OL 645: Risk Management Plan Project Instructions and Rubric
Overview
The HR department plays a critical role in risk management strategy, education, and mitigation. When a risk situation has arisen within an organization, the HR
department must respond and take action.
Imagine that you have just been hired as an HR manager for a large corporation (fictitious or real). The executive team is worried about potential organizational
risks within the company. They have asked you to create a risk management plan to mitigate organizational risk.
In order to understand the process of how an organization responds to a risk situation, you will need to find two public cases of risk mitigation. In examining the
two public cases, you will pay special attention to the legal, ethical, safety, environmental, cultural, political, and financial factors addressed by both.
Your goal will be to create a compare and contrast assessment of the two cases regarding the aforementioned considerations. The result of the two case
comparisons will allow you to extract best practices while developing a risk management plan for the company you work for.
The risk management plan will showcase your mastery with respect to the following course outcomes:
Analyze ethical and legal risks of complex human resource issues to ensure legal compliance and to mitigate risk.
Predict the impact and costs of legal, safety, environmental, and financial risks on stakeholders.
Analyze societal, cultural, and political factors in order to make well-informed human resource decisions.
Evaluate the current trends related to workplace health, safety and security for their impact on corporate social responsibility.
Describe pertinent federal employment laws that are related to ethical challenges facing human resource professionals today.

It is suggested that during week 8 you begin to prepare for the final project. To do this, review the critical task prompt and rubric for phase 3. Use the
following bullet points to guide your initial research. Begin to draft your risk mitigation plan. Your final paper will need to be a minimum of 10 pages.

What ethical and legal risks are identified in your case studies?

How can HR mitigate the ethical and legal risks identified in your case studies?

How are federal and state workplace laws influenced or impacted by society, culture, politics, health, safety, and security?

How may your company’s CSR sustainability plan mitigate risks and maximize profits for shareholders? How important is societal support for your
CSR plan?

What factors need to be considered when a company communicates to the public?
To accomplish this, you will need to compare and contrast two case studies of your choice. Consider what each company’s strengths and weaknesses are.
Compose a 1-page comparison and contrast of the case studies, identifying HR strengths and weaknesses regarding legal and ethical workplace
situations. Utilize what you’ve learned in Modules 1-7, as well as from your textbook and other assigned readings, to identify, evaluate, and present
sound approaches to risk mitigation associated with legal and ethical decision making in HR.
Deliverable for Phase II: Assume the executives of your organization are interested in HR’s approach to risk mitigation with regard to legal and ethical
workplace situations. Begin to research best practices regarding legal, ethical, safety, environmental, cultural, political, and financial factors in the
workplace.
The following article provides excellent sources on HR’s role in the mitigation of social and environmental risk and opportunities.
