HeaterMeals and Business Continuity Planning
There is a growing movement today among companies to maintain critical business functions during a crisis. The idea is called Business Continuity, and it ensures that daily tasks such as project management, system backups, change control, and maintaining a help desk will continue during a disaster. Business Continuity Planning (BCP) calls for businesses to plan ahead and map out strategies so when a crisis does occur, a company can continue to interact with suppliers, customers and other entities as it normally would. The key is advance planning, and not waiting until a disaster strikes to react.
Businesses Continuity planners suggest adopting a methodology for emergency operation, unique to each company’s needs. Firms need to put plans in place so vital functions such as electrical, computer and phone systems, production, transportation and other needs can continue. These methodologies and strategies make up the Business Continuity Plan.
While creating a plan, companies need to consider maintaining the most important system in their company, the human system. Humans are a little more complicated to plan for than electrical or transportation systems. Humans require a daily intake of resources to function properly, namely food and water. That means businesses should consider keeping a store of food and water available for their employees as part of their Business Continuity Plan.
