The average time taken to complete a case went down from 180 days to 65 days; and an analysis of case management costs showed a drop from £9 million to £6 million over 6 years. Outsourcing this service to CMP resulted in a gross saving of £3 million in 4 years.
Senior HRBPLondon Underground:
This was a difficult case with sensitive H&B issues, many witnesses and a strict time constraint.  CMP were fantastic in ensuring that the investigator worked outside their SLA to complete the report.  The investigator was thorough, provided valuable insight and worked incredibly hard to ensure a full robust report earlier than expected.  A BIG thank you to them!
HR Manager Private Sector FTS200
We use CMP Resolutions to help us handle very complex, highly sensitive mediations and investigations.  We have been impressed by their speed of response, the professionalism of their people, not only their mediators and investigators but also their back office and logistics.  Most importantly the outcomes of their work have enabled us to resolve our issues successfully. Would we use them again? Without question. They are our “goto” solution.
DirectorEmployment Relations, States of Jersey
The disciplinary was dealt with in a sure-footed way. Our experience of CMP’s investigation service was very good and efficient, and we had help in resolving difficult issues that internal people couldn’t deal with.
HR ManagerKirklees Borough Council
Investigations are part and parcel of what HR do, but if something is going to take a lot of time, requires specialist input and needs doing immediately, then we do occasionally outsource. Public Sector bodies have to be very cautious in terms of the cost of conducting investigations in relation to outsourcing and so when we do, we have to be confident we will achieve best value. CMP was aware of these considerations and delivered to timescale.

Public Sector bodies have to be very cautious in terms of the cost of conducting investigations in relation to outsourcing, and so when we do we have to be confident we will achieve best value; we are confident CMP provided us with just that.

Director of HRRussell Group University
CMP provided us with focused attention on the seriousness of a complaint and the company’s attitude towards it; the process was handled very well.
HR DirectorWhitelink Ferries

Their independent investigation enabled a clear decision to be made. CMP is a very good company to do business with – reliable and thorough, deliver within timescales and keep you informed. They provided very good value for money and I would definitely recommend CMP.

HR ManagerLondon Council
We are magnificently impressed with the robustness and thoroughness of the investigation.

I was very impressed with CMP and their investigator who took the time to really talk with me, to find out the facts, probing sensitively and with respect to find out not only what happened but why. His approach was to engage me in a deep conversation allowing me the time I needed to get to the bottom of all the issues; I genuinely enjoyed my interview, which is not something I ever thought I would say about being part of an investigation.
