______________________________________________________________________________________________________________
This 9 Contact Hour | 1.5 day program is an abbreviated version of our 2-day and 3-day workshops.  Attendees will learn the key aspects of the investigative process, how to determine if an employee complaint is just “drama” or a serious issue that requires investigation, and provides basic knowledge of how to conduct investigations, including how to write an investigation report. The 1.5 day format does not include a skills practice workshop.

Available Program Formats:
In-person, Instructor-led Classroom Program:
Can be facilitated on site at your organization or at a designated training site, such as a hotel or conference center.
If an in-person classroom program, the schedule options are: 8:00-4:30 pm, 8:30-5:00, or 9:00 – 5:30 on Day 1 and 8:00-Noon or 8:30-12:30 on Day 2.
If a different schedule is needed, such as scheduling evening or weekend sessions, we are happy to work with you to accommodate your team’s needs.

Virtual Program:  The schedule for the virtual program will depend upon your organization’s specific needs. We can accommodate any scheduling request, such as breaking the training dates out over several days to minimize behind-the-screen time.  Additionally, we can schedule “repeater” sessions in order to divide the group if not all can attend one session and to accommodate team members who are operating in different time zones. Please note the maximum number of attendees for a virtual program is 15, so if your group is larger it will require scheduling multiple sessions.

To obtain pricing for this 9 Contact Hour | 1.5-Day HR Investigations Training Workshop for your team, we will need to have you provide answers to the following questions: 

  1. In-person classroom program, virtual program, or a blended format?
  2. If an in-person, classroom program is desired, how many attendees will you have and how many sessions will be needed to train your entire team? As an example, if your headcount of attendees is 30 but the group must be divided into two classes because of operational needs, the total number of training days will be four vs. two as we would divide the total group of 30 into two classes of 15 people.  Please keep in mind that if you need to divide the group into two (or even three or four sessions if you have a very large group to train) we recommend scheduling classes on consecutive days.  As an example, Group 1 consisting of 15 people would be scheduled on Monday-Tuesday and Group 2 on Wednesday-Thursday of the same week. Scheduling consecutively will minimize your cost as our instructor will only incur airfare expense once, to/from the training location vs. having to travel back to the training site at a different time.
  3. What is your budget for the training? According to the latest Training Industry report, the average cost organizations spend on training ranges between $1,111-$1,678 annually, per employee.  Our programs are priced on a flat, per training program basis vs. a per person basis.  However, an average cost per person for our programs ranges between $995-$2,195, depending upon the number of contact hours in a particular program and other variables such as location, number of attendees, etc.
  4. When do you need to schedule the training?Please note that for many organizations Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday are generally the most desirable days of the week to schedule training.  We  organization needs to schedule training over a weekend, such as to align with a corporate retreat or conference, we can deliver training
  5. Your training location or do you want to send your team to our training location in greater Orlando, Florida area? 
    If you elect to have your team come to us vs. our instructor coming to your site, we deliver our training programs either at the Halifax River Yacht Club in Daytona Beach, Florida or at the Walt Disney World Dolphin resort in Orlando, Florida.
  6. If a virtual program is desired, how many total attendees will you have?
  7. How many sessions will be needed in order to train your entire team?Please note that time zones as well as the total number of attendees will affect the number of sessions that need to be scheduled. Maximum number of attendees for each virtual class is a total of 15.
  8. Who will be responsible for approving the training agreement?After initial discussions to work out details for scheduling training, we provide you with an agreement that captures all dates, times, and details.  We will need to know whose name will be required to put on the agreement.
