Managing Investigations

£350.00
for up to 15 delegates

A thorough investigation forms the bedrock of all disciplinary and grievance hearings, get this part wrong and everything that follows is built on sand. From our years of investigative experience, we will share what a good investigation entails, and how to deal with the twists and turns that a methodical investigation invariably unearths. We will also outline the investigative standards an Employment Tribunal expects.

Overview

Many situations in the workplace can give rise to an investigation. The investigating manager’s role is vital not only to decide if formal action may be appropriate but also a poor investigation can leave employers vulnerable to costly employment claims. So, this course will leave you feeling confident for when the time comes to undertake a fair and legal investigation.

Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course you will be able to:

  • Recognise when an investigation is necessary
  • Conduct an effective investigation and stay within the law
  • Handle difficult meetings and people
  • Produce an investigation report

Course Content

This course covers:

  • How to decide when an internal investigation is necessary
  • How to decide who should conduct an investigation
  • How to produce an investigation plan and manage the investigation process
  • How to manage difficult witnesses and maintain confidentiality
  • How to produce an investigation report and present findings

Resources Included

We will provide you with our bang-up-to-date handout and template pack. Prepared by the experts from Loates Management Training and our sister brand Loates HR Consultancy, these fully editable Microsoft Office documents will save you hours of research and typing pain once you return to your workplace.

Delivery Options

Due to all that Covid-19 malarkey we've become rather good at delivering our training online.

So, all our individual courses are now delivered as 2-hour online webinars, offering outstanding levels of flexibility, cost effectiveness, and efficient use of employee time.

These virtual sessions still have the discussions and exercises that we would have had in the classroom,  just slightly adapted and tailored to meet the online environment.

 

However, we love meeting all our clients face-to-face and getting to strut our stuff in the classroom with our whiteboards, tech, fab lunches, copious amounts of coffee and biscuits and lots of chatter.

So, if you group several courses together to form a programme, we can alternatively deliver them in-person, at either our site, your site, or an external venue.

Three 2-hour online sessions equate to one day of classroom delivery.

Super simple and transparent pricing.

You buy the whole training course for a single fixed price, then put as many delegates as you want on it, up to a maximum of 15.

Which gives you 2 hours of top quality training from less than £24 per person. Bargain!

Bundling Options

Can't decide which of our management training courses would best benefit your business? Well, why not consider a programme of courses?

We've specially selected various off-the-shelf combinations that we think would benefit particular types of employees and job roles.

Or alternatively, you can just pick & mix any of our courses to create your very own customised management training programme.

And what's more, by choosing a programme of six courses, you'll get them for the price of five!

Customisation Options

The management training courses and programmes listed here on our website are just a starting point to give you some idea of the kinds of things we can do. We can also work with you to fully align our existing course content with your company processes and objectives, or even come up with entirely new courses. We all about flexibility here, so if you'd like programmes with more courses, repeating programmes, hybrid online/classroom programmes, or something even more bespoke, just let us know.

We don't see our goal as simply delivering training, but rather as effecting real meaningful change within your business. Since a number of our trainers also work within our sister brand Loates HR Consultancy, we're used to working with our clients to help practically deliver the things we talk about during our training sessions in actual real-world scenarios. And we can help you with that too.

So, we can also supplement our training with followup support and mentoring from experienced practitioners to ensure that your course delegates are able to successfully apply their new skills and knowledge once they return to the workplace.

Just get in touch if you'd like to discuss these options further.
