The Group recognises that risk management is a vital activity that both underpins and forms part of our vision, values and strategic objectives. Risk is present in everything we do and it is therefore our policy to identify, assess and manage the key areas of risk on a proactive basis. We seek to embed risk management into the culture of the Group without introducing unnecessary bureaucracy. We involve, empower and give ownership of the identification and management of risk to all of our operating companies.
To this end, all employees are issued with a booklet which outlines the Marshall Risk Management framework, developed by the Marshall Group. The aim of this booklet is to make sure we have a consistent approach to managing risks – whatever these might be – across the entire Group, and to show employees how everyone can contribute to the risk management process, identifying risks as early as possible and working out how to deal with them effectively.
