People are a business’s vital asset
People control and use assets, perform services and deal with vendors. They also make decisions, pay wages and liaise with clients. People, from plan managers to action owners, need to be involved in your continuity planning.
A few points to consider:
- Is your staff cross-skilled and competent?
- Is safety taken into considertaion?
- Is there always someone to take the place of a key roleplayer?
- Are you welcoming and rewarding ideas from staff?
