“This is one of the most informative trainings on how to manage, compile, script and hopefully successfully, investigate findings,” wrote the Regional Safety Manager at Fulton Hogan about our annual Workplace Investigation and Compliance Workshop last year. “I highly rate this workshop and the trainers.”
As a result of such positive feedback we received, we are bringing back this practical skills workshop in November 2016, to again allow our trainers to take you through best practices from when an investigation is required through to how to finalise an investigation. 
Our experienced and engaging trainers will cover topics in 2016 on the following; but this time will also include several dedicated Q&A periods and scenario based group work: 
  • Once an investigation is required, what do we need to prepare for now? How do we make sure our investigation will meet the principles of procedural fairness? 
  • For the interviews, do you have any tips on ensuring we conduct effective interviews? Can we go through some of the expected and unexpected scenarios that can happen during the interviews?
  • To finalise an investigation, what should our investigation report include and what should be communicated to different parties? Are there any final tips on determining the outcomes, and what if adverse action and/or unfair dismissal claims arise? 
NEW for the workshop in 2016 is also a 45minute closing Q&A session where our panel of speakers will go through your concerns surrounding:
  • What are some things that go wrong during a workplace investigation; is there anything that is usually overlooked or missed we need to remember? What common questions do you get from firms going through an investigation, and what is your response? 

* Delegates will be asked to pre-submit Q&A questions prior to the event, upon registration, for this session to ensure your challenges will be discussed.

NEW – ITS ALL ABOUT THE PRACTICAL WORK! In small groups, interactively go through expected and unexpected scenarios during interviews PLUS pre-submit questions for a final Q&A discussion.

“This workshop provided actual practical advice from legal professionals that was very relevant for HR practitioners,” said HR Advisor from Bunzl of past workshop editions. Review the enclosed agenda to also see how your registration will involve you in small group practical discussions on expected and unexpected scenarios during interviews.
