Whether it is in the public sector, academia or private industry, conducting fair and thorough investigations is becoming increasingly important. Whatever the field, if fact-finding is not done properly or the investigative process is – or is perceived to be – unfair, the consequences can be calamitous, leaving the organization conducting the investigation exposed, with its credibility and reputation in tatters. Botched investigations – especially botched workplace related investigations – inevitably cost time, money and disruption.
The Workplace Institute offers top-quality investigative courses and consulting delivered by experts. They are custom crafted to provide practical, case-based training for anyone involved in conducting investigations of any type, big or small.
