Original program date: June 2017 (program no longer available)

Program length: 60 minutes

Business risk is inevitable. As much as business leaders would like to eliminate all risk for their organizations, it's impossible to do. As caretakers of one of a business's most valuable assets -- its people -- HR has an important role to play in helping businesses balance and mitigate risk.

In this program, Deborah Muller, CEO of HR Acuity, will review the “must practices” required by every organization to effectively anticipate and manage risk in the areas of hiring, firing, violence, fraud and more. Using current organizational debacles as case studies, Muller will share expert guidance on the steps that are now a “must” for every HR professional to take before, during and after an allegation of wrongdoing is raised in the workplace. Included in the program:

  • Why solid relationships with people managers matter more than ever.
  • How hotlines can lead to a false sense of security.
  • Why the process is just as important as the outcome.
  • How to maintain control – before, during and after the investigation.
  • Outlier and inliers ... why metrics and tracking are so critical.
