InvestiPro’s Platform Benefits
InvestiPro inspires confidence in the hectic world of HR. From new hires to VP’s, it helps build a solid foundation for these professionals to perform compliant work, and often ends up improving workplace culture.
“We have a different mentality when it comes to investigations,” explains Barbato. “I’ve really spent a lot of years trying to develop a way to get a positive outcome out of these investigations in the workforce, to lay a strong foundation for company culture through accountability and trust.”
With the average time cost of a manual workplace investigation at 80-160 hours, InvestiPro’s ability to automate and streamline the process is appealing to anyone in charge of performing these investigations.
Users receive unlimited investigations, guided interviews, online training and investigator support.
Integrated features in the platform support the entire investigation process, from filing a complaint to a final determination, and include:
Record employee complaints
The InvestiPro platform asks the questions necessary to clearly document the details of the complaint and the parties involved in the incident(s) that require an investigation.
The Plan automatically populates using the details in the complaint, and allows for customization. Legal notices are created for each participant in the investigation.
Guided Interview Questions
The interview sections are customized for the complainants, accused, and witnesses. Relevant questions are provided, clarifying questions may be added, and a credibility assessment process is included in each interview.
The assessment page provides an overview of the responses and credibility observations, and asks the necessary questions required to determine if there is sufficient evidence to substantiate the complaint.
The determination page recaps the information behind the final determination for review by the decision maker. Suggested corrective and preventative actions are listed for each party and final notices are generated for the victim(s) and accused only. A fully documented final report is provided at the conclusion of the investigation.
