Complimentary Breakfast Briefing: He Said/She Said/They Said: But Who to Believe?

In workplace investigations, witnesses often contradict each other on key facts or they interpret those facts differently. As an investigator, you must decide whose version or interpretation of those facts you believe. How do you make that determination? Are you confident that your approach for assessing witness credibility results in correct findings?

The briefing also explores other factors that may influence an investigator’s decision making process including implicit/unconscious bias and provides steps to reduce those concerns.

Finally, this briefing uses real world examples and fact-based hypotheticals to sharpen your skill in making credibility assessments — an indispensable tool in your investigation tool kit.
