In an environment, where having the right talent is an essential ingredient of success, the risk created by our human capital has never been greater. Turnover of high performers, workplace events that result in violence, negligent hiring or retention, as well as, a myriad of online risks related to social media only cover the surface of issues we need to be concerned with.

Those risks mean that HR must be evermore proactive and vigilant in planning and preparing to deal with them, which includes engaging the entire organization in those plans. This webinar will describe a process to identify risks, evaluate the context and potential of those risks, and put plans in place to deal with them. The webinar will give participants the tools they need to engage senior management by quantifying risks and risk plans.


  • Identification of risk sources, like project failures and the types of risks that organizational face (hazard, financial, operational, and strategic)
  • Identification of workplace and occupational injury and illness prevention hazards, as well as, investigation and accommodation methods
  • Methods to monitor the political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental factors that influence the organization and create risk issues
  • Examine potential threats to the organization and guide senior leadership accordingly
  • Develop plans for crisis management, contingency, and business continuity for the HR function and the organization
  • Develop tools to conduct due diligence investigations to evaluate risks and to ensure legal and regulatory compliance
  • Communicate critical information about risks and risk mitigation to senior-level employees, employees at all levels, and external stakeholder

Human Resources play a key part in the development of risk management plans. They help to organize, analyze, and lead the development of the plans and can help deploy the resources necessary to respond to incidents of all kinds. To fulfil that role, HR professionals need a firm understanding of the processes behind risk management. HR can also help to reinforce the risk management culture through the hiring and onboarding process and by making risk management a part of everyone’s job description and the performance management system.
