Operational Risk Management: Insights from Alexander Hamilton Award Winners
Corporate risk management can take a lot of different forms, because risks to a company's performance, reputation — even survival — come in a wide array of shapes and sizes. But every successful risk management project has one thing in common: It is launched with a clear vision of how the company can better manage some of the exposures that threaten the organization or its stakeholders.
This is the type of vision that is demonstrated by this year's winners of the prestigious Alexander Hamilton Awards in the Operational Risk & Insurance category. Their initiatives included a broad-scale ERM implementation, a business continuity planning program, and a project that launched an entirely new type of insurance for global employees.
