Employee Wellness

The Cost of Not Knowing: The Importance of Employee and Workplace Risk Management.


28 February 2017

Casa Toscana




Risk management involves understanding, analysing and addressing risk to make sure organisations achieve their objectives. If a company defines strategic goals without taking risks into consideration - including employee and workplace management risks, the chances are that they will lose direction when these risks occur in the organisation.  The aim of this workshop is to provide the Industrial Psychologist with the means to actively contribute to the integrated risk management of a company and thereby improving the chance of an organisation to thrive in a challenging economic climate.


The following will be addressed during the workshop:

The application of an objective employee and workplace risk analysis.

The quantification of risks including disengagement, person-job fit and turnover intention.

The importance of employee and workplace risk management.

The cost of not knowing these risks.


SIOPSA Pretoria Regional Branch invites you to an opportunity

WHY should you attend?

Relevance to the South African IOP / HR practitioner:

The Industrial Psychologist, as a professional and expert in  organisational development (OD) and employee functioning in the workplace, is in the ideal position to identify and evaluate employee and workplace risks and answer to Executives whether employee and workplace management support strategic intent, for example: Can we grow the business with 10% with our current workforce and work climate? Which areas show more risks?


Relevance to the Emerging Psychologists (IOP Interns, MCom and Honours Students):

Emerging Psychologists will get the opportunity to see what role an IOP can play in the risk management in South Africa, and realise, as young practitioners, the importance of risk management. The intent is to create an awareness from early on so that attention can be paid to this aspect.


2 CPD points will be allocated for this workshop
