Paper with words BCP Business Continuity Plan Creating a business continuity plan is essential

Part of being a good business leader in Las Vegas, NV, is preparing your company for emergencies and unforeseen situations. In the wake of a disaster or widespread incident, could your business survive and continue to operate efficiently? If you're not ready for such events, you could face economic turmoil or even the shutdown of your company. Creating a business continuity plan is essential.

Looking at Your Technology

Thanks to advances in communication, data storage, and processing, you can do more for your customers and employees than ever before. Ensure that you have the following capabilities:

  • Sufficient storage for all documents, videos, materials and other data
  • Effective project management and tracking systems
  • The ability to recover and restore all the needs of your business

Setting up for Remote Working
Part of a business continuity plan should include consideration for working offsite. If something such as a flood or fire destroys part or all of your building, you need a way to continue carrying out the day-to-day operations of your company. Be prepared to set up employees to work from home and access your servers. Train employees on how to use video conferencing and other virtual meeting programs. If possible, consider temporarily moving to another office.

Purchase Insurance
Your commercial property insurance should cover damage your building and materials suffer. It will also pay for the efforts of a professional disaster cleanup company. However, to compensate for lost revenue and to keep up with payroll in the aftermath of an emergency, you'll need business interruption insurance. In an emergency response plan, you should choose interruption coverage that will also pay for relocation.

Practice
Once you come up with a plan, test it, and run through it. Make sure your employees are ready to make the necessary adjustments at a moment's notice.
You may never have to deal with a crippling disaster at work. If you do, you'll have peace of mind.
