In the global economy, natural disasters and global crises can affect businesses near and far. From disastrous weather to forest fires to the threat of Coronavirus, businesses around the world have to adapt to ensure work continues to operate smoothly – and to keep employees safe.

We have learned a lot throughout our years in business. Today, we’d like to share our knowledge of how to keep business operations going when crisis hits.

Prioritize Safety

Keeping business operations going is important—but not as important as your employees. As an organization, keeping people safe should be your number one priority. Whenever a crisis occurs, it’s vital that you put your employees first and ensure all are safe and accounted for. After that, you can assess your next steps to make sure employees have a safe environment in which to work.

For example, according to a recent announcement from the CDC, officials are already planning for a world-wide pandemic with the spread of the Coronavirus. They are recommending companies around the world look at teleworking options.

Think Proactively

When a crisis occurs, the last thing you want is to be caught off guard. Keep lines of communication open, have an emergency plan in place and understand any possible threats to your business, before your team is affected by something like inclement weather, virus outbreaks or other unforeseen disasters.

Already have an emergency plan? Great! Now is the time to revisit your plan make sure it includes scenarios for remote working, and to communicate the plan to the full company. Communication from company leaders prior to a disaster is critical, and it allows employees to properly prepare for next steps.

To inform employees of emergency plans and critical business decisions, consider hosting a webcast training or town hall event. When you’re proactive about emergency situations, you can plan effectively to minimize any disruption to your business operations.

Empower Employees to Work Remotely

Disasters and crises can make it both difficult and dangerous for employees to commute to the office. Empower employees to work remotely using collaboration and communication tools to keep your business operating during times of crisis.

Our comprehensive collaboration and unified communication solutions make it easy for employees to work anywhere there is an internet or phone connection. Video conferencing allows for face-to-face meetings, and screen sharing allows for easy sharing of materials. Even if in-office work is important to your organization, collaboration tools that allow employees to work remotely is vital to keep your business operating at 100% when it just isn’t smart or safe to be in the office.

When disaster strikes, it can be crippling to a business. Keep your business running without disruptions and your workforce safe with a plan and the right communication tools.
