​A reliable and competent investigations’ capability is critical to an organisation. Poor investigations damage company reputations and cost fortunes in legal costs when they go wrong. Common problems are slip-shod investigations policies and delegations, ‘presumption bias’ and a general lack of quality investigation skills.

Therefore, we present a focused and productive program in investigations skills and reporting; designed to equip and support all managers and non-dedicated investigators in contexts of investigating compliance breaches and/or any type of misconduct.

Participants will learn:

  • To avoid the common pitfalls in investigations

  • New skills in assessing insider-threats from those familiar with the organisation’s systems and to what levels

  • To respond to misconduct complaints / grievances appropriately and supportively

  • How to appraise information and extract applicable evidence. Fact-checking and ‘measuring’ liability objectively

  • Excellent (compliance) investigations case management (including GDPR)

  • How to ‘measure’ liability and set out quality reports to support decision makers
