Our next event

JADO CPD - Huw Thomas Carey Olsen - Boards and the Management of People Risk – Is Culture a Distraction?

Date: Monday, 24 February 2020

Venue:Pomme D'or Hotel, St Helier, Jersey

Details:

  • Workplace Culture is the buzz phrase of the moment for regulated entities in terms of trying to guard against misconduct by their employees.
  • Much of this has been driven by an FCA Discussion Paper from March 2018 entitled "Transforming Culture in Financial Services" - https://www.fca.org.uk/publication/discussion/dp18-02.pdf
  • Martin Moloney, the new Director General of the JFSC, followed in this theme with a speech in his former capacity as Special Advisor to the Irish Central Bank entitled "Transforming Culture in Regulated Financial Services in Ireland" - https://centralbank.ie/news/article/transforming-culture-in-regulated-financial-services-in-ireland---martin-moloney-special-advisor
  • Does this focus on "workplace culture" work? Huw Thomas argues that it does not - no-one knows (or can agree on) what culture is or how you fix it. Too much of a focus on culture also has other drawbacks - non executives and boards should think instead in terms of behavioural risk as a much broader topic than culture, something which requires a different approach to people risk.

Speaker:Huw Thomas Carey Olsen

Time:1230pm - 2pm
