The Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) has evolved from a relatively unknown requirement to a present reality, and companies continue to adapt their plans to comply with the mandate. The challenge presented by the ORSA requirement is to develop a process and produce a summary report that closely matches the unique goals, policies, and practices of the insurer, while avoiding a cookie-cutter approach. This challenge is also an opportunity to take a fresh look at the organization’s risk protocols, deployment of capital, and ERM-related computer systems, perhaps leading to meaningful changes or simply confirming the adequacy of the current practices. This paper provides tips to facilitate the process, avoid fundamental mistakes, and prepare the summary report efficiently.

Public and private companies must generate a wide array of business reports and presentations on a recurring basis. Examples include external financial reports and compliance certifications, internal monthly management and board reports, reports that respond to regulatory requirements around risk management, and corporate sustainability reports. Many companies still rely on a combination of desktop authoring tools, email, shared drives, general purpose collaboration tools, and external printing services to produce these reports. The result is increased cost and time, lower staff productivity, greater risk of errors, and reduced business agility. The International Data Corporation believes business reporting is best addressed with a purpose-built solution. This white paper explores how the Workiva cloud-based solution, Wdesk, is transforming business reporting in large companies by providing an end-to-end solution.

Today’s managers are being asked to do more with less. For many managers, it’s a near-impossible task. They often struggle to identify inefficiencies in their departments and resort to small cost-cutting measures that make a trivial difference to the bottom line. They want to do more, but they don’t have the budgets or resources. Without the ability to make changes that will save their organizations millions of dollars, they can’t win the attention of process management resources inside the enterprise. What they need is a way to apply process improvement thinking on a smaller scale—a way to make big, lasting changes that will help their organizations run smarter and leaner without breaking the bank. We believe financial reporting is an area where managers can make giant leaps in efficiency and cost savings— using the resources they have, within the boundaries of their existing budgets. By applying a process improvement framework to their existing workflows, managers can effect

Until very recently, reporting teams have had few worthy alternatives for collecting, presenting, and analyzing complex data. Finance professionals have been asked to do more with dated software and provide valuable insights with antiquated processes. Advancements in desktop software and use of the cloud may have shifted a dated process from pencil and paper, but it has also left us with too many moving parts and too many unconnected documents. As the landscape of business reporting continues to evolve, it is critical for organizations to keep a pulse on emerging opportunities to improve collaboration, increase productivity, and help them select the right solution for the job. Information is the foundation of business analysis and strategy, and preserving the quality of information as it is gathered and shared is crucial to success.

Webinar Published By: Workiva     Published Date: Jul 14, 2016
The future value of an organization greatly depends on how effective management is at foreseeing future events with a high degree of confidence. However, no matter how confident a management team may be in a given growth strategy or current operation, the future is not something that can be predicted. As boards place greater scrutiny on the discipline of risk management and as investors demand greater disclosure of firm information, the connected disciplines of risk management and financial disclosure will likely become further intertwined. Join Mike Rost, Vice President of Vertical Solution Strategy at Workiva, as he discusses how the discipline of risk management is connected to the requirements of financial disclosure, directional changes, and how to mature your process with evidenced-based risk management.
