Happy Christmas in July from Wise!

eWISE July 2016 | WISE Workplace

Happy Christmas in July from the WISE team!  We took the opportunity to touch base with all our NSW staff with a nice wine tasting lunch in the city. 

This month we have had the opportunity to work with our first rate actors again with the RMS Investigative Interview training and also delivered two workplace investigation courses in Tasmania. 

AHRI Conference is on in Brisbane next week - so look out for us if you are attending and come and view the demo of GRAPEVINE our new Whistleblower Hotline Service! 

I hope you enjoy reading a selection from last months blogs. 

If you want to see our blogs as they are released you can follow up on Facebook,  Twitter and Linkedin,  just search for WISE Workplace or click the link above.
