Internal Investigations: The Risks and Benefits
An Internal investigation can be beneficial to an organization for any number of reasons. Some of the most common reasons are to identify the root cause of an inefficient process, figure out who's responsible for a mistake, identify if someone is stealing company resources or time, and to review company policies. There are also times when an Internal investigation is necessary to protect the company from any legal consequences - also known as self-policing.
The first concern an organization may have when deciding to conduct an internal investigation is the risk of a leak. When an individual, the media, or the government receives information from an internal investigation, it can be damaging to the company's brand. The reason for this is because those who are not involved in the investigation may decide to take their business elsewhere as a result of the findings.
Another risk is that a poorly-conducted investigation can lead to a so-called witch hunt, where people are investigated for any perceived wrongdoing generating a lot of anxiety, bad feelings, and sometimes even false accusations. This often leads to long-term consequences for the company’s workplace culture by generating ill feelings, distrust, and anger which can result in retaliation or resignations.
In order to help reduce this risk, working with seasoned experts who not only understand investigations, but who understand the intricacies of running a business can save a lot of time and worry. Organizations should establish strict guidelines governing what can be said and who can be interviewed by those conducting the investigation. Non-disclosure agreements are an absolute must when working with 3rd parties, and should be signed prior to any engagement. Establishing a clear chain of command and chain of custody for the investigative report once it is delivered will also help streamline any remediation process and reduce the likelihood of leaks.
Often times an internal investigation is an organization's last option. Protecting the company's future while not completely upending the company's culture can be a difficult balancing act. However, when done properly an internal investigation will allow a company to better understand what happened following an incident and identify the best strategies for preventing future problems. If a company makes a commitment to conducting investigations when evidence of misconduct is found, they are less likely to face lawsuits or experience unexpected losses due to theft or fraud.
Simply put, if your business has been affected by an internal threat, you can’t afford to ignore the problem. Internal threats affect every business, of every size. Without proper safeguards your company could be the next news headline. Our investigative experts are here to help ensure that never happens. For over 30 years we've helped some of the most recognizable brands in the world protect their most vital assets. Never lose another night's sleep worrying "what-if." Our experts will help you anticipate and a navigate risk before it becomes a crisis, so you can focus on your business. Click below to learn more about our internal investigation services.
