What happens, for example, if the country is hit by bad weather and staff can’t get in to their workstations? What will you be doing?
Will you shut down for a few days and leave orders unfulfilled and customers angry when their service is interrupted?
You could do, and maybe that’s happened in the past and the goodwill you’ve built up over the years has seen you through.
But in the current competitive climate it doesn’t take much for previously loyal customers to jump ship.
The answer is to be the business which carries on regardless while those around are hamstrung by staff stuck at home or sitting on fogbound roads, going nowhere, least of all to the office.
Here are the contingency plans you can have in place:
The great news is that you can put all of those in place now. As soon as you give us the nod we can have everything set up ready for the first flurry of snow, the worst of the floods or the foggiest of days.
Don’t forget it’s much better to have the workforce safely ensconced at home, beavering away remotely, than to have them facing the frustrations and dangers of the road when things turn bad!
