In this training program, attendees will learn how to write a factual, solid, representative report of an internal investigation that will withstand scrutiny and provide appropriate information to decision makers.
Since reports are often read by adversaries as well as not only internally within the organization, it’s important that reports as an overview of the investigation show a logical factual representation of actions and decisions.
Why You Should Attend:
Anyone who performs workplace investigations needs to be able to write their findings in a report such that it becomes a written presentation of the information discovered in their investigation.
It is imperative for a report that is used to document and communicate information to its readers be of as high a quality as the investigation itself. Because without a high quality investigatory report it can be hard to demonstrate the employer was taking appropriate investigatory steps or made factual decisions, even if in fact they did.
