Risk Mitigation

Risk Mitigation “Risk mitigation: is a strategy to prepare for and lessen the effects of threats faced in a business. Comparable to risk reduction, risk mitigation takes steps to reduce the negative effects of threats and disasters on business continuity.” There is much risk in operating a company. The threats can include operational variance which could result in customer data breaches, out of compliance standards to government mandated requirements, Contract scope creep that ends up costing you more than planned, or changes that had not been fully scoped causing business impacts and higher costs. All these threats are real and by hiring Cogent Group as a third party consultant, we have a fresh perspective on impacts to your business which you may not have considered.

Human Capital Support

 

HR activities can include: human resource planning, recruitment, collective bargaining, training and development, organizational design and classification, pay and benefit administration, staffing and resourcing, performance management, official languages, employment equity and employee assistance programs.” In any business your human capital is the most important asset you have. The best performing organizations have high respect for the company culture, leadership, peer groups and a sense self. That is a complex matrix of how you approach your engagement with your team. If attrition, engagement, performance outcomes are not yielding the right results, The Cogent Group can help drive a strategy to improve. A happy employee equals an engaged high performing team and positively impacts your internal and external customers.

Financial Support

 

“financial support - financial resources provided to make some project possible; "the foundation provided support for the experiment" financial backing, funding, backing, support. resource - available source of wealth; a new or reserve supply that can be drawn upon when needed.” Businesses have a fiscal responsibility for maintaining a balanced business model. That includes for profit and non profit accountability is key. If there are areas causing pain by diluting the effectiveness of revenue, funds or organizational P/L budget Cogent Group can evaluate what is driving those pain points and recommend ways to minimize the effects. If you are in a position where your business is growing exponentially and you need a strong business plan that provides a three to five year trajectory of cost and investment, Cogent Group has 15 years of experience in growth strategies with a very balanced approach. Cogent Group can eliminate the concerns that come with the fiscal unknown. We will structure plans that clearly map out how you can make the most out of what you are earning.
