Having a plan that helps keeps your company open for business during a crisis is vital. Here’s how this international standard can help risk managers deliver.
It’s one thing to have to deal with the immediate effects when disaster strikes your business. But it’s another to make up for the lost working hours, any dip in profit and potential damage to your company’s reputation. These are the knock-on effects when businesses cease operations so they can recover.
“In today’s world, there is an ever-increasing array of risks facing all businesses, including natural disasters, human error or intent to damage and technological failure,” says Brendan Seifried, Director of Workplace Recovery Solutions, EMEA for Regus. “The impact of these hazards can be catastrophic, whether directly affecting the organisation, or indirectly interrupting their supply chain, vendors or business partners.”
All is not lost if, as risk manager, you’re confident that your Business Continuity Management System (BCMS) empowers the company’s workforce to keep calm and carry on.
