As a business seeking to maximise your return on employee investment, there’s hardly a better choice than to educate staff at all levels with risk management training. Risk management is an integral part of good business management and is directly related to achievement of objectives at all levels in an organisation. Protecht provides risk management training courses suitable for all levels within all business environments. Both public training courses and in-house tailored courses are available.

Benefits of risk management training

Risk management isn’t just a throwaway managerial term; it’s a genuine practice that can be applied to nearly any aspect of personal and professional life. Protecht's risk management training can assist you to:

  • Understand the risks that can impact strategy and objectives - both positively and negatively.
  • Embed a risk taking culture, empowering staff to take risks withing agreed boundaries.
  • Remove the perception of risk as a hindrance to business and demonstrate how risk management is an enabler of strategic objectives.
  • Understand an individual's role in the overall risk management framework, moving responsibility of the Risk Management function to one of oversight and guidance to the real owners of risks - the front line staff.
  • Develop tools and techniques that can assist you in identifying, assessing, mitigating and continually monitoring risks that impact your organisation.

Common mistakes people make regarding risk management training

Despite the incredible utility of risk management solutions and training, many people still hold misconceptions regarding the subject:

  • Thinking that risk management training is solely aimed at risk management professionals. Risk management is the responsibility of all staff in an organisation regardless of their role and level of seniority.
  • Believing that risk management training only focuses on operational risks. Protecht's risk management training covers all aspects of enterprise risk management - from strategic risk through to specific risk domains such as health and safety, compliance risk management, and project risk management.
  • Assuming that all risk management training is purely theoretical. It's easy to fall into the trap of "risk management is too theoretical for my staff" thinking. Protecht's training is full of real life practical examples, with workshops focused on demonstrating how to embed risk management techniques.

Risk management training is only aspect of embedding risk management within an organisation. The best way to understand risk management is to view it as a holistic, results-oriented combination of process, training and software to produce real benefits for businesses.
