Human Capital and Emergency Succession Planning

The pandemic certainly has changed things - work, home life, school, socializing, etc. - in ways we would never have imagined. We work at home, school at home, socialize over Zoom, have our groceries delivered, and take all the precautions needed to keep ourselves and our families safe. At present, there is no real end in sight to COVID-19 and no view into what “normal” might look like in the future because the situation changes all the time. It’s hard to know if anyone has figured out the real impact of the pandemic on our home and work lives. For this reason, business continuity planning takes on even more importance since poor planning can hurt our ability to continue day-to-day operations.

Need a Business Continuity Consultant?

Many of the organizations that contact us about business continuity planning already have a BCP that (i) has no life yet, (ii) is on life support, or (iii) is not likely to survive. They desperately want help developing their plan and/or updating and maintaining it. Still often, they don’t know where to begin.

Ready or Not: Hurricane Season Meets Pandemic and Protests

One can't help but think about the ongoing pandemic with its threat of a second surge, the coming hurricane season, and, in many areas, the recent protests. All of these have damaged, or have the potential to damage, or at the very least disrupt, business operations and cause a great deal of stress. It’s not a zombie apocalypse, but it might be close, depending on how the months ahead play out.

Cancel, Postpone, or Go Virtual? How are you handling the pandemic meetings challenge?

Who knows when face-to-face meetings will again be possible? There are some large face-to-face meetings now being held in China and other Asia Pacific nations, but only under extremely strict guidelines and sanitary procedures. That also could be the case in the US, but nobody knows when the "all clear" might sound. We do have to start planning for such meetings in case they can happen, but we also have to decide what to do if they don't.
