Manage and mitigate the human side of risk

In Humanizing Rules: Bringing Behavioural Science to Ethics and Compliance, veteran risk adviser and trainer Christian Hunt delivers an incisive and practical discussion of how to mitigate the risk of people doing things they shouldn't or failing to do things they should. In the book, you'll explore effective strategies for achieving compliance that work with – rather than against – the grain of natural human thinking and behaviour.

The authors challenge existing presumptions about managing risk and show you practical techniques and examples you can deploy today in your own organisation. You’ll also find:

  • Strategies for preventing adverse events that go beyond simply assuming that, because someone is employed, they can be told what to do
  • Techniques for risk mitigation in environments which are difficult to codify
  • Ways to improve positive engagement on the part of employees critical to risk management

An effective and essential text in managing the human contribution to adverse and negative events, Humanizing Rules is a must-read for compliance professionals, Chief Risk Officers and other risk executives, managers, directors, and other business leaders with an interest in reducing the likelihood and impact of risk.
