to provide accurate advice.
5. We don’t take the new legal requirement lightly – we’ve got you covered
According to the new proposal of the whistleblowing protection law, it is required to keep specific information about each report, for the purpose of investigation. In the report’s details, you will now be able to find specific boxes that need to be filled out. This feature help you to be easily compliant with the law.
You can also look forward to:
With the continuing expansion of FaceUp, we’re also adding more localisations of the platform and we are preparing big things with our partners.

Whistleblowing - just a bureaucracy or an opportunity for your company?
