Business continuity planning involves defining any and all risks that can affect a company’s operations, making it an important part of the organization’s risk management strategy. These risks may include natural disasters—fire, flood, or weather-related events, pandemics, and cyber-attacks. While many companies have a business continuity plan in place, some learned quickly that their plan was lacking provisions specific to workforce continuity when, in a matter of just a few weeks, millions of Americans were not able to go to a physical work location.

The first hurdle many faced was how to transition their entire workforce to 100% work from home. In addition to the hardware considerations, data access and security was a major hurdle for some companies that were scrambling to order laptops from Amazon while establishing protocols to ensure their infrastructure was secure with their entire workforce logging in remotely.
After a few weeks, most companies began to settle into what we’re still calling “the new normal”. For the most part, companies have a handle on the technology (secure remote login, data backup, and data access). Internal and external meetings are being conducted via video collaboration tools such as Zoom and Microsoft Teams among many others. Companies are using many different mediums to overcommunicate and stay in touch with their employees and clients. However, most companies still do not have a formal workforce continuity plan in place for the next time the business world is turned upside down.
If you fall into this camp, please join us on Thursday, June 25th for a live webinar with Fran Cardaci, VP of Client Success with Automatic Data Processing. She will tap into her 25 years of HR leadership experience that covers corporate HR, consulting, contract staffing, and team development to share her vast knowledge of workforce continuity planning. She will be doing a deep dive on what you need to do to plan, test, and maintain the workforce element of your business continuity plan.
