What we believe in

Even before compliance became a buzzword across industries, promoting an open and legally compliant company culture was at the core of EQS Group’s activities. We at EQS Group believe that integrity and radical transparency create the most important corporate capital: trust.

This is precisely why EQS Group decided to venture into the area of compliance by creating a state-of-the-art digital whistleblowing solution.

When Achim Weick founded EQS Group – then EquityStory – in 2000, the company’s primary focus was on building Investor Relations products. As an investment banker, Achim’s own experiences of working in a toxic environment influenced a great deal in the founding of EQS Group and our subsequent journey into building whistleblowing solutions.

A strong, positive corporate culture rooted in transparency and integrity has always been our priority and is reflected in our values and work principles.

Trust is vital for any organization, where employees feel encouraged to report corporate misconduct without feeling unsafe or threatened.

20 years of experience

EQS Group prides itself in its commitment in delivering secure, high-quality standard digitalized solutions, while also meeting the highest standards of IT security and data protection.

Over the years, we were able to merge forces with competent solutions in Europe, making it possible for us to better serve our customers’ needs.

With a combined experience and expertise in the field of compliance and whistleblowing, EQS Group is now the first and the leading provider in the EU and pioneer of a digital whistleblowing system. Our customers include international corporations as well as medium-sized companies, government agencies, healthcare institutions and NGOs.
