Premier security and investigations firm, Beau Dietl & Associates, launched a new investigative platform and solution to better protect victims of discrimination, sexual harassment, assault, and ethics violations in the workplace. The platform will be a confidential and independently administered web-portal, providing a secure avenue for employees to report workplace misconduct anonymously.

Over the past year, the “MeToo” Movement has helped demonstrate the prevalence of sexual harassment and assault in the workplace, however, victims continue to face fear of retribution from employers when reporting a crime. The platform will allow for employers to have the opportunity to proactively support their employees and find the truth behind a claim without being directly involved in the investigation. It was created to combat misinformation while also providing HR departments a safe, transparent way to ensure due diligence is carefully administered.

“The past 34 years of my investigative career have been focused on assisting and protecting the greater good by seeking out the truth,” said Bo Dietl, founder & CEO of Beau Dietl & Associates. “As a result of being involved in the investigation of several high-profile cases of sexual harassment and ethics violations at major corporations, my team recognized the need for a solution that makes it easy for victims to come forward without hesitation or fear of retribution. Because our platform is completely independent from the business, we are confident it will support employees, while also weeding out unsubstantiated claims.”

The platform is championed by Beau Dietl & Associate’s Vice President of Corporate Investigations, Charles Diamond. As a former senior investigator with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a federal agency that administers and enforces civil rights laws against workplace discrimination, Diamond has overseen thousands of workplace complaints and their subsequent investigations.

“The portal allows any employee to seamlessly report incidents and file complaints while remaining completely anonymous, ensuring a high level of comfort and security,” said Diamond. “The information is then fully reviewed by an independent, third-party investigator who handles how to proceed based on the findings. This system benefits both victims and businesses alike.”
