Human Resources Risk (HR Risk) Chapter
The HR Risk chapter demonstrates an organizational commitment toward how Human Resources strives to be a strategic partner.
The HR Risk Chapter is the first of its kind to be set up in RIMAS.
The activities of the chapter will be organizing workshops, and seminars to promote the concept of HR risk management, responsibility, and leadership among our members of the association.
What is the undisputed asset of every company? It’s employees or rather, talents! The overall purpose of HR is to ensure that the company is able to achieve success through people. Starting from talent acquisition, HR is primarily the gatekeeper of every company and has the responsibility of ensuring all employees are the right talents for the company. HR Risk aims to identify & mitigate all other risks and educate on the current trend and best market practices
There is a bright future for HR practitioners as the benefits of sound HR risk management strategies become increasingly recognized throughout the business community.
