YOU didn’t win the lottery. But your employees will.

Let’s just tell the truth and shame the devil …

#METOO is here to stay.

And yes, I know you’d probably rather choke on a grape than investigate employee complaints.

But how you handle investigations of your employees’ concerns and complaints frame their perceptions of you, the company, and the outcome of the investigation. And just as important, what they do next!


  • Investigations are disruptive, costly, and time consuming.
  • It can be tough identifying what issues to investigate.
  • You’re unsure how to evaluate the information gathered.
  • Asking the wrong questions – no matter how innocent the motives – could cost you.

You are expected to conduct timely and legally compliant investigations. There’s just one major problem. You’ve probably received little or no training about:

  • how to do an investigation
  • who to interview
  • what questions to ask
  • what to avoid
  • what to do once the investigation is complete.

Guess what?
You’ve found the solution.
