Ever since the emergence of performance management and talent management, managers and companies have been exposed to the risk of being accused of discrimination, bias and prejudice. Although structured processes using modern technology can help avoid some of these situations, they can also help capture comments that should never have been thought, let alone recorded. During this complimentary webinar, Clinton Wingrove, executive vice president and principal consultant of Pilat HR Solutions, Vanessa James, partner and head of Employment with SA Law, and Tim Faherty, vice president of Global Alliances with EthicsPoint, will share three different perspectives on the issue of risk management.

Wingrove will discuss some of the key benefits, and the potential dangers, associated with using contemporary technology and how some of those tools might not be as good of a defense as the vendor stated. James will share examples of how easy it is for managers who have not received effective training to put themselves and their companies at risk, highlighting how practical training for managers can help avoid major legal issues. Faherty will then demonstrate how contemporary technology can be used to truly manage (and not just react to) major issues.

Attendees of this webinar will also learn how to make sure they account for the issue of risk management when considering, implementing or modifying their HR applications; how to bring concerns to the fore and manage them before they become complaints and grievances; and how to help managers ensure the organization is compliant.

HR and training and development professionals, business managers and executives interested in learning about how their organizations can avoid costly litigation through proper risk management are encouraged to attend this complimentary event that will teach them how today's technology can help ensure they remain in compliance.
