HR risk management is something that every company needs to make a priority. For those that do, it is always approached as a defensive strategy, ensuring that the company is covered on all of its compliance related issues. The focus within this defensive approach is ensuring that legal and operational issues are avoided. When these issues do arise, it can mean penalties and fines against the company.
