Our investigation services include

  • An externally validated and accredited workplace investigation and interview meeting qualification

Benefits of working with Intersol Global

 

Workplace investigations, meetings, and conversations (interviews) that are conducted professionally and are quality assured, deliver clear business benefits and outcomes including:

  • Protecting people, brands, and reputation
  • Preserving the health and well-being of all stakeholders
  • Underpinning your institution’s values and culture
  • Identify, reduce, and manage risk and increase public confidence
  • Reassure the regulators and avoid sanctions

Conversely, failure to quality assure and professionally undertake those meetings can attract adverse consequences for your organisation, causing:

  • increased direct costs, wasted time, and stakeholder disengagement
  • loss of critical information and exposure to risk
  • irreparable brand, institutional, and personal damage
  • damaged internal and external credibility, even regulatory or criminal sanction
