The Steps to Implementing a Successful Risk Management Program

By Tracy Fitzgerald

The thought of implementing a new Risk Management program or changing a current model can often be a daunting task for management. Where does one begin and how does a program become embedded in an organisation? When thinking about establishing a program it is worth taking the time to start small and gradually increase the level and span of the program over time. Risk Management programs should be dynamic and adaptable to the organisation and its environments. It is vital that the concept of Risk Management and its benefits are communicated across the organization so that each team embraces it by understanding the long term effects that a successful (and unsuccessful) program will have on the organization. To successfully introduce the idea of Risk Management to the organization, follow these steps:
  1. Acknowledge and understand the practice of Risk Management
Acknowledging the need for a Risk Management program and the long term benefits it can bring to the organization and the industry in which you operate in will help you to communicate the plan to the wider team as you progress. Understanding what a Risk Management program is will be key to its design and ultimately to its success when implemented throughout the organization.
  1. Communicate the plans for a Risk Management program to all staff
Communication is the key to successful change. Consistent, relevant and timely communication to all stakeholders within the organization will be crucial to achieving buy-in when the program is being designed, implemented and when feedback is sought.
  1. Educate staff in Risk Management in ways they can understand and with examples they can relate to
Communication and education go hand-in-hand. It is not enough to tell staff that a Risk Management Program is being implemented, you need to educate them on what it involves, how they will be impacted and the benefits it will bring to the organization operationally and strategically.
  1. Work with all department and teams to develop a Risk Management Framework that is suitable for the organization,
When designing a Risk Management Program, involving members from all levels of the organization will be key to its effectiveness and longevity. Rather than taking a helicopter view of the organization, deep dive into the different areas of the business and incorporate these into the program. This can be done by setting up cross-departmental teams and working groups. Working with cross-departmental teams will also play an integral part to the buy-in levels when implemented. Be sure to take into account regulations, organization goals, resources and skills available both internally and externally.
  1. Encourage a culture of accountability and transparency throughout the organisation at all times
Ensure that a culture of accountability and transparency for all actions taken is developed and nurtured across the organization from the early stages when implementing a Risk Management program. This will be a fundamental part to the program and its integrity.
  1. Give staff the resources they need in order to keep up to date with Risk Management practices
All those involved in the Risk Management process that fallout from the program, as well as those who have a general interest, should have access to materials which will allow them to keep on top of new process and procedures (internally and externally), best practices and regulatory updates. This information should not be difficult for staff to find and access. For a Risk Management program to be successful it is very important that the purpose of its introduction into the organization and the importance of each teams buy-in is effectively communicated in a timely manner.

The final run of the ViClarity "5K A Day" in aid of Mental Health Ireland took place on Saturday December 17th at the ViClarity office in Tralee. This was the tenth run in ten consecutive days that the ViClarity team had set out on since the launch of the fundraising campaign on December 8th. [caption id="attachment_1488" align="alignright" width="300"]img_3213 ViClarity Staff Accompanied By Catherine & Cathy from The Tom Crean Centre During The Final 5K Run[/caption] There have been a lot of sore bodies and tight muscles around the office in the last ten days but it has all been worth it in the end. The team are delighted to have raised funds of €1200 so far for Mental Health Ireland with ViClarity also donating to the charity. John McElhinney, Area Development Officer at Mental Health Ireland for Clare and Limerick visited the ViClarity office on Monday for the presentation of a cheque for €1200 and thanked everyone for taking part in raising vital funds for the charity. John spoke about the importance of such a fundraiser in not only raising money for the charity but also creating awareness for Mental Health and showing it is okay to ask for help. He hopes that the runs will encourage others to get out for a run or walk as being active is important for sustaining a persons mental health and wellbeing. The ViClarity staff would like to thank everyone who donated to the fundraiser so far and have decided to implement the run into their weekly routines for 2017 and will go for a run at least once a week. There is still time to donate to the cause and donations can be made here.
On Thursday December 8th the ViClarity Team set out on the first leg of their "5K A Day" fundraiser in aid of Mental Health Ireland. This year marks the 50th anniversary of Mental Health Ireland and to celebrate this achievement the ViClarity Team will seek to run 5 kilometres a day for 10 consecutive days, reaching a total of 50 kilometres, 1 kilometre to mark each year of Mental Health Irelands existence. [caption id="attachment_1459" align="alignright" width="227"]img_3136-1 Ogie Sheehy CEO of ViClarity leading the way during the "5K A Day" charity run.[/caption] The launch run of the series took place today starting at the ViClarity office in the Tom Crean Centre. The team set out on their 5km chosen route, running toward Tralee town before looping around and returning to the ViClarity offices. The aim of the run is to raise vital funds for Mental Health Ireland and to mark their tremendous achievement in reaching 50 years of helping people with mental health difficulties all around Ireland. The run combines Mental Healths Irelands guidelines for "Five Ways for Wellbeing" which include connecting with others, being active, taking notice, keep learning (try something new) and finally giving. The ViClarity "5K A Day" has even reached the Southeast of the United States of America. A special mention must go to Richard Butti of ViClarity who is based out of Atlanta, Georgia. Richard put on his running shoes for an early morning run this morning and set out on his 5K at the same time as the rest of the ViClarity Team. Richard was happy to be able to contribute to such as great cause as Mental Health Ireland. [caption id="attachment_1460" align="alignleft" width="169"]Richard Butti joining in The ViClarity 5K A Day in Atlanta Richard Butti joining in The ViClarity 5K A Day in Atlanta, Georgia[/caption] For charities such as Mental Health Ireland "giving" is very important as the funds donated are used to run the charity year after year. ViClarity will be making a donation to Mental Health Ireland at the end of the "5K A Day" fundraiser. If you are interested in donating to Mental Health Ireland you can do so through the ViClarity event page at https://give.everydayhero.com/ie/viclarity-5k-a-day. Any donations are welcome as every cent counts. To keep up with how the ViClarity fundraiser is going you can follow our social channels on Twitter and LinkedIn.    
On Thursday December 1st ViClarity held our Christmas Training Event for our credit union clients at the Maldron Hotel Newlands Cross Dublin. The opening address from Ogie Sheehy CEO of ViClarity set the tone for the day as he welcomed all the credit union officials who had travelled on the cold December morning. Ogie outlined the agenda for the day which included expert risk and compliance training from David Montgomery of EisnerAmper, ViClarity updates, festive games and plenty of prizes to be given away. img_3089 David Montgomery, Head of the Risk & Regulatory team at EisnerAmper was the keynote speaker on the day and provided guests with excellent insights and tips around risk & compliance for credit unions. David worked at The Central Bank for 12 years and was involved on panels that introduced the PRISM regulations for credit unions. He was able to provide first hand experience and tips for ensuring credit unions can successfully manage risk & compliance. Following Davids training Dean Roche and Brain Hillary advisors at EisnerAmper  joined him to hold an expert Q&A session with the audience. It was a very interactive session which provided excellent information for the credit union officials and staff. Following Davids expert risk & compliance training Grainne Campion of Clogherhead Credit Union was the next speaker. Grainne provided a thorough and informative account of the journey credit unions go through when taking the first step on the road to managing risk & compliance. After taking up the role of Risk Officer at Clogherhead Credit Union she faced the burden of gathering and reporting all the risk & compliance data in the credit union. Grainne spoke honestly about the difficulty of the task at the beginning but once she came into contact with ViClarity she found that the ViClarity solution was the perfect fit for her credit union. Grainne found that ViClarity made the gathering of compliance data much easier, managing and mitigating risks became much more manageable as the solution provided live dashboards and reporting features that made key risks easier to identify. Next on the agenda was The ViClarity Christmas Song Competition where guests had to guess the song and the band who sang it from snippets of famous christmas songs. Tom Ryan of Aughrim Credit Union proved to be the musical expert on the day with an impressive 10 out of 14 correct and he was awarded a spot prize for his knowledge. Ogie Sheehy then provided an update on new features in the ViClarity solution. Ogie outlined the best and most efficient ways of pulling reports from the ViClarity system and using them to put together a comprehensive pack to be given to board members. Ogie answered some excellent questions from the audience and was happy to provide them with tips and solutions for their queries. After all the talks were over the group then went upstairs for Christmas dinner and more games were played and prizes given away. Congratulations to the main prize winner on the day Rose Gilmont from Stillorgan Credit Union who took away the hamper. [caption id="attachment_1450" align="alignleft" width="300"]Grainne Campion of Clogherhead.
