When a workplace issue involves key leaders or potentially serious violations, a prompt, impartial investigation is essential. Using a third party to do the investigation communicates that the leadership is serious about the report and cares about its employees. An impartial investigation can also be a crucial step in safeguarding the business against future litigation. Courts and juries appreciate when a business promptly follows up with a serious investigation.
Our approach is team based. We’ve gathered a group that includes trained investigators, legal experts, HR experts and experts at impartial interviewing and data gathering. On sexual harassment investigations we always send a team with a male and a female to do all interviews. We tap the knowledge and experience of the full team and there is always a legal review of the report at the end. Our investigations are done with the upmost confidentiality, sensitivity, objectivity, and professionalism.
