Rola-Cola or Coca-Cola Investigation Training - Your Shout! What's Peter Kay got to do with investigation training? Not a lot other than he shares a Lancashire heritage (and some would say physical profile) with our Director of Learning & Development, John Crook. BUT the similarity doesn't stop there. Just as you can have a cheap drink you can have cheap training. Our philosophy at Intersol Global is that you get what you pay for, for those that remember "Never mind the width, feel the quality"! This is a great day for the Intersol team as it marks the completion of their [...]

Business as (un)usual - Our online solution for workplace discipline investigations and virtual investigation meetings. It is a sad reality that even in times of catastrophic crisis there remains a demand to conduct workplace investigations. If anything it is even more vital that they are conducted with skill, sensitivity, and empathy, the crisis faced by all is challenging enough without added strains of inconsiderate and insensitive  investigation. It is equally critical that investigations already underway or awaiting outcomes are not neglected or overlooked, adding additional strain on those involved; long-term well-being and mental health must remain central to decision-making. Business continuity, [...]

Reviewing the advice published by McAllister Olivarius and The 1752 Group a simple and obvious measure to improve service delivery to victims of sexual misconduct that might amount to a criminal offence came to mind and I can't believe we didn't think of it before. Maybe because sometimes you're so professionally absorbed that you need to take a step back to see the woods for the trees! If YOU decide to report such an incident to your institution and YOU decide that you want it investigated by them under their discipline code insist that the interviewer has a specialist qualification in [...]

AMOSSHE Winter Conference - Mental Health and Wellbeing  Intersol are delighted to sponsor AMOSSHE and their valuable work throughout 2020 and our CEO, Ian Hynes, and CFO, Philip Adlem, have been busy making the final plans to attend their sold-out Winter Conference in Bath later this week. The dreadful cost to mental health and wellbeing of NOT conducting discipline investigations empathetically, thoroughly, and fairly to determine reliable outcomes is often incalculable. Those adversely affected by inappropriate investigation methods and process not only include reporting and reported students but extends to those members of staff charged with the heavy responsibility of conducting [...]
