Risk is part of life whether you are developing a major new hiring policy or planning a training program. Human Resources Managers are faced with unique risks related to local, State, and Federal, and international regulations and requirements. HR cannot afford to fail to analyze and plan to mitigate risks systematically. Even more problematic is dealing with unexpected risks. Learn to create mitigation plans for anticipated risks and a plan to deal with the unexpected. Use some simple tools to analyze risks and prioritize the need for planning. Be confident as you avoid unnecessary "firefighting" and manage risk strategically.

Why Should You Attend

No project or endeavor ever goes off completely as planned. Glitches, whether large or small, can derail your work if you are unprepared. Planning to manage risks assures a greater chance for minimum impact to schedule, cost, and desired results. Being prepared to deal with unexpected risks allows you to respond not react.
