Workplace Inquiries and Assessments

An inquiry is used to assess workplace dynamics. Inquiries are conducted if it is suspected that underlying tensions exist between colleagues or inappropriate behaviours may be taking place, before the situation escalates and a formal complaint is made. iHR Australia’s services are objective, independent and rigorous.

When an Inquiry or Assessment is the right response

Your organisation may need to initiate an inquiry or assessment if:

  • You suspected that underlying tensions or inappropriate behaviours are at play
  • You suspect a matter could escalate and you need to act
  • The matter could not be handled objectively if addressed internally, or the organisation does not have suitable skills or resources available
  • Your in-house HR person feels uncomfortable or unable to undertake the process objectively
  • The matter involves senior employees
  • The outcome of the inquiry will probably be subject to external review
  • It is required of your organisation by a third party such as WorkCover, WorkSafe or an insurer.
