COMPANY WHERE WON: Aflac

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Project name: Spreading Our Wings: Putting the E in EGRC

Description: The Enterprise Global Risk and Compliance (EGRC) program at Aflac has undergone a significant cross- divisional transformation to take the program from a siloed, unused platform to a robust global program with full risk dashboards, workflow and reporting. Functions as critical as third-party risk management, SOX certifications and enterprise risk are fully functioning. Multiple cross-functional governance committees were established to keep momentum and ensure the investment met the targets. The balance to get right was between people, process and technology, paving the way for global expansion, cost savings and global risk reporting.
