Making Change Happen in Your Organization

Many financial professionals want to make changes in their organization but struggle to actually do so. Here is a list of questions to help get the process started.

Top Employees' Engagement Levels Plummeting

One big work risk has been receiving little attention: falling employee engagement levels. A new survey has found that employee engagement levels for all U.S. workers has dropped by 9 percent since last year. More disconcerting -- engagement levels of top performers, a company's most valuable workers, dropped by a whopping 25 percent.

Lowering Risk Through Human Process Management

In this Q&A, Jacob Ukelson, chief technology officer of ActionBase, explains how human process management (HPM) can lower risk and bring visibility and structure to the "unstructured, ad-hoc human-to-human interactions."

GRC Talent: Newbies Need Not Apply?

Companies want their GRC staffers to be able to effectively communicate with executives who sit on internal risk committees and to possess deep knowledge of at least one business area of the organization, which typically requires years of experience. Where does that leave greener employees looking to get in on GRC?
