    Please join us for our upcoming September meeting for a double header of learning!

    TOPIC 1:    The Walking Dead:  Identifying and Removing Disengaged Employees

    Actively disengaged employees have an extreme negative effect on a company’s productivity and culture.  HR professionals need to be able to quickly identify these employees’ most common behaviors before this negativity can spread to others or cause serious damage.  You’ll be introduced to the tools to identify employees who are adversely influencing their organization’s dynamic and the steps to remove them.

    TOPIC 2:  Investigation Interviews:  How to Extract Crucial Evidence from Workplace Incident Witnesses

    Following a workplace incident, investigation interviews provide HR professionals with information necessary to make fair decisions and take appropriate action. In this session, participants will collaborate in the deconstruction of effective investigation interviews in order to apply best practices in their workplace.  Strategies for conducting investigation interviews will be presented using case studies and group discussions. Participants will immediately apply these strategies by participating in example investigation scenarios.

    PRESENTER:  Patrick Colvin is the Founder and CEO of C-Suite Investigative Solutions, a consulting firm specializing in workplace investigations and termination risk analysis. Patrick has extensive experience in conducting workplace investigations, and is often referred to as the maven of investigations because of his ability to diagnose workplace issues and provide proven solutions to organizations.  As a member of the Forbes HR Council while serving as a SHRM Certification Ambassador, Patrick’s insights have been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, SHRM Online, Fast Company, Entrepreneur Magazine, GlassDoor, Monster, Zenefits, and People HR.
