How organizations respond when allegations of inappropriate workplace behavior arise reflects their values and has the potential to influence employee morale and the workplace environment. Employers are held responsible for conducting a thorough and prompt review of employee complaints; however, investigations that are managed internally face several challenges. Employees routinely perceive them as biased, and HR professionals can be placed in an awkward position, especially if senior-level or management personnel are involved. HR professionals also have a vested interest in protecting the important working relationships they have with client groups and often don’t have the resources they need to conduct these time-sensitive investigations.
