HR and Employee Relations professionals deal with employee complaints all the time. But do you know what to do when a complaint requires an investigation, or even how to identify what kinds of complaints should give rise to an investigation? If you don’t, you’re not alone—many professionals have not had the proper training in how to conduct effective investigations.
Join author and expert speaker Natalie Ivey, MBA, SPHR, SHRM-SCP and HR Acuity CEO Deb Muller in this interactive session to improve your skills as an investigator, gain a better understanding of the HR investigation process and acquire valuable tips and best practices.
