• Digital behaviors and people risk: Challenges for risk management

      Phippen, Andy; Ashby, Simon (Emerald, 2013)
      This research explores the implications for risk management of “People Risk.” In particular how online digital behaviors, particularly from young people entering the workplace for the first time, might impact on the work setting and how risk management might mitigate impact on the employee and organization. A mixed methods approach was used to consider these implications and draws from a number of data sources in the United Kingdom including a database of self-review data around online safety policy and practice from over 2000 schools, a survey of over 1000 14–16 year olds and their attitudes toward sexting, and a survey of over 500 undergraduate students. In addition the work considers existing risk management approaches and the models therein and how they might be applied to people risk. The dataset analyzed in this exploration show an education system in the United Kingdom that is not adequately preparing young people with an awareness of the implications of digital behavior in their lives and the survey data shows distorted social norms that might have serious consequences in the workplace.
    • Managing Reputational Risks in Supply Chains

      Lemke, Fred; Petersen, Henry L. (Springer Singapore, 2018)
      In the face of ever expanding global markets, supply chain risks have become increasingly important. Most professionals are fully aware of the risks that have the potential to disrupt supplies such as minor design problems or even natural disasters. However, there is one kind of risk that has been often overloaded in supply chain management but is now becoming a threat: reputational risk. This chapter will explain the theoretical underpinnings of this vital management area and how to mitigate reputational risks in a practical supply chain setting.
