Responding to Workplace Complaints and Conducting Investigations for Organizations

Responding to Workplace Complaints and Conducting Investigations for Organizations

This event, hosted by the SRE Network team was held on:

Wednesday,  August 17 at 10 am PT/1 pm ET (60 minutes).

TOPIC: Does your organization know what to do when you receive a complaint regarding workplace misconduct? How do you assess whether what is reported should involve an internal review or third-party external investigation? Rahel Bayar, the founder of The Bayar Group, will cover topics such as: determining when an internal vs. external investigation is recommended, navigating a trauma-informed investigative practice – including investigative questions and collection of information, and how to best structure your investigative practice.

WHO ATTENDED: This training was for senior-level professionals (including HR, operations, and executives) of SRE Network member organizations responsible for responding to workplace incidents.

A former sex crimes and child abuse prosecutor and former managing director of the sexual misconduct consulting and investigations division of a global investigative company, Rahel Bayar is a sought-after keynote speaker, trainer, workshop facilitator, and consultant. Rahel is trusted by companies, K-12 schools, camps, and organizations across the country to deliver inspiring abuse and harassment prevention training and inspire those she meets to work collaboratively to help each organization work to create a safe space for all.

Did You Know?
Did you know all SRE Network Members complete an SRE Network Standards Self-Assessment (SSA) on an annual basis? The SSA helps organizations identify areas for growth and also helps our Network identify opportunities for additional training and resources. The October 2021 SRE Self-Assessment Report found that providing training for the individuals who conduct investigations into discrimination and harassment at their organizations was much-needed:

  • 33% of members reported those individuals were only “somewhat” trained.
  • 11% of members reported those individuals had received no training at all.
