The Role of The Employee and High Performing Teams in Risk Management

Risk Management is essential for all businesses - there are potentially significant risks inherent in every decision that’s made, regardless of the size of a company or the industry sector. Just starting your business in the first place is risky business!


Risk Management allows organisations to anticipate risks effectively and plan and implement mitigation.  That way a business can continue running and serving their clients whilst making a profit in adverse situations.


For Risk Management to be truly effective, employees must be empowered to play a key part in the process, whilst effective teamwork will ensure delivery of the results. Let’s take a closer look at these two elements and how they affect Risk Management.


The Role of Employees in Risk Management


Employees undoubtedly have a key role to play when it comes to Risk Management - that means every employee, not just those who are directly related to the risk.


Identifying risk is a role anyone can undertake, and identifying risk can be a positive experience in which the whole team can participate. When all employees are involved in determining the risks, without fear, the company will uncover more potential risks. If a “no surprises” culture is present each employee will have their unique knowledge or viewpoint and can provide their thoughts and opinions on risks others might not be aware of.


Leveraging the knowledge of all team members will provide additional insight, help keep lines of communication open, and help educate everyone about the importance of Risk Management.


High Performing Teams in Risk Management


High performing teams can significantly contribute to effective Risk Management within organisations for several reasons. When teams are performing at their best, undertaking things to achieve the results they require, they are more successful, agile, and better placed to deal with any risks that come their way.


In general, high performing teams all have certain things in common that help Risk Management processes and strategies. High performing teams are generally those that have open and honest dialogue throughout all levels of the organisation. This ability to communicate freely helps lines of communication stay open. If there are signs of a potential risk becoming a problem, a business can quickly identify it and relay the details to all employees to then take the necessary steps to mitigate the risk.


Giving Risk Management an important place within the business’s priorities ensures the company is adequately equipped to see and deal with risks as they happen. High performing teams allow the Risk Management processes into the wider organisation in an easier and more streamlined way. Placing importance on Risk Management and analysing how to implement it throughout everything the business and its employees do, highlights how vital it is and keeps it at the forefront of everyone’s minds.


How you communicate Risk Management to employees and management is crucial. Risk Management should be about dialogue without fear or blame. It should instead be about learning, educating, and problem-solving in a positive way that benefits all.
