Although the interplay between human resources and security may not be evident, integrating strong security risk management (SRM) practices into all aspects of the employee cycle is critical to ensuring staff safety. In this session, we will explore how security and HR staff can work together to build SRM into humanitarian operations by incorporating security responsibilities at all levels of the organisation.

Through three case studies, we will explore how NGOs have conceptualised the relationship between people management and security functions, the importance of adequate staff support in preventing security risks from materialising, and how implementing effective security practices helps organisations to achieve their duty of care towards employees.
