How (and Why) to Set Up an Anonymous Tip Line

How (and Why) to Set Up an Anonymous Tip Line

All kinds of organizations require feedback. And almost always, some of the most important feedback or information is also the hardest to get. In many cases, this is because employees, clients, or other involved parties don’t feel comfortable sharing the information. This is where anonymous tip lines come in.

You may not think that this applies to your organization, but it’s been proven over and over that the best way to be aware of sensitive situations or gather people’s true feelings about something is to allow them to provide it anonymously.

As a landlord or a property manager, hurricane season can be a bit of a scary time if you live in Florida or anywhere else on the Gulf or Atlantic coast where hurricanes are a major issue every year. But if you take the proper steps to prepare yourself and your tenants, hurricane season doesn’t have to be so intimidating. So, in this guide, we’ll discuss a few tips to help you prepare for hurricane season, and prevent damage to your property. 1.
