Conducting workplace 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. A properly conducted investigation - one that is prompt, thorough and impartial, can help defend a company should a lawsuit be filed later. By ensuring a fair investigative process, HR professionals also can help build morale and trust among employees.
