step by step or a package
Services step by step
Services are described separately as some organizations prefer a step by step approach.
However, these services can be combined in one package. Usually, we work with a global risk assessment first plus a gap assessment to review all policies and processes and determine where you stand as a company.
This leads to a strategy and plan which risks to address first and where to do a further deep dive, with human rights impact assessments, to better understand what needs to be done to mitigate the risks.
