There is a growing awareness of the need for risk management in organizations being instigated by the unprecedented and monumental disruption caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The pandemic and other shocks over the years have created an increasing sense of preparedness among business leaders, thus, more risk desks spring up every day in both large and medium size organizations.
Steve Culp wrote on Forb in October 2020: “As Matthew Bishop, an editor from the Economist, said in 2015, “In the rest of our lifetimes the pace of change will never again be as slow as it is today.” Within the last 20 years, we have seen the dot-com crash, the attacks of 9/11 and the global war on terror, the global financial crisis and now the pandemic. Extraordinary events are becoming the norm”.
Louise Holden wrote on Linkedin last year: “According to the GARP Risk Careers Survey 2021 report on the state of the risk profession, organizations and financial institutions around the world are continuing to seek out individuals with the skills to evaluate and address risk.
“Over half of survey respondents, 54%, expected their organizations’ risk departments to grow in 2021. While a proportion of the hiring managers surveyed were looking to source generalists, indicating a global need for professionals who can practice across a variety of areas, certain specializations and emerging risk areas also rose as top opportunities for those entering the field.”
