UNDERSTANDING BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLANNING
What is a business continuity strategy?
A business continuity strategy helps guide you, your employees and your business through a disaster. Procedures regarding preventative and recovery strategies are planned out before a tragedy occurs, so that everyone knows what to do until normal operations are restored.
Why do you need a business continuity plan?
Since disasters can occur anywhere with little or no warning, it’s crucial that your company has a continuity plan in place. That way, in the unfortunate event that a disaster does occur, everyone will already know how to continue business until the building, your technology and all your important contents can be restored to full pre-loss conditions.
What is the purpose of a business continuity plan?
At ServiceMaster Restore, we understand how crucial every second of business is. Even when the office is unavailable during a disaster, work still needs to get done. The purpose of a business contingency plan is to ensure that you don’t lose all your profits and productivity during a catastrophe. Along with keeping your staff and your essential equipment safe, a business continuity plan will provide information on how to keep operations running smoothly, even when the basecamp is damaged.
Goals of a thoughtful, well-rounded business continuity plan include:
- Minimize serious, long-term interruptions to day-to-day operations
- Limit how severe a disruption is
- Set pre-determined locations to work remotely if the office is severely damaged
- Expedite restoration services
- Minimize financial loss
- Equip employees with proper training and knowledge of what to do if disaster strikes
- Prevent you from closing your doors permanently
