  • Bullying statistics

    CWI Principal Craig Sams is Canberra's only Indigenous male registered mediator!

  • The cost of bullying

    The Productively Commission estimates bullying is costing Australia between $6 billion and $36 billion dollars annually.

  • The Australian Public Service

    The Australian Public Service Commission estimate that 17% of staff had been bullied at work but only 0.13% of these claims were investigated. The APSC believes this higher rate of reported bullying could involve unfound accusations.

  • Best Practice in Investigations

    The Australian Government Investigations Standards were developed for all Australian Government agencies to ensure quality investigative practices and outcomes.

  • Best practice in Investigations

    An 'oral statement' made to an investigator should be recorded and a verbatim transcript made of that interview.

  • Fraud in the workplace

    According to KPMG's Fraud and Misconduct Survey of 2010 covering Australia and New Zealand, the incidence of fraud is on the rise. Fraud increased  from $301 to $345 million in two years. 65% of major fraud is committed by employees acting alone and they're motivated by greed and lifestyle.

  • Fraud offences

    Fraud has been identified as the most expensive crime category in Australia with fraud and deception-related offences believed to be the largest category of all Commonwealth offences . Estimates indicated that approximately 25 percent of all fraud cases are actually reported. 

  • Support Person

    If you are interviewed during the course of an investigation, you have the right to have a support person with you. A support person should not be involved in the investigation. Their role is to support you and to observe the process.

  • Reasonable Management Action

    Reasonable management action, conducted in an appropriate manner does not constitute bullying and harassment.

  • Supply Nation Certified

    We are Australia's only Supply Nation certified Indigenous HR Investigations company.
