REVIEW OF ACTIONS

Grange Advisory Pty Ltd holds a current Private Security Business Licence with the authority to provide the services of ‘Investigator’ issued pursuant to the Private Security Act 2004 issued by the Licencing & Regulation Division of Victoria Police.

Workplace investigations

Managing a workplace investigation can be time consuming and challenging for all involved. 

Grange Advisory conducts timely and independent workplace investigations into a range of matters, including:

  • bullying;

  • harassment;

  • misconduct;

  • sexual harassment;

  • discrimination.

Workplace Reviews

Businesses are increasingly faced with rapidly changing and challenging cultures across their operations. There are wide and varied reasons for a decline in culture that can lead to lost productivity, increased leave and high staff turnover that, in turn, create more challenges. Grange Advisory can:

  • identify cultural issues in organisations and provide independent, high quality findings and analysis, recommendations and steps to assist in improving cultural issues;

  • work with high performing teams to further enhance output, engagement and improve the workplace culture;

  • assist where teams are being split or merged to help businesses work through the transition process;

  • work with staff and businesses on an independent and confidential basis to gain insight, identify issues and opportunities and work with clients to leverage the information obtained to implement strategies to address any cultural issues identified.

Grange Advisory works with its clients to ensure the right workplace training is designed and delivered. 

Grange Advisory provides tailored training to individuals or teams. Grange Advisory works with its clients to design a program that meets requirements. Core topics covered include:

Workplace Mediation & conflict resolution

Mediation and facilitated discussions between parties can be an effective way to resolve matters that may be causing disruption and low productivity in a workplace or team. 

Resolving disputes or conflicts can improve working relationships and help to restore team dynamics and productivity.  Resolving workplace disputes by mediation or facilitated discussions can also help avoid litigation.

Grange Advisory offers both mediations and facilitated discussions to assist parties in resolving conflict and reaching agreements that both parties can find acceptable.
