“The COVID-19 pandemic threw risk professionals into the organizational spotlight overnight. The function delivered in a big way,” said Andrea Brody, chief marketing officer at Riskonnect. “Risk professionals are key to an organization’s success, especially during times of crisis and recovery. The profession works diligently to protect the business and should be celebrated for its determination and success.”
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates risk management job growth of 19% through 2026. This rate, which is a faster average than most occupations, is expected to pick up even further as organizations ramp up hiring to strengthen the risk management function in the wake of the pandemic.
“The demand for risk talent and expertise has never been more urgent. The field is bright for both existing and rising practitioners, and we’re excited to raise awareness of the important contributions the function makes every day,” added Brody.
The selected Riskonnect All-Stars work across a variety of industries, including healthcare, education, non-profit, hospitality, food, energy, logistics and transportation, and the business, risk, and insurance services sectors. Each practitioner shares their personal journey to risk and compliance, including how they got into the profession and their advice for those starting out in their risk management career.
