Whether you run a small, medium or enterprise-scale business, there is one area that you cannot afford to ignore, however much it may feel like an irritating distraction: business continuity. This can involve form-filling, detailed process mapping, and attention to details about your company setup that you would rather not be troubled with.
However, there are a number of problems with such a “laissez faire” approach. Firstly, there is no telling when disaster might strike. For instance, a fire might damage your business premises, any stock you hold, and also your IT network. This could take your business out of action for many months. Another reason for being prepared for calamity is that there can be dire financial consequences. If you have no backup plans in place, then you might be unable to trade at a time when you truly need cashflow.
It is therefore highly advisable to have a business continuity expert on your staff to get on top of your disaster planning – and to ensure that there really is a “plan B” in the event of a disaster.
However, the process of business continuity recruitment is quite specialist and time-consuming, and we would strongly advise you to use the services of a company like ours. Here at Acumin we will ensure your business continuity recruitment means you hire a real expert who is a good fit for your company culture.
