Business in the Community events and COVID-19

In light of the rapidly evolving situation with COVID-19, Business in the Community (BITC) is refining its approach to events in the coming weeks. Many events will now be delivered via digital technology. Those events which do not lend themselves to remote delivery will be assessed on a case-by-case basis.

BITC’s primary goal is to keep people safe so we have taken this decision based on the latest information available from the UK Government, Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Public Health Agencies in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, as well as feedback from many of our members.

Please contact RBTraining@bitc.org.uk  for more information.

Using a risk framework and an impact and likelihood assessment tool we will show you how to get responsible business issues on to your organisation’s risk register.

This will ensure that they are getting the attention at the highest levels. Additionally, we will demonstrate the tools for you to build an accurate materiality matrix for your organisation that considers the opinions of your stakeholders and an assessment of the impact of the issues on your organisational strategic objectives.

Course objectives

By the end of the course, attendees will have:

  • a practical understanding of the impact and likelihood assessment of corporate responsibility issues
  • a detailed set of tools and techniques for delivering a materiality assessment
  • knowledge of how to align those tools with existing management processes
  • ability to communicate a strong business case using a risk analysis framework to present a strong business case for responsible business
  • first-hand knowledge from a company guest speaker
  • ability to use appropriate levels of governance for various business risks.

Additionally, delegate organisations will benefit from a:

  • better understanding of risk and materiality in relation to responsible business
  • fuller and more robust business case for responsible business.
