7 tips for keeping your business in business

Every business is vulnerable to unexpected challenges, irrespective of its size. So how
well could your business cope with events such as severe weather, technology failure,
or through disruption due to large scale international events. And how prepared are
you to manage the inevitable consequences arising from these type of events?

This is where business continuity plans become invaluable tools, but when things go
well, all too often this kind of planning and preparation takes a back seat.
To help make businesses more aware of the need for this, we’ve partnered with the
Chartered Management Institute (CMI), the professional body dedicated to raising the
standards of management and leadership, and a perfect partner in our mission to help
UK businesses find better ways of working.

Research published by the CMI revealed that businesses who had a widely agreed
business continuity plan in place, reduced the impact of disruption. Whilst having a
plan can’t guarantee total freedom from failure, it’s the first step in ‘shock-proofing’
your business.

And if you think such plans are the preserve of blue chip companies, think again.
Having a plan that can keep you trading even in the face of flood or IT failure has
proven to make a difference between a viable business or one that’s dead in the water.
