Conducting Effective HR Investigations

Conducting workplace human resource investigations is one of the most challenging duties that HR professionals must take on. Workforce demographics are shifting. New laws are constantly popping up. Managers make mistakes because they aren’t properly trained or they’re under pressure to resolve complaints quickly. Employees are more aware of their rights.  That makes it incredibly challenging for HR professionals to stay on top of their role in conducting the investigation.  

Attendees in this session will gain a greater understanding of how to ensure they complete a fair and in-depth investigation and learn the ten most common mistakes made by HR professionals when conducting an investigation. 

Key Objectives:

  • Understand how to complete a fair and in-depth investigation
  • Learn the 10 most common mistakes made when conducting an investigation
  • Establish the best way to communicate results and move forward
