We use Financial and Quantitative Modelling to rethink
but it’s our people who reimagine.
It takes more than an idea. It takes people.
Our commitment to shaping the world we want to live in takes more than an idea. It takes people. It is our people who change the world, and our people philosophy is guided by who we are, our purpose, and our values.

Our Leadership Philosophy
We believe that every person in our business is a leader. Whether you are leading yourself, other people, project outcomes, the business or the industry. We all are leaders.
Over and above the technical skills and experience you will gain, we support you with a leadership wheel that describes the competencies you will need to demonstrate and master in order to continually grow.
You will have access to a coach, within the business, who will support you through the challenges you will face in learning and practically using the 30 competencies on the wheel.
The coach will not be advising you on what you should become, but rather supporting you in your quest to define that goal for yourself and overcome the challenges you will face in getting there.
We start with the assumption that we have employed driven and skilled people who will thrive in our business. We believe that if the environment is a good fit and the work meaningful, then people will be naturally high performers.
We use a system called OKR’s which refers to Objectives & Key Results. It helps us ensure that each individual in the business is pulling in the same direction, and that all our energies are focused.
As we have evolved towards a higher proportion of virtual work, we have learned that people still need a forum in which they can connect outside of the direct working environment.
Human connections are important to build trust and a greater sense of belonging. For this reason you will be assigned to a squad within Riskworx.
Rituals and Routines
We have weekly Imbizos at which 2 people present on a topic that they feel is interesting or important. It can be business related or not, it is entirely up to them. The Imbizo is 30 minutes long and whoever presents one week, chooses the next pair who will present the following week. The topics can be theme related, serious or completely fun and frivolous. It’s up to you.
The Knowledge Share event is held once a month and is a 90 minute session. The purpose of this session is to share specific learnings that we have taken out of the business. It could be a case study or retrospective of an interesting project that has just been completed, or a discussion around regulatory reform or any other issue that has a direct impact on our work.
Our Town Hall events are held quarterly and this is where we share information about our strategy, business objectives, financial performance and all major issues that affect how Riskworx operates and how we are moving forward. We believe in transparency and every Riskworx employee is an important part of the process, so we believe that the more informed they are the better. We strive to have every voice be a part of the story that we at Riskworx are writing. We truly believe we will be a part of history, so how the story is told and retold, is important to us.
We love social events. The bottom line is we work with cool people, so we like to socialise. Covid has made this a challenge, but we still try and have regular events like online quiz nights, murder mystery events, or other ways to connect. We can’t wait to be able to do it again in person. We encourage anybody in the business to set up any type of social or team building event.
