Conducting an internal investigation has always been a complex process with many different moving parts. However, companies tried very hard to conduct the necessary investigations and in a structured, transparent way. The sooner the investigation concluded, the better.
These days, COVID-19 has shaken up the way businesses are run and how internal investigations are conducted. From different working practices to changing corporate priorities, we are still trying to figure out what the new normal will be.
That being said, incidences that require a full internal investigation must still be conducted in a timely fashion. In addition, many of the “old-world” protocols need to be maintained including being sensitive, discreet, and timely.
The difference now, unfortunately, is that COVID-19 protocols have disrupted standard operating procedures.
An unprecedented amount of businesses have been forced to have many if not all their staff working from out of the office. Many companies find it difficult if not impossible to carry out any kind of effective compliance monitoring on their remote staff.
Needless to say, this raises the potential for unethical and fraudulent behavior.
PiPro investigators offer a variety of services that can help ensure that employees follow the same standards of ethics and safety while working out of the office. This includes employee surveillance, social media monitoring, verification of court records and more.
