Companies never need a Continuity Plan until they do. The absence of this plan is only noticed when a disaster strikes. Every time the normal business processes are interrupted unexpectedly, there are costly setbacks that companies face. With a Business Continuity Plan, companies have the potential to minimize the impact and damage of the unplanned events.
A business continuity plan gives an organization the ability to maintain essential processes before, during, and after a disaster.
5 Reasons your organization needs a Business Continuity Plan
A business continuity plan positions your organization to survive serious disruption. It eliminates confusion common to every disaster, providing a clear blueprint for what everyone should do. Beyond business operations, your business continuity plan helps people. By keeping operations going, you are better positioned to keep your employees working, protecting the jobs that support them and their families. You also continue to meet the needs of your customers, impacting their lives, and if you are in a B2B business, the lives of their customers.
