COVID-19 and Your Business Continuity Plan

By Oyster Consulting LLC

In light of the evolving progression of the COVID-19 virus, today’s podcast “COVID-19 and Your Business Continuity Plan” discusses what firms should be considering when it comes to their Business Continuity Plan.  Are you ready to provide the critical services to your clients if you must close your business during a quarantine?  What if 20% of your employees can telecommute, but are sick?

There are no boiler plate approaches to business continuity planning that will work like one designed for your business.  So, spend some time soon reviewing your plan.  Ask yourself if it will work or not and amend it, as necessary.  And if you want to be truly ready, practice it.  It is much easier to resolve gaps in a test than during a time of crises, and clients will remember if you are able to serve them well during their time of need.
