Confidence of HR professionals increase from security expert’s review of book
Conducting an Internal Investigation can be wrought with pitfalls, but with the recently published book, “How to Conduct Internal Investigations: A Practical Guide for Human Resource Professionals”, Natalie Ivey, President and CEO of Results Performance Consulting, has brought order to this chaos. The book not only holds favor within the Human Resource Management community, following a positive review from the prestigious national organization Society for Human Resource Management, but it just received a highly regarded review from the Security Management community as well. SECURITY MANAGEMENT is the award-winning publication of ASIS International, the preeminent international organization for security professionals with more than 38,000 members worldwide.
Yan Byalik said in the September 2014 issue of SECURITY MANAGEMENT Magazine, “The book’s target audience is human resource professionals, and they will find this work to be informative and complete for their duties in investigating employee conduct and complaints.” According to Byalik, the book “is easy to read and packed with information that is relevant for both disciplines.” The book shows in four parts how to conduct an investigation through cataloging evidence and testimony, maintaining the chain of custody, court testimony and understanding the laws pertaining to the type of claim being asserted.
“Practitioners will find many parts of this book to be useful both for general background information and in handling specific internal issue incidents.” said Byalik, who is the Top Guard security manager for Tidewater Community College and the chair of the ASIS Hampton Roads Chapter.
Additionally the book contains useful forms used to document evidence, flow charts of interview questions and tips on how to handle specific complaints. Ms. Ivey is excited about this review because “it increases the confidence level of HR and other management professionals. The reader knows that this book is thorough and relevant based on the review of seasoned security professionals, who frequently handle various workplace investigations.”
