It’s that time of year again where most organizations have either put the finishing touches on their annual business plan or are getting ready for that critical 2 day off site planning session. The one box that is often over looked is business continuity because most organizations struggle with how to get started.
We’ve put together a few links that should help this year’s business continuity planning be a success:
- IT Support Indianapolis The importance of having the right IT support structure cannot be overlooked. It’s impossible to turn back the clock if the basics haven’t been covered. Make sure to check out this primer from our friends at Leap Managed IT.
- Creating a Business Response Plan What do you do when water fills your facility or a tornado has been sited in the area? Keeping your employees safe is your most important role as a leader. This article from Total Restoration will help.
- Educate Your Employees Disaster can strike at home as easily as it can at the office. Help your employees prepare. As we all know the people make the organization and if they are unable to work or take care of issues at home it will have a dramatic impact on your business.
You might not cover all of the key items this year and expect it to take time to develop a well vetted plan that fits your organization. Make sure to test your plan as well. It can be as simple as a fire drill to see how the team responds and understand where improvements are needed.
