Regardless of size, all public or private sector organisations are exposed to risk on a daily basis. There are well-documented examples at home and abroad that highlight the consequence of organisational and HR risk management failures.
Effective risk management identifies exposure to internal and external threat in order to inform and aid prevention and protection strategies.
An individual’s behaviour and characteristics, as well as past history may expose an organisation to undue risk and heavy cost. Ignorance is no longer bliss in this litigious, media-hungry and increasingly open society.
Managing Corporate Risk
Corporate risk management strategies and policies need to be extremely rigorous and detailed, but even the best can only account for the known areas of risk.
The more solutions available to identify risk surely leads to less corporate vulnerability, particularly from those employees already within the organisation, and greater corporate risk management in general.
Effective, properly conducted and successive hurdles need to be in place, either at the pre-employment screening stage, or during company and employee audits, to identify and minimise risk.
