Scenario: A valuable piece of technology testing equipment went missing from your company after arriving in a shipment. The same day, a seemingly identical item was posted for sale on an internet auction site. Three employees were present within the 90-minute window that the item went missing.
You are the director of Viewpoint, the company’s employee relations department. Being the Viewpoint director, a role in Human Resources, means that you are an advocate for all employees and that your primary responsibility is to relate employee concerns to leadership and provide guidance on situations involving employee discipline (as requested). The inventory manager has asked you to assist in this loss prevention case by constructing a timeline of events as the first step.
Review the transcripts of all three employees and the security camera footage. Do not use any other sources.
As you review the sources, consider the following:
What information did you learn from each source?
What do the sources agree on?
What events definitely happened, and which likely happened?
What conflicting information do you notice?
Determine the most relevant information needed to construct the best possible timeline based on the sources provided. What information you choose to include (and exclude) will be an important part of your timeline clarity and accuracy.
Create a timeline based on the information you’ve determined most relevant. As you create your timeline, consider the following:
Is the timeline easy to understand? Does it read clearly and in a logical order?
Is the language and presentation appropriate for a professional audience? Consider grammar, choice of wording, and visual effectiveness.
