Internal Investigations 101: Education and Training

An internal investigation is an important mechanism an organization can use to address an allegation of wrongdoing, determine legal liability, identify individuals or parties with culpability, comply with regulatory requirements, develop corrective measures and enhance operational efficiencies. Buckner is pleased to continue its blog series highlighting best practices, strategies and techniques that can be used by organizational leaders and counsel during an internal investigation. Today’s post will discuss the importance of proper education and training for an internal investigator. Specifically, investigations conducted by poorly trained individuals will produce bad results–which may create legal issues for the organization conducting the inquiry. Thus, it is important for an investigator to have a core skill set; acquire formal education and training; and receive sufficient investigative experience. Further, experienced investigators should continue learning and acquiring new skills and knowledge through online resources, in-person classes, book research and collaboration with other professionals. The ultimate goal should be to become a more efficient and effective investigator.
