ENTERPRISE
RISK MANAGEMENT

“For over a decade, I have called upon Sarbey, Lexow & Kaufman to assist us with a wide variety of projects including assisting with acquisitions, conducting internal audits of our various locations and performing financial statement audits of our subsidiaries.  In each case, their team has delivered with professionalism and technical expertise on par with that of the national firms, along with the personal attention of a smaller organization.”  

- Robert H. Lazar, Chief Financial Officer, EVI Industries, Inc.

Every organization strives to align their strategy and business objectives with the appropriate level of risk – the biggest challenge is not avoiding risk, but identifying and taking the right risks needed to:

  • Create and preserve business value
  • Optimize performance
  • Leverage opportunities

Whenever possible, in addition to communicating the results of the testing procedures, upon completion of our testing we recommend cost-effective suggestions for improvement for management to consider.

Enterprise Risk Management (“ERM”) links business strategy and objectives to risks to improve decision making. Effective ERM helps organizations align their business with the appropriate level of risk, while effectively managing risks with the potential to impact achievement of their performance goals.

SLK provides ERM services to include:

  • Conducting an ERM Assessment for your organization
  • Establishing a new ERM program or recasting an existing program
