When complaints of harassment and bullying are
made in an organisation it is in everyone’s interests to investigate
and resolve the situation as soon as possible. We recommend that organisations
have a Dignity at Work policy in place which includes
both an informal and formal complaints procedure. In cases where a
formal complaint has been made, or where informal efforts to resolve
a situation have not had the necessary effect it often makes sense
to involve an external, impartial specialist to investigate the case.
At Diversity Dynamics we have a network of associates with investigations
skills and considerable experience in handling the most sensitive
and complex cases. At short notice, we can visit your organisation,
interview all involved parties, establish the facts and produce a
written report outlining our findings. Where there is a case to answer,
Line Management and HR within the organisation can then use the report
to decide next steps and initiate the appropriate disciplinary proceedings
if necessary. If we find there is no substantive case to answer, we
will still provide a detailed report and make recommendations of steps
you can take to ensure the situation does not arise in their future.
This might include identifying development needs for the parties involved,
or recommending improvements to internal policies and procedures.
If you want to talk to us about a investigating
a particular case or if you are interested in retaining our services
for future cases which may arise, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
or telephone the office on 01786 446707.
