Dependable Risk Management and Consulting Services

Businessman is using tablet pcAt F.O. Givens and Company, we know that for companies to survive and thrive, they have to assess risks and be prepared. Risk management assesses the risks involved with your firm's business practices. The main goal is to minimize risks and help you achieve your strategic goals, regardless of how extensive the list of risks can be!

Companies will generally encounter many different types of threats throughout their operations. Common examples include equipment breakdown, employee or service liability, and losses on investments.

While we see that some risks are acceptable, our expert team carefully weighs tradeoffs and opportunity costs when deciding what types of risk should be eliminated. Below are the main categories of risk we usually consider:

Financial Risk: Some business practices may result in financial instability, such as misallocations of resources and bad investments. We will help you identify and replace these processes.


Human Risk: This involves the possibility of human error and judgment. It also deals with the effects the company will incur when losing a key employee. We help you set internal controls to help you avoid losses due to inefficiencies or fraud.


Environmental Risk: This includes external factors outside the company's control, such as pandemics, power outages, or natural disasters. We can help you control potential damages by building emergency disaster plans and ensuring you have the right insurances in place to help your business weather hard times.


Physical Risk: Includes the loss of any physical resources such as the loss of land, buildings, investment, or equipment.
