Unfortunately, we can all recall events that have seriously impacted businesses over recent years.
Prepare with a plan
The Manchester City Centre bomb, the Buncefield explosion and resulting fire and the flooding during the summer of 2007 are some examples of major incidents which seriously impacted many small, medium and large businesses.
What would the effect be on your customers and your ability to continue with your business if your premises could not be accessed for days or weeks?
Herts County Council recommend that writing a business continuity plan would prepare you for such events and would help your business in becoming more resilient. Planning will help you ensure the key aspects of the business are covered and that you are in the best position to continue your business.
