Control & Planning
Risk based approaches should be used by organisations when it comes to setting the objectives for valuing people and the processes required to deliver them. All activities must consider prevailing law, opportunities and risks as well as any other requirements.
An organisation must clearly demonstrate the way it approaches operations planning and control including the way change management and third party service providers are managed.
Organisations must ensure that they possess the required competence levels to deliver the standard including awareness of the standard’s requirements, documented information in line with BS 76000 and effective communications processes covering all stakeholders.
Most importantly, organisations are required to have considered the resources it needs for employees, its environment, infrastructure, knowledge acquisition and control including performance measurement and ongoing monitoring processes.
