One of the not-so-fun things to do when you’re in business is to analyze risk management. This type of analysis can cover a wide range of unwanted exposure that could derail your efforts. For many, it is something that takes a back seat to what they may feel to be more pressing issues in the business world and instead give primary focus to their marketing and sales departments. Sadly, thinking in this way could do more damage to the bottom line than any gains they might make with a good marketing plan.

As the #MeToo movement continues to reverberate across industries, the message is clear that sexual harassment training should be priority for all employees, not just managers and supervisors. Recently, New York City and New York State strengthened their anti-harassment laws to mandate training for all employees, supervisors and managers.

It wasn’t that long ago that a new field of ethics and ethical studies began. In the 1960’s, bioethics came onto the scene as medical science advanced. There was great fear that doctors would “play God” with new and experimental treatments. The field grew in prominence soon after as genetic research advanced. Bioethicists discussed everything from “designer babies” to the source of fetal tissue for research, from transplants to physician assisted suicide. But the bottom line was simple – as science advanced so did man’s ethos.
My daughter is 5 now, and by the time she was 2, she started to develop an understanding of what “fairness” is. I think the desire to be treated ‘fairly’ is inherent to our human nature. And as a member of the ethics and compliance community, whether your department is legal, compliance, human resources, or something else, you have a responsibility to your constituents to create an investigation process that is as fair, transparent, consistent and unbiased as possible. I’ve found that even if your employees do not like the outcome of the investigation or the answer to their question, they are far more likely to respect it if they know they are treated like everyone else.
Here are some HR investigation protocol tips to help you create a consistent investigation process and ultimately build a culture of trust.
