Preparing business continuity plans

Unplanned events happen in business. The importance of having a plan in place that will allow you to return your business to some level of normal operations quickly so you can restore your income, your employees’ jobs and the goods and services you supply to your customers cannot be understated.

Continuity planning and disaster recovery is about setting out a framework for how you, your staff and your business will react when faced with a crisis that potentially stops or interrupts business operations.

For a business continuity plan template, visit the Business website and search “business continuity”.
