Any incident, regardless of size or whether it was accidental or intentional can easily cause major disruption to any business. However by planning in advance for the unforeseen you can ensure that your business will be able to resume regular day-to-day running as soon as possible.
This is where you should consider a Business Continuity Plan.
Its purpose is to help you devise strategies that will help you cope with disruptions so that you can continue to deliver your business’s vital goods or services and reduce potential risk to staff.
Why do I need a business continuity plan?
As with any emergency or unforeseen situation, important decisions may need to be made urgently. For example, this could include vital questions, such as:
- How do you help your staff?
- How do you tell the customer that you can’t provide business as usual?
- How do you meet essential deadlines?
