Writing Investigative Reports - A Crucial Piece of a Professional Investigation - Webinar by TrainHR

A session at Russel Stuart

Thursday 18th April, 2013

10:00am to 11:00am

Overview : Learn how to write a factual, solid, representative report of an internal investigation that will withstand scrutiny and provide appropriate information to decision makers.

Why should you attend: 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. 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's imperative the 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!
