All organisations are vulnerable to human risk factors that can impact adversely on your reputation and organisational purpose
You might say you are ethical, transparent and accountable, but that has to be proved not just by what you do, but how you do it.
Imagine turning your organisational threats into advantages. Mastering risk builds confidence in your organisation, creating customer and societal trust.
The hard truth is that poor risk management severely impacts your organisational goals, funding, revenue and profit streams. This is something you cannot afford.
Yet, the world is witness to a seemingly endless stream of high-profile scandals involving corruption, fraud, harassment, safeguarding failures, organisational incompetence and regulatory inadequacy. This has eroded public trust in business, finance, government and even sports organisations.
In an increasingly transparent and accountable world, it’s no longer enough to say you are a ‘clean’ business - you have to prove it and live up to it.
For organisations of any kind, being a ‘clean’ business has never mattered more. It’s essential that business, finance, government and public service structures operate in the way they’re supposed to. All organisations need to generate confidence in their shareholders, stakeholders and customers by the way they behave. They need to show that what is supposed to happen, does happen; and what’s not supposed to happen, does not happen.
This matters because when things go wrong the implications are often significant, not just for the organisation but for the economy, social prosperity and for the environment.
