Got a Concern?

Our Firm’s values and professional standards are at the core of everything we do. We are committed to operating with integrity and upholding the highest level of ethical standards, for ourselves, our colleagues, and our communities.

Open, honest communication is an expectation at our Firm, not an exception. If you have a concern about potential misconduct or violations of laws, policies, values or professional conduct, you can raise your concern to Firm managers or leadership. However, there may be times when you would prefer to use an alternative channel. In those situations, Got a Concern? is available.

Got a Concern? is available for anyone including colleagues, clients, advisors, former colleagues, applicants, service providers and other third parties. You can a raise concern verbally via telephone or in writing through the webform.

Reports raised through Got a Concern? are received by NAVEX, an independent party, and handled as confidentially as possible. NAVEX will not investigate cases; rather they will transmit any concerns and questions directly to McKinsey, so that we can take the necessary steps.

While we encourage you to identify yourself when raising a concern, you may be able to make an anonymous report. However, if you let us know who you are and how to reach you, we may be able to do a better job of investigating your concern. In some countries, applicable law may prohibit anonymous reporting or may only allow reports on defined category of violations. We may need to handle your report accordingly.

If you make a report, you can follow up on the status of your report using your report key and password.

You should feel comfortable raising concerns. We prohibit retaliation against anyone who seeks advice, raises a concern, or participates in an investigation. If you feel you have been subject to retaliation, you may use Got a Concern? or, if you are a McKinsey colleague, you may raise this with a manager, or a people function representative.

Please note:

Where legally required, we will promptly notify any person who is the subject of a report made through Got a Concern? except where notice needs to be delayed ensuring the integrity of an investigation and preservation of relevant information. Where we know your identity, we will seek not to disclose it unless necessary or legally required.

The information you supply may result in decisions that affect employees of McKinsey and other third parties involved in the relevant incident. We ask you to provide only information that you have reasonable grounds to believe is accurate. If you intentionally provide inaccurate or misleading information this could result in disciplinary action or legal consequences.
