Business continuity awareness

What would you do if your business premises were flooded tonight?

How would your clients contact you? Would your stock be damaged? Can you make alternative arrangements at short notice? Could you contact all your staff out of hours?

What does having a Business Continuity plan mean for my business?

In short, competitive advantage. It's good business practice to have a written plan to manage disruptions that could affect the reputation and smooth running of your business. This will help ensure that your business is able to cope with the various risks of disruptions and continue to provide a good service to your customers.

I'm a small business, how can I do this on my own?

  • It's simple to create a quick and effective business continuity plan. Most business owners already know what to do in an emergency and have back-ups in place. However, this is not always written down so your staff may not know what to do.
  • Read the free advice and guidance available by visiting the websites listed below.
  • Create a short Business Continuity plan by following the free "how prepared are you" toolkit.

Be proactive...

  • Spread the word...explain what Business Continuity management is to your staff so that you can all work together during an emergency.
  • Encourage your staff to update their personal contact details with you regularly.
