The Human Side of Business Continuity Planning
October 19 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Disruptions resulting from disasters have rippled across supply chains, shaken entire industries and taken their toll on employee, customer and partner relations. Not surprisingly, organizations of all types and sizes are making crisis preparedness and response a key focus of their business continuity planning. Yet, even though your company’s business continuity plan most likely serves to protect your company’s physical assets, such as its data, network(s), core business applications and facilities, how well does it address the human side of disasters?
It’s important to build resiliency into your business operations, but it’s just as important to build resiliency into your human capital. One way to achieve human capital resiliency is to ensure that your organization has addressed the people-related components of business continuity planning. This presentation outlines risks related to human capital resiliency that could arise in any crisis and provides a framework for addressing them. This presentation is also designed to help you begin to assess how well your organization is currently prepared to handle the human dimensions of a disaster.
Topics of discussion:
1. Human Capital Resilience
2. HR Functions Related to Disaster Planning
3. Human Capital Risks Associated with Crisis Situations
