Trainings and Workshop




DATE: AUGUST 26-28, 2019






The Inter-Agency Working Group (IAWG) in partnership with OSACO is pleased to invite you to join the Effective Workplace Investigations Training Programme to be held in Nairobi from 26-28th August 2019.


OSACO works with Humanitarian organisations of all sizes to identify situations and opportunities where human risk factors and lax oversight may lead to staff engaging in misconduct. In addition to conducting and managing investigations into all forms of staff misconduct, OSACO specialises in the design and deliver of programmes aimed at providing the staff of our clients with the necessary skills and knowledge to conduct their own investigations on your behalf. Our programmes are designed by investigative experts and will train staff properly in the investigative techniques which will provide your organisations with the necessary oversight and compliance means to deal with any issues arising which in turn will help mitigate your reputational risk so that your organisation can focus on delivering its services to beneficiaries without the fear of negative publicity or reprisals.


This highly practical 3-day course is specifically designed for staff in humanitarian organisations who are tasked with conducting and/or overseeing investigations into staff misconduct of all kinds, including:


  • Theft & fraud
  • Mismanagement of personnel and/or resources
  • Harassment – both Workplace and Sexual
  • Bribery & corruption
  • Sexual exploitation & abuse


By the end of the course the participants will know how to:


  • Assess complaints
  • Plan and manage investigations
  • Gather, preserve and analyse evidence
  • Conduct effective interviews
  • Work sensitively and successfully with vulnerable witnesses and victims
  • Write clear and concise reports
