People are capable of remarkable things, but we’re also fallible. It’s a simple truth that’s never been so clearly visible in our organisations, international businesses, global humanitarian organisations, financial institutions and governing bodies.
So much has been accomplished yet the scandal after scandal, failure after failure has corroded public trust and goodwill to a breaking point while causing untold human, economic and environmental harm.
The positive news is that the vast majority of damaging behaviour in organisations is entirely predictable and almost entirely preventable if only we could get ahead of the game and insist on proactive and realistic responses to managing Human Risk Factors.
From fraud, corruption and financial crime, to sexual exploitation, abuse and safeguarding failures, to abuse of authority and position, to gross neglect or sheer incompetence, wherever and whenever it occurs, OSACO Group are committed to helping organisations of all kinds to anticipate and combat unacceptable conduct by those who work within them and on their behalf.
OSACO Humanitarian draws on a global network of expert investigators and consultants with decades of experience in investigating and tackling damaging staff behaviour in the aid and development sector.
We work with UN agencies, INGOs and intergovernmental agencies of all sizes around the world, delivering high-quality investigations, supporting in-house investigations teams and helping organisations develop a robust, proactive response to unacceptable staff conduct.
OSACO Partners are a global network of specialists in compliance, governance, safeguarding and anti-corruption.
We bring an extensive tool kit of experience, expertise and good practice for clean business, allowing organisations of all kinds—commercial, finance, public service and sports—to anticipate unacceptable staff behaviour and tackle it with an effective, proactive response.
“IT MAY HELP TO UNDERSTAND HUMAN AFFAIRS TO BE CLEAR THAT MOST OF THE GREAT TRIUMPHS AND TRAGEDIES OF HISTORY ARE CAUSED, NOT BY PEOPLE BEING FUNDAMENTALLY GOOD OR FUNDAMENTALLY BAD, BUT BY PEOPLE BEING FUNDAMENTALLY PEOPLE.”
