Internal investigations put companies and employees at risk.
We never mismanage incidents.
Harassment and discrimination perpetuate toxic work environments and damage reputations. Eight in ten companies deal with an issue every year - for most, it's not a matter of if something will happen, but when it will happen. With Work Shield's impartial, holistic and credible solution, have certainty and confidence knowing that every incident is managed consistently and effectively - all at a reasonable cost.

Powerful legal protection.
Harassment and discrimination training, reporting platforms and anonymous hotlines are not enough. When reports are sent back to internal departments for investigation, fewer incidents are reported and companies are at greater risk of legal action.
When you partner with Work Shield, your company can no longer legally be held liable for workplace harassment and discrimination, and your risk of legal suits and EEOC charges and investigations is significantly reduced.
