  • You’ve likely already heard, and seen first-hand, the link between sleep deprivation and workplace accidents. You probably recognise the signs of extreme tiredness (yawning, restlessness, head nodding, poor concentration, etc.) and know which policies and procedures are in place to address employees operating while tired. Yet we consistently see employees who are fatigued continue to operate, creating significant risks to themselves and others.

    Join Jenny Krasny as she exposes the truth about the stigma of fatigue and discusses how you could be inadvertently reinforcing a culture of shame in your workplace.

    Walk away from this webinar equipped with knowledge about fatigue risk, an understanding of how to assess your fatigue culture and some basic tools to make a positive difference.

    Learning Objectives:
    • To appreciate your own perspectives on fatigue and impact this has on the culture in your workplace
    • To equip you with some basic tools to gain awareness about the impacts of fatigue in your organisation
  • Concentrations of credit, particularly those related to commercial real estate loans, have been a common factor in bank distress during economic downturns. Since the financial crisis, regulators have been laser focused on ensuring that the nation’s largest financial institutions – those with $10+ billion in assets – have sound stress testing and capital planning programs in place to ensure financial stability.

    The focus is trickling down to the community bank level and examiners are now asking smaller institutions to have appropriate programs in place. For many community bankers, there is uncertainty as to what examiners expect, as well as a lack of resources and expertise to comply. There is also a misconception about the value of stress testing, with attitudes ranging from “it’s a necessary evil” to “it is an integral part of our strategic planning process.”

    EDR, in partnership with sister company Trepp, is pleased to offer this complimentary webinar “Stress Testing 101 – Best Practices for the Community Banker.”

    Attendees with get answers to some commonly asked questions, including:

    -What is a stress test?
    -What is capital adequacy stress testing?
    -What are the regulators’ expectations?
    -What are the larger banks doing?
    -What is the current state of stress testing?
    -What do stress testing results look like?
    -What macroeconomic variables go into projections?
  • Recent enforcement actions by bank regulators are heightening the need to establish formal policies for third party vendor management. Financial institutions that use outside firms for all types of underwriting and other bank functions are ramping up their oversight of outside firms and for some, the data management burden is not insignificant. This timely event will focus specifically on how risk managers can develop effective policies for managing outside vendors for appraisals and environmental assessments.

    EDR is pleased to host a webinar on this timely topic with Mitch Kreeger, a well-known subject matter expert on valuation, environmental and seismic risk, and regulatory compliance topics, will share his insights and advice on establishing an effective vendor management policy for appraisers and environmental professionals. Kreeger will explore the myriad ways that attendees can improve vendor management, from initial project bidding to vendor selection to monitoring vendors over time.

    At this educational webinar, attendees will receive advice on managing relationships with appraisers and environmental consultants, including answers to the following:

    • What should we consider in selecting the “right” vendor for the job?
    • How do we find quality appraisers? EPs?
    • What guidance should our institution be giving our appraisers and EPs?
    • What criteria should we be using to grade vendors and monitor performance?
    • How are banks facing today’s vendor management challenges?
  • Smart grid has emerged as a fast-growing area in the past five years. However, it is not one big market; it is an amalgamation of different sectors, technologies, products, and components. Installation of smart meters is considered the first step toward smart grid implementation. The smart meter rollout in Europe is well under way, boosted by the European Union legislation to achieve 80 percent coverage by 2020. However, there are other growth areas, beyond smart meters, that are interesting for U.S. companies to invest into.

    For example, the U.S. Commercial Service, part of the U.S. Department of Commerce, helps U.S. companies expand their exports to overseas markets. Around the world, 1,400 Commercial Service officers promote U.S. business interests abroad. In this briefing find out what the company can do to support export objectives in the smart grid space.

    This analyst briefing also will highlight and discuss the opportunities that exist for the US companies within the European smart grid market, including a special offer available to those interested in European Utility Week, the largest and most comprehensive Smart utility event in Europe. About 10,000 visitors and 450 solution providers will do business, network and share best practices in Vienna this year.
  • One of the most influential figures in the workplace is the front-line supervisor, who plays a pivotal role in determining what gets done, how it gets done and what gets ignored. Measuring supervisor safety performance, therefore, is critical to ensure the processes designed to build and sustain safety excellence are being completed in a quality way.

    Drawing on practical research findings, Caterpillar Safety Services Senior Consultant for Australia, Jenny Krasny, will explain the process of identifying measures that motivate supervisors to lead zero-incident performance on the front line.

    Learning Objectives:
    •Explore the measures that matter in a culture of safety excellence
    •Understand the supervisor’s role in creating and sustaining safety excellence
    •Identify the sources of feedback that drive excellent supervisor performance
  • Drivers are often uncomfortable with the idea of GPS vehicle tracking. When they learn that GPS tracking is about improving their productivity, safety and job security—not monitoring their every move—they’re far more likely to support the solution.

    During this webinar you will discover how to overcome concerns by communicating how GPS vehicle tracking can:

    - Protect drivers in unsafe or remote areas
    - Defend drivers during customer disputes
    - Enable help to respond quicker to roadside emergencies
    - Reduce accidents by improving unsafe driver behaviors
    - Exonerate drivers from false claims

  • Among the top challenges lenders face today is the need to meet higher expectations set by the OCC and the Federal Reserve governing the use of third-party vendors. While the guidelines were released over a year ago, there is still confusion about what institutions should be doing.

    One thing, however, is certain. Effective vendor management takes resources, and many institutions are finding it necessary to add staff and/or technology to help with the cause, particularly smaller institutions. The regulators have made it clear, vendor management is not just a one-time assessment, but is an ongoing process, and monitoring vendors long term is as important as the initial due diligence.

    EDR is pleased to host a webinar on this timely topic on Wednesday, August 12, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. EST. Scott Roller, former head of vendor management at Citigroup, will provide clarity on the new regulations and help break down regulator expectations into easy-to-understand terms. Roller will explore key dimensions that attendees can use as the foundation for building out their own robust vendor management oversight program, from initial vendor risk classification all the way through ensuring adequate executive engagement in vendor management.

    Attendees will learn best practices for satisfying regulators with this educational workshop, including answers to the following:
    • What does the latest regulatory guidance on vendor management require?
    • What are the biggest headaches banks are facing in complying with them?
    • What advice is recommended for smaller banks struggling with limited manpower/resources?
    • What are bank examiners looking for during audits?
    • What are the latest best practices for policies and procedures?
    • How are banks coping with the need to track and monitor vendors?
    • What are the most common shortcomings that audits reveal?

    Attendees will also receive a free copy of a white paper on vendor oversight and the cost of compliance.
