Developing your skills to conduct a workplace investigation
You may work in Human Resources or you’ve risen through the ranks to be a director or manager. And while you’ve gained important experience along the way, that doesn’t necessarily mean you have the skills to conduct a proper workplace investigation.
Training matters. Skill development is important. Anyone assigned to carry out an internal investigation should be trained to ensure they are following proper process and due diligence to achieve a transparent, unbiased investigation.
