DISCUSSING YOUR EMERGENCY BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN WITH OTHERS
It is important to discuss the decisions that you make in this plan with others in your business that are potentially affected in a natural disaster or other emergency. Not only will people have great ideas and suggestions regarding how to manage certain situations, it is important to ensure everyone has the same knowledge and awareness before it impacts upon your business.
You may also be unaware of other people’s circumstances, skills and knowledge of the local area and its history when it comes to extreme weather. Disasters or other emergencies is a great way to discover one another’s strengths and get ownership of the actions in your Emergency Business Continuity Plan.
You could try a rehearsal or dry run as a team building activity.
Review your plan regularly to ensure it remains up to date and takes into account people’s and the business’ changing circumstances.
