Cultural Assessments and Internal Investigations

Culture matters at corporations, now more than ever. Cultural weaknesses can lead to internal complaints, shareholder requests, regulatory inquiries, media attention, lawsuits, and even criminal charges. Government enforcers are looking beyond specific instances of wrongdoing to scrutinize the underlying culture and how it contributed to the mistakes. Proactive assessment to identify and arrest potential problems can save money and reputations.

A positive culture doesn’t just prevent bad behavior; it boosts the bottom line, because engaged employees are more productive employees. Successful organizations review their culture to identify existing or potential issues, propose measures to improve the employee experience, minimize the risk of complaints or misconduct, and develop preparedness plans to address problematic scenarios.

Drawing on a deep bench of experienced investigators and two former C-suite leaders of a global corporation, we possess the first-hand experience and discretion to steer your organization through a practical, results-oriented cultural audit or internal investigation. Our resulting recommendations will identify how and where to implement measures to correct broader vulnerabilities in tone, processes, or enforcement.

We also operate with independence and efficiency, utilizing small teams and an eye towards minimizing disruption so that your organization can maintain focus on what it does best.
