Misconduct allegations tend to arrive in batches and require a scalable response capacity. External investigations organizations provide response flexibility with a number of readily available investigators.
Apart from preventing escalation, timely response increases the quality of the evidence. Early statements received in harassment and sexual abuse investigations bear higher evidential value. These are found to be more comprehensive and accurate. In financial misconduct cases, a rapid response can prevent further damage and protect against loss of materials.
Investigations are prioritized undertakings and other assignments will get delayed once the investigation is on. Therefore, with outsourced investigations, also other assigned tasks will be delivered in timely fashion.
