PANDEMIC PLANNING & PROCESSES
BIGGEST FACTORS THAT HAVE IMPACTED BUSINESS CONTINUITY.
THE BIGGEST DISRUPTORS IN FUTURE.
OUR ADVICE IN-BRIEF:
Business continuity plans
Reflecting on how these have stood up during the pandemic and revising accordingly. Almost two in three who had pandemic plans in place before the pandemic, found this effective in reducing its impact on their business continuity.
Providing on-the-ground support
In-location health, security and logistic expert support are set to be fundamental in ensuring risks are minimised as much as possible. And when urgent help is required, help is close at hand.
COVID-19 compliance monitoring
Tracking and tracing are commonly spoke of in the media, but organisations will have a task ahead to report on how they are mitigating the risks – communicating what they have done and how they have complied with local legislation – to their employees, customers, investors, and other external stakeholders.
Fit-for-work health screening
Not a new concept to certain sectors, but now the norm for almost every organisation. Fortunately we have digital innovation at hand – but selecting an international provider that is locally compliant will need careful consideration if it is to be successful.
Mental health support
The pandemic appears to have accelerated this need. More than a fifth of the decision makers we spoke to felt this would be of high impact to their business going forward.
