Incorporating Risk Management in your HR policy: 2-Day In-Person Seminar
Ronald Adler, President-CEO, Laurdan Associates, Inc.
| Thursday, November 3, 2016 | Friday, November 4, 2016
National surveys of risk managers identify human capital related risks as one of the most important risks facing organization…and one of the least effectively managed. Meanwhile CEO global surveys concerning high-impact global risks consistently rank the “availability of key skills” as a critical risk…a risk — if not effectively managed — that can negatively affect the achievement of strategic and business objectives, negatively affect competitiveness, and hamper an organization’s ability to innovate.
HR experts and business leaders further note that misaligned, ineffective, and improper human capital management policies, practices, and processes create financial, operational, and reputational risks that can threaten an organization’s bottom line, adversely impact sustainability, and reduce the organization’s value for its stakeholders.
Conversely, effective human capital risk management can create a competitive advantage, create new business development opportunities, enhance the effective deployment of resources, and create value. Thus the benefit from HR audits.
This workshop addresses the benefits, procedures, and methodology of managing HR related risks. It reviews the issue of human capital risk management and its impact on the organization. It further reviews key risk management and human capital management concepts, discusses methods of assessing risks, evaluates human capital KPIs, KRIs, and scorecards, and evaluates risk control and risk mitigation strategies and techniques.

To help assess their exposure and vulnerability to these human capital risks and to help enhance the management of their human capital asset, organizations are increasingly conducting HR risk management assessments. These assessments are no longer just checklists of human resources do’s and don’ts, they have become continuous, sustainable, comprehensive management assessments that provide assurances that risk are properly identified and management; that HR activities are aligned with business objectives; and that compliance and governance requirements are being met.
These risk assessments, which include HR audits, are used to protect and enhance the value of the organization’s human capital. They also assess the alignment of HR management activities with organizational objectives, help manage the organization’s human capital risks, identify and manage material risks; ensure compliance; assist in due diligence; and help assess and test internal controls. HR risk assessments additionally ensure that human capital adds value to the organization; that the organization’s human capital makes the organization more competitive; that it helps the organization achieve its business objectives; and that the organization clearly identifies and manages its human capital risks and opportunities.
Thus, HR risk management is increasingly seen as an important addition to the organization’s planning and budgeting activities and helps the organization identify critical risks that can have a significant impact — either positively or negatively — on the organization.

Old Sacramento State Historic Park
Old Sacramento State Historic Park is located within the Old Sacramento Historic District of Sacramento, California. It is generally referred to as Old Sacramento, or Old Sac, and since the 1960s has been restored and developed as a significant tourist attraction. This unique 28-acre park is located along the beautiful Sacramento River. Bustling with activity, the district is alive with shopping, dining, entertainment, historical attractions and world-renowned museums set within the time of the California Gold Rush and the Transcontinental Railroad. This historic landmark overflows with things to see and do. From river boats to railroads excursions to horse drawn carriages and riverside bike treks, Old Sacramento is history on the move.
California State Capitol
The California State Capitol is home to the government of California. The building is based on the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. It houses the bicameral state legislature and the office of the governor. Located in Sacramento, the Neoclassical structure was completed between 1861 and 1874 at the west end of Capitol Park. The Capitol and its grounds were listed as a California Historical Landmark in 1974, with a re-dedication on January 9, 1982 to commemorate the close of the bicentennial restoration project.
Folsom Lake is a reservoir in Northern California about 25 miles northeast of Sacramento in Placer, El Dorado. The lake is formed by Folsom Dam, constructed in 1955 to control the American River. The dam and lake are part of the Folsom Project, which also includes the Nimbus afterbay reservoir and dam facilities. The Folsom Project, operated by the United States Bureau of Reclamation, is part of the Central Valley Project, a multipurpose project that provides flood control, hydroelectricity, drinking water and water for irrigation. The Folsom Lake State Recreation Area is managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Crest Theatre is an historic theatre located in downtown Sacramento, California. It originally opened in 1912 as the Empress Theatre. In 1949, the building was completely remodeled and revamped to its current form as the Crest Theatre. During the 1950s and 1960s, it was one of the premier first-run movie palaces in the Sacramento area. Towards the end of 1995, the Crest was completely refurbished and today its main auditorium (which has been left in its post-1946 unaltered state) is a multi-purpose theatre showing classic revival and specialty films, occasional live shows and lectures. Two additional cinemas were built adjacent to the original site around the time of the remodeling.
The California Museum
The California Museum is housed in the State Archives Building in Sacramento, one block from the State Capitol. The building has more than 20,000 square feet of exhibit space, and facilities for lectures, performances, receptions and events. Some of their popular exhibits include California Indians: Making A Difference, California's Remarkable Women, Uprooted: The Japanese American Experience during World War II, Riding Concrete: Skateboarding In California, and California Innovates: The Computer Chip.
Sleep Train Arena
Sleep Train Arena (originally ARCO Arena, later Power Balance Pavilion) is an indoor arena, located in Sacramento, California. Opened in 1988, it is the home of the National Basketball Association's Sacramento Kings. The arena is named after The Sleep Train, a chain of mattress and bed retailers based in Rocklin, California. Sleep Train Arena hosts nearly 200 spectator events each year. The current configuration seats up to 17,317 and can host such varied events as concerts, ice shows, rodeos and monster truck rallies. Nearly two million spectators from throughout Northern California visited Sleep Train Arena last year.
B Street Theatre
B Street Theatre is a 501c3 non-profit theater located in Sacramento, California. It was founded by actor Timothy Busfield in 1986 as Theatre for Children, Inc. The company’s first focus was a touring theatre company for children. The B Street Theatre School Tour (formerly known as Fantasy Theatre) was and continues to be extremely popular in the community— performing 12 times per week, 38 weeks a year. The School Tour has received critical acclaim by the media and educators. It is estimated that 3.6 million California children (currently about 200,000 per year) have attend performances since B Street Theatre's inception. For many children, The B Street Theatre School Tour is their only exposure to live theatre in Northern California.
