Risk management is essential to Artelia’s sustainability and development, the safeguarding of its profitability and the employee shareholding scheme. The risks managed are those faced by the company, its employees, its clients and stakeholders. Risk management is an essential component of the group’s Management System.
An effective risk management
Effective risk management is the result of close cooperation between the business units and support service departments. Each support service department is responsible for managing the risks inherent to its assignments (human risks via the Human Resources Department, financial risks via the Administration and Financial Department, legal risks via the Legal Affairs Department, risks of lost data via the Information Systems Department, etc.).
The Risk Management Department
The Risk Management Department has been set up to encourage anticipation and prevention.
In conjunction with the Legal Affairs Department, the Risk Management Department sets out common principles of risk management for the business units, identifies new and/or critical, specific and/or recurrent risks with the business units, considers how to prevent them on the basis of feedback from experts within and outside the company, formulates and communicates the group’s doctrine on each issue whenever pertinent. The Risk Management Department prepares reference documents and provides training in risk management.
