Risk Performance Optimization (RPO)
Risk management outcomes are a function of the quality of the business processes that influence them. Improve the business process that may influence exposure to risk and claims, and the outcomes will improve. To meet the challenges associated with improving the collective processes that drive claim outcomes and costs, WTW has developed Risk Performance Optimization (RPO), an advisory service led by our senior consultants to improve daily risk management execution.
