The Importance of Ethical Investigations in Kenya: Understanding the Meaning Behind “We Deliver Results, Not Reports”
When it comes to private investigation services in Kenya, it’s important to understand the meaning behind the phrase “We deliver results, not reports.” Some investigation firms may use this phrase to imply that they will give you the outcome you want, rather than the true outcome of the investigation. This can be dangerous because it may lead to complacency in wrongdoings and could encourage investigators to get results at any cost.
Another interpretation of this phrase could mean that the investigation firm is solely focused on the end result, like finding assets, and not concerned with how they obtained the information. This mentality is not only wrong, but it can also be illegal.
As a client, it’s important to understand the investigation process and ask questions about how the information is obtained. A professional investigator will not put you or your organization at risk of liability.
When choosing a private external investigator, for your corporate investigations needs, it’s important to look for one who is unbiased, independent, and consistent in their process. As the client, you have the right to be informed of all steps planned and taken in the execution of the investigation. A professional investigator will respect this right and work to ensure that the investigation is conducted legally and ethically.
The Investigations Process
All investigation firms, and individual investigators should work hard to show no malice, no biases/preconceived opinions, independence of thought, and consistency in the process. As an independent private investigator, you work for the client. And unless the client waives that right to be informed of all steps planned in the execution of his work, and an account of all steps taken. You have no business taking that right away from them.
