“Risk Management in Italian Companies”

“Risk Management in Italian Companies” Assiteca promotes the first award in Italy for companies investing in risk management. The initiative is based on a survey, carried out with the support of a Technical Scientific Committee, aimed at assessing the degree of knowledge of Italian Companies on risk management, and subsequently bestow the award, during theTop Management Forum organized by Knowità.

Taking risks and being able to manage them has always been the main skill of entrepreneurship and an essential element of company management. Until few years ago, their management had focused only on few specialist areas. Today companies are required to pay more attention to risks threatening their businesses, to keep competing in a more and more turbulent and complex economic and financial scenario.

This is why risk management is now recognized as a process to be combined and completed with the other processes existing within the company, to be managed in a continuing and standardized way by means of organizational solutions acknowledged and shared by the whole organization.

“Risk management – says Luciano Lucca, President and CEO of the Assiteca Group has now become a crucial activity for all companies, redardless of their size. The Assiteca Group has been working in Italy for over 30 years and since the beginning it has been committed to spreading an insurance culture in the world of enterprises. Today, through this award, we wish to reward the companies that showed a particular interest for these issues and spread all the best practices in our country”.
