One of the best ways to show your employees that we care about them is to take action when they report improper behavior.
When thing go badly in the workplace, a robust investigative process and timely feedback can make a huge difference for the reporter.
No matter how long an employee works for us, they will vividly remember the time they reported wrongdoing and the ensuing investigation. It will stand as one of the most emotional moments of their career. Their courage to speak up should be rewarded with a thorough investigation and protection from retaliation.
