Risk Management - HR Services | Audax HR Services

Risk Management

In the business world, risks are inevitable and organizations have a moral and legal obligation to attend to the safety and well-being of those they serve, those who work for them and others who come into contact with their operations. This is known as “Duty of Care.”

​Organizations need to look at all the risks throughout their entire operation and incorporate risk management into all planning and decision-making. However, our focus is risk management as it applies to HR activities.

​The risk management process is a cycle. That means that it is not something that gets checked off a “to do” list but it is a continuous activity. Having a risk management process means that your organization knows and understands the risks to which you are exposed. It also means that your organization has deliberately evaluated the risks and has strategies in place to remove the risk altogether, reduce the likelihood of the risk happening or minimize harm in the event that something happens.

​At a very basic level, risk management focuses you on two fundamental questions:

  1. ​What can go wrong?
  2. What will we do to prevent the harm from occurring in the first place and in response to the harm or loss if it actually happens?

​More specifically, we focus on the following:

  • Hiring
    • Discriminatory practices
    • Hiring unsuitable or unsafe candidates
    • Wrongful hiring
  • Workers Compensation & Occupational Health and Safety
    • Environmental
    • Personal injury or death
  • Employee supervision
    • Harassment, abuse and discrimination
    • Reputation in the community
    • Release of personal information
