Product Description


"As a business owner and employer, this book has expanded my understanding of employee risk beyond the legal issues. It is comprehensive and far-ranging, taking in organization and national cultures, company processes, social media and employee engagement and well-being. What makes it really great is that I will keep it on my shelf as a ready reference and checklist on all employee risk issues."--Jo Ayoubi "Business Development Director, Track 360 "

"This book is witness to the changes to working practices that we, as a media company, have experienced first-hand in recent years. Board-level commitment for project managing future potential risks is critical for success in this area, which is why, with the help of this guide, I have taken leadership on this issue within my own company. Helen's message is loud and clear; if you don't apply her risk management techniques, you are overlooking potential cost savings, of which there are copious examples in the text."--Martin Attis ACA "Finance Director, Sundial Magazines Ltd.

In the first words of this book, the author states “the purpose behind this book is to plug a large gap in the market by introducing the concept of employee risk management to employers”. A big task that the author achieves in spades.

Any book that is multidisciplinary (here crossing Human Resources and Risk Management) must balance introducing new concepts to acknowledged experts in both disciplines without speaking down to either group. In this well-researched, well-written hand-book of good practice, the author has walked this fine line well.

The task is huge, Figure 1 in the book shows some 40 topics in eight main areas which can give rise to ‘employee risk’ from ‘recruitment’ through to ‘resignation or dismissal’. All of these areas give rise to risks that can, in an increasingly litigious business environment, cause considerable financial and reputational damage to any firm.

Using a generalized risk management framework from the UK Institute of Risk Management (IRM), the author develops a comprehensive framework for ‘assessing’ employee risks in the many areas it can arise. (Note the author’s framework would work just as well in other popular Risk Management frameworks, such as COSO.) The author then applies this novel framework to major sources of employee risk in every firm from Recruitment, though Information Security, Social networking and other areas in which risks can arise and have to be managed.

Employee Risk Management his is a practical and easy to read book that is a must-read for both HR and Risk professionals and for managers who wish to get a big picture view of a complex and important topic. It is especially relevant to those interested in the very topical subject of ‘Conduct Risk’.

This book is an invaluable resource to anybody who wants, not only to develop an approach to managing employee risk, but also wants to improve their current processes for managing employee risk. It is full of practical and useful information about how such risks can be identified, evaluated and mitigated and will appeal, in particular, to all the governance functions, HR professionals and board directors (particularly those that sit on audit and/or risk committees).

The author provides a sound approach to how an employee risk management program can be implemented in an organization and reminds the reader that employee, in this context, is not just about the typical contracted full/part-time individual but also includes agency workers, self-employed consultants, outsourced staff, interns and volunteers………..all of whom can cause harm to an organisation if employee risks are not adequately managed.

Employee risks starts at the front door with the recruitment process and typically ends when the person leaves the organization. These two phases within the life cycle of an employee are looked at by the author and advice is provided on how to avoid some of the obvious and not so obvious pitfalls that can occur. The time between these two phases includes many opportunities for employee risks to manifest themselves and the author provides in-depth analysis of areas such as employee health and well-being, use of social media and the dangers of information security.

This is a book you can read from cover to cover to better understand how employee risk could impact upon your organisation or a book in which you can dip in and dip out of if you are looking to find more information on a specific area. Well worth a read.

This is an important book. Essential reading for executives and all those managers engaged in the business of hiring, firing and otherwise supervising a business's - excellent and, occasionally, less-than-excellent - human resources. A clearly written blend of recent research with relevant and up-to-date anecdotes taken from real business experience, Employee Risk Management avoids jargon and management-speak clap-trap to provide the reader with a good deal of sound advice in plain English. Remarkably, Helen Rideout has managed to produce a concise, yet comprehensive, treatment of people-risk in 21st Century businesses that is useful on a number of levels: a one-stop-shop for responsible, risk-aware, executives; a risk primer for managers of company employees; and, a detailed activity planning tool for HR professionals. Highly recommended...
