The job of Risk Manager has evolved over the years, extending beyond issues like health and safety training to data privacy, technology adoption, and many others. The individual in charge of risk management shouldn’t be siloed. Human resources, marketing, and operations leaders should be welcomed into discussions about risk studies. This will provide the opportunity to reassess risks. A proactive risk manager will look to frontline operations managers for insights. In addition, an organization will benefit from having a digital platform that links all departments. Finally, embracing diversity and inclusion will bring new perspectives to the risk management space.
