The speed in which a business rebounds from an emergency depends largely on past and present investments in emergency preparedness. It makes good business sense to practice due diligence and protect company interests (e.g., employees, clients, infrastructure and assets) through conscientious planning and exercise.
Business continuity planning challenges employers to assess all risks and vulnerabilities in order to develop the strategies needed to manage emergency consequences, communicate with employees and customers, protect resources, and sustain productivity.
Employee involvement is equally critical to successful business preparedness planning.
Employers are encouraged to engage employees with drills and exercises, to advocate the benefits of individual and family preparedness, and to include personnel in the emergency planning process.
