This session will address the intricacies of investigative work that often remain elusive for a designated human resources investigator. This session will assist an assigned investigator whether they are a fulltime human resources department employee or an ad hoc/external service provider.
Extensive investigative work requires two companion efforts. These include a global understanding of the merits of the organization's needs (preferred outcomes of the process), as well as a neutrality in the fact finding and interviewing methodology that is used. The ability to master this balance insures that the final investigative report and/or recommendations provide a clear path for resolving the original matter. This session will assist attendees in aligning these needs and creating their own action plan for enhanced investigative projects.
Why Should You Attend:
Human resources investigations are often the most tedious and time consuming aspects of the work assignments required by professionals in this field. Investigative needs arise when there are both allegations of misconduct n the part of individuals, as well as criticism of the overall organization and its inability to proctor leadership decision processes. Poorly executed investigations often result in more complex problems for an organization rather than resulting in the restoration of confidence in the actions of all concerned. This session will cover fundamental as well as advanced recommendations for performing high quality investigations.
