With COVID-19 (Coronavirus) rapidly spreading throughout the United States, now is the time to prepare for how your organization will respond to various situations if the virus directly affects business continuity.

But, does your organization have a plan for how the business will continue to operate when faced with a pandemic illness like this or other unplanned incidents, such as natural disasters, theft of business information, or fire?

There is an imperative need to have plans, methods, and systems in place to cope with destructive natural events that provide advance warning (such as an epidemic, pandemic, or hurricane), as well as unanticipated natural events such as earthquakes, floods, and tornadoes. The highest priority, therefore, is pragmatic: plan and be prepared for natural disasters and their aftermath so that the business can survive and recover.

Join us on April 10 for an all-new webinar with Attorney Nita Beecher of Fortney Scott and emergency preparedness expert Lucien Canton, CEM on how to develop a business continuity action plan to manage operational and business risks so you can continue business in the event that normal operations need to be suspended due to a public health emergency like the possible outbreak of COVID-19 or any other circumstances that are out of your control.

After attending this webinar, you’ll be able to:

  • Draft and implement your own business continuity plans to mitigate the harmful effects COVID-19 could have on your workforce
  • Develop a flexible policy for working hours and remote work in response to this public health emergency
  • Anticipate the impact supply-chain disruptions could have on your business, and educate business leaders on action steps they should be taking to minimize financial supply-chain-related risks
  • Elevate HR’s role in emergency response and business continuity planning overall
