For corporations large and small, maintaining integrity within the organization is critical to growth and success. Unethical and illegal conduct within the ranks can jeopardize the future of the business and potentially entangle it in criminal charges.
Proactively addressing potential problems through an internal investigation serves a number of important purposes. The business can root out violations of law or policy and effectively deal with them before they turn into a public scandal. Additionally, a successful internal investigation can potentially avert criminal charges and foster an atmosphere of transparency and compliance.
