We conduct independent investigations into allegations of bullying and harassment.The objective and impartial approach coupled with a strong personal commitment to the various cases investigated has meant that the investigations have been completed within a realistic time frame. 

The organisations concerned have valued the professional input with its significant benefits; costs have been reduced and complaints are resolved effectively.
We have conducted investigations, some of which include high-profile cases, for:

• Financial Institutions
• Law Firms
• Charities and Voluntary Organisations
• Drug and Alcohol Related Organisations
• Local Authorities
• Mental Health Trusts
• Universities
• Commission for Race Equality (CRE)
Blue Tulip Consultancy has undertaken numerous cases over the past twenty years with only four cases going to Employment Tribunals. 

In those instances, the findings from the Employment Tribunal are in par with the findings produced by Blue Tulip Consultancy.

Research Thesis

Management of Sexual Harassment – Fantasy or Reality?
Snéha completed her MSc. Management of Human Resources at Brunel University. Her research study explored the long-term professional and personal effects on women who had experienced sexual harassment at work. The research also explored the impact of the management process in formally dealing with the allegation of the harassment and how the formal processes could be managed differently.

Blue Tulip Consultancy conducts mediation sessions for organisations that have undergone an investigation process or wish to resolve a formal complaint through mediation. 
This route:

• Mitigates the potential consequences of inappropriate behaviour on staff relations and service delivery
