Regardless of how investigations into misconduct are carried out within an organization, by whom and according to which procedures, it is important to have clear principles and to identify risks.
Lantero helps customers to assess the extent to which external help is needed, during the entire process or as support if there is a heightened risk for a conflict of interests.
Allowing external investigators to assess the case is a good way to avoid conflicts of interest. Lantero provides a high level of service through its network of investigators. Mostly, Lantero works with lawyers to ensure that investigators have specialist skills and work in compliance with the Swedish Bar Association’s guidelines. However, depending on the organization, other investigators may be more appropriate.
Lantero’s approach means the customer does not need to pay to keep qualified investigative competence available, as the external investigators cost nothing until they begin working.
Irrespective of whether the investigation is carried out internally or externally, Lanteros’s system provides a structure for the assignment. The discloser provides information using a reporting form that makes supporting documentation clear and investigatable. The management tool drives the process forward, defines the questions to be answered, incorporates peer review into the process, etc.
