RIMS EXECUTIVE REPORT: Risk Management & Remote Work Policies 7/13/2015


Risk Professionals Address Threats Stemming from
Remote Work Arrangements
NEW YORK (July 13, 2015) — Remote work opportunities have become more commonplace, but this employee benefit does not come without potential risks to the organization.  In its new executive report, Risk Management & Remote Policies, RIMS Board Directors discuss the advantages, challenges and the role risk professionals should play in the development of their organizations’ remote work policies.
“Information technology, confidentiality, employee health and safety and workers’ compensation coverage are just some of the challenges that can surface upon introducing remote opportunities to a workforce,” said RIMS Executive Director Mary Roth. “Being in-tune with the organization’s operations and its strategic direction leaves risk professionals well-positioned to contribute to the development of a strong policy that clearly defines expectations for both employees and their managers.”
Contributors to the Executive Report included the following RIMS Board Directors:
•    Leslie Lamb, Director, Global Risk Management, Cisco Systems, Inc.;
•    Lori Seidenberg, RF, ARM, Senior Vice President, Insurance/Risk Management, Alden Torch Financial LLC;
•    Carolyn Snow, CPCU, Director, Risk Management, Humana Inc.
