Business Continuity:
Staying on Course During a Pandemic

We’re learning unpredictable events–like the current pandemic–can have a severe impact on business operations. Many business owners now understand that having a plan can help soften the impact and keep their businesses moving forward.

Here are some key areas to consider:

  1. Prepare for Workforce Impacts
    • Have a strategy that enables employees to work and feel secure. For example, shift rotations, working from home, etc.
    • Think creatively about scenarios that could work for your employees
  2. Communicate your Plans
    • Make sure your employees know what to expect–both short- and long-term
    • Ensure customers are in-the-know regarding business model changes, articulate how those changes may impact them
  3. Understand your Supply Chain
    • Track your inventory and supply needs closely to adjust to shifting demand
    • Identify alternate vendors in case a change is needed
  4. Manage Cash Flow and Capital
    • Plan for both cash flow and liquidity needs, now and in the future
    • Create projections to help you weather the storm
  5. Limit Liability
    • Keep in step with new and evolving federal, state, and local regulations. Consult experts when needed.
    • Review contracts and business agreements to maintain a clear understanding of obligations
  6. Beware of Cyber Risks
    • Be aware of heightened risks during times of crisis–people may use the crisis as a cover for malicious actions
    • Be extra vigilant for fraudsters and potential spoofing through emails, calls, and texts
