Have a Disaster Contingency Plan for Your Business?

In reviewing countless articles and blogs predicting workplace trends for 2014, one struck HRInsights as relevant, timely, and very actionable:

Be prepared for disaster—both natural and otherwise.

-Rieva Lesonsky, CEO of GrowBiz Media


Whether you believe in global warming or not, the ever-increasing frequency of natural disasters and extreme weather conditions means businesses need to be prepared.  West Virginia (water supply disruption), California (fire), New Jersey (hurricane), and Colorado (flood).  And, these were just in the last 2 years.  Don’t just consider how a disaster or extreme weather could affect you (and your employees), but also how it might impact customers and suppliers.  If you did not have safe water or a reliable supply of energy or if your employees could not make it to work, do you have a back-up plan?

The “otherwise” disasters referenced above are man-made disasters which include incidents of workplace violence and, as another example, the accidental death of a key employee.  With the incidence of workplace shootings seemingly on the rise (or at least the media attention to it), it’s important to take employee complaints seriously. Develop a plan for dealing proactively with conflicts and communicate a plan to deal with the worst-case scenario.  Also, remember to review important company policies at least once a year with your employees, including a brief review of the Disciplinary Action Procedures, and update your succession plans during every annual organizational audit.

    I as well as my buddies happened to be following the good recommendations from your site and all of a sudden I had an awful feeling I never thanked the website owner for them. The men are actually as a consequence very interested to see them and have in effect simply been taking pleasure in them. Many thanks for indeed being very accommodating and also for making a decision on this sort of fine ideas most people are really desperate to understand about. My very own honest apologies for not saying thanks to you sooner.
