Kohler Consulting, LLC

Faith Kohler, JD

Do you think about data breaches or active shooters, workplace violence or #MeToo claims and ask yourself “could that happen here?”  Do your policies, process and employee behaviors truly support a culture of prevention? How safe do your employees feel at work? How you hire, screen and manage even the smallest of workplace issues can help answer those questions for employers…and those answers offer valuable insight into potential risks.  So before you simply add more physical security measures, isn’t it time to change the conversation?

Our approach stems from an understanding that people are the number one cause of business risk…so how you manage your people is often the key to effective risk mitigation. We help you understand and prioritize human risks.  We show you how to develop sustainable strategies to address small problems before they evolve into large-scale negative events.  From Human Resources to security and compliance, we help you create and enhance preventive culture across your workplace.  Ask us about an objective  review of your people-related policy and process, or our behind-the-scenes coaching & consulting programs for HR and cross-functional teams. We help you “know what you don’t know” about hiring, terminations and everything in between.  A culture of prevention starts here! Contact us for a confidential consultation.

RISK CONSULTING

Every business comes with risk. How does yours measure up?  From policy and process integration to workplace culture and physical security, I offer expert consulting to enhance compliance and mitigate risk.  Specializing in the gap between policy and behavior, I bring you practical solutions to improve process, heighten efficiency and effectively resolve risk-related business concerns.

INVESTIGATIONS

Unresolved business is a risk to your business, as the #MeToo movement has shown.  When allegations occur, using a skilled third-party investigator can increase employee confidence in the resolution process and offer efficient fact-finding and reporting.  A licensed attorney with background that includes law enforcement and corporate investigations, I bring objective, thorough and confidential results to help guide sound business decisions.
