A lot of diligence has to go into writing investigative reports

 

When writing investigative reports in an organization, the person in charge has to show utmost diligence. A properly researched, well-articulated investigative report has the power of ridding the organization of a bad employee. On the other hand, if due diligence has not gone into writing investigative reports or if the employee writing the investigative reports is prejudiced or biased, it ends up marring the career prospects of a good employee. Further, badly written investigative reports can give the aggrieved employee the opportunity to proceed legally against the employer, which results in a number of unnecessary and avoidable troubles.

The person writing investigative reports has to show the right attributes while doing so. This is because the investigative report is the final piece of written evidence that the organization is producing to justify its actions, whether punitive or otherwise, against the said employee. This is the document that everyone who matters, right from the immediate manager to the Board member, to a court of law, if the situation arises, is exposed to. This is the crucial piece that serves as the basis for action, which is why following the due process while writing investigative reports becomes all the more important.

Show the findings as they are

Moreover, if the report misses something that actually happened at the investigation, no one is going to come to know about it, because what is not reflected in the report does not exist to the people who use the report as a basis for taking action. So, writing investigative reports in the right manner becomes all the more important.
