Culture Conscious

A risk culture database to help organisations meet cultural challenges and achieve their desired risk culture

How well do you understand your organisation’s risk culture and where you compare against your industry peers?

Driven by competitive and regulatory pressures, risk culture sits at the top of many Board agendas. Measuring and monitoring risk culture profiles is critical for gaining traction on transitioning towards an organisation’s desired risk culture.

Based on Deloitte’s proprietary Risk Culture Assessment Framework, Culture Conscious offers organisations an accelerated understanding and observation of their risk culture profile across population demographics.

The existing challenges when assessing risk culture

It has been found that the key challenges across financial and non-financial institutions attempting to measure and monitor their culture are:

  1. What risk culture indicators to use
  2. How to develop a cost effective, efficient repeatable approach
  3. Where to access benchmark comparisons

Culture Conscious was developed to address all three of these challenges.

Combined with Deloitte’s Risk Culture Assessment Framework, industry experience and subject matter expertise, Culture Conscious can help make sure organisations have the right risk culture to support their business goals, strategy and long-term sustainability.
