These training sessions will provide you with the tools necessary to recognize complaints that need to be investigated, conduct fair and thorough investigations, and get your company back on track after an investigation. Topics include deciding when to investigate, developing a strategic plan, conducting witness interviews, documenting the investigation, reaching a conclusion, taking appropriate action after the investigation, and restoring the workplace to optimal productivity. Patti has conducted more than 1,200 workplace investigations and uses her experience to help participants become both master sleuths and expert problem-solvers.

The session focuses on the business advantages of having a respectful, diverse workforce and can be incorporated into a company’s overall diversity initiatives.
