Based on the ISO 31000 Risk Management Standard, the Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission (COSO) Enterprise Risk Management – Integrated Framework and the Canadian Standards Association, Gallagher’s ERM software tools allow you to build a risk repository tied to company objectives, supporting key risk management metrics and risk appetite. In turn, you can then deliver targeted risk assessments to evaluate identified risks within your environment and manage the reduction, transfer or acceptance of assessment findings.
Gallagher Risk Management Services team guides companies in implementing an ERM program specifically designed to meet its unique needs and resources with the following ERM services:

  • Development and implementation of education materials (from employee to the management and board member level) to integrate ERM into your organization’s culture as it relates to identification, assessment and treatment of risk. 
  • Assessment of your organization’s current risk management maturity position along with recommendations for a framework tailored to the needs of your organization to achieve a “best practices” ERM status.
  • Development of your organizational ERM “risk map” to set your ERM priorities.
  • Assessment and understanding of your company’s risk appetite in a manner that allows a more quantifiable analysis of risks facing you have or may encounter.
  • Development of a risk management charter that defines the purpose, roles and responsibilities of risk management through all levels of the organization balanced by metrics and methods for monitoring progress and success of the ERM framework.

Given the complexities of issues confronting public sector operations these days, enterprise risk management has evolved into an adaptable solution and foundation for cities, counties, schools and insurance pools seeking more robust and comprehensive protection programs. 

ERM represents a paradigm shift that considers both positive and negative consequences of risks upon your objectives.  It supports engagement with a wide range of stakeholders and factors in complex organizational structures and business objectives into the next decade. Given this flexibility, we believe ERM will become the new “norm” for how we collectively and individually manage risk.

Risk Assessment is a critical component of the Enterprise Risk Management process. It requires an organization to identify and manage potential events that may affect its ability to successfully implement well-crafted business strategies and achieve objectives.

  • The results of the Risk Assessment would help guide and determine appropriate actions for managing organization-wide risks and implement controls selected to protect against the likelihood of identified risks.
