The Denver Local Circle of the Association of Workplace Investigators meets Thursday, September 3rd from 4:30 to 6:00pm at Liz Rita’s office -2401 15th St., Set 300. After socializing, we will share and discuss investigator engagement agreements. This is a great opportunity for internal investigators to learn more about AWI and engaging third-party investigators. Email Liz or me to register: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. This invite modifies the following earlier post.
The expectation of appropriate investigations at workplaces and on campus has required employers and schools to build internal human resources to meet the need. Frankly, all situations that need investigation do not justify retaining an outside investigator. These facts make associations and resources that promote the profession to all levels of experience and would-be investigators invaluable. I am a sustaining member of the Association of Workplace Investigators. I serve on its Guiding Principles and Member Benefits committees and work with my colleague Elizabeth Rita to convene the AWI Denver Local Circle. Check out www.aowi.org to learn more about this excellent organization and it valuable resources. The Denver Local Circle meets bi-monthly and non-members are welcomed to attend to learn more. Just contact Liz or me to register.
The Workplace Investigations Group led by Lorene Schaefer is another excellent resource. WIG offers a national directory of investigators with at least ten-years experience.
There are many decisions to make toward conducting an “appropriate”investigation. This is a developing profession that is well served by individuals and groups dedicated to promoting best practices and investigation integrity.
