Investigations depend on collecting and analyzing evidence. Documentation is an important part of any workplace investigation. It is used to record who said what and when, to outline issues and investigation steps, to synthesize evidence and ensure nothing falls through the cracks. The final report is where all the pieces come together. But many investigators aren’t sure how to best document their investigations. They write notes without knowing what to record and what to leave out and cobble together reports with no plan or organization.
