Risky People!  Manage Them…





What’s the biggest risk to your organisation?  It’s people, right?

Those in the UK on might be thinking, “actually it’s rain” this week.  But we all know that people often introduce risk into our organisations and, what with people being so unpredictable(!) this whole area can be amongst the hardest to judge realistically.

The UK’s Centre for the Protection of National Infrastructure thinks it can help.

It’s new guidance, titled Holistic Management of Employee Risk (though they’d like you to refer to it colloquially as Homer…) is aimed at board members and managers.

Employee risk is defined as counterproductive behaviour, whether inadvertent, negligent or malicious, that can cause harm to an organisation.  And the CPNI asserts that their guidance will “help you spot high-risk workplace behaviour and reduce the threat of employees carrying out malicious attacks.”

It includes:

  • Principles, policies, procedures and examples of good practice which help manage the risk of counterproductive behaviour in the workplace
  • Ways to strengthen compliance with legal and regulatory frameworks
  • A framework to help improve trust amongst employees, customers and shareholders.

Check it out and let us know what you think…
