Newport Business Association www.newportbusinessassociation.co.uk ran a business protection meeting. 27th January 2012. 7.45am Coach & Horses, Newport Essex
Protect yourself from disruption by having a business continuity plan.
A few years ago, the emergency services were summoned to a major warehouse blaze.
Fortunately there were no workers in the building at the time but damage to the premises was catastrophic. The decision was made to invoke their full Disaster Recovery Contract and within a few hours key members of staff were working in their recovery centre as per a plan that had been previously written and tested.
They were prepared and able to continue delivering services in the face of a major disaster because of good management principles – would you be able to meet your commitments to customers in such a situation?
What is Business Continuity?
Business Continuity Management (BCM) is a process which helps organisations respond to, and recover from, any kind of disruptive incident.
Who should do it?
Every business, no matter what size, should have some kind of business continuity plan in place. This can be a very simple and inexpensive process, especially for smaller businesses.
Is there any help available?
Yes! NBA is bringing together and offering lots of free advice and assistance. Come and see our specialists on 27th January, Coach & Horses, Newport.
If you have even a simple plan in place, it will cut down on disruption and uncertainty, make life easier for your staff, give your customers reassurance, enhance your reputation and may even have insurance benefits.
Premises burnt down – how can I cope?
