Uh-oh! What was that white stuff laying on the ground this morning? You can bet your bottom dollar it wasn’t dandruff…………….so who’s on snow alert in your business? How many minutes/hours have you lost already to people checking the weather online, chatting about it round the photocopier, planning what they will do when the next “snow day” comes along.
So the question is could your business survive another bad Winter? Do you have a Business Continuity Plan? Business Continuity is the survival of your business in times of emergency. That could be bad weather conditions, flu epidemic, terrorist attack, computer virus infection or any occasion that affects your day to day operations.
Times are hard enough without potential disruptions waiting to trip you up as well.
Hopefully you already have in place data storage facilities, contact trees and alternative work locations just in case. Those are fine providing your staff can get into work.
With the bad snow conditions of recent Winters, even parking at work has been challenging. Flexible workers are ideal in situations such as this. A workforce to call upon to hold the fort while your experienced employees deal with the important stuff. It may be someone to answer the phone, clear the car park, call Clients to advise them of the situation – who would you call? Why not allow Wote St. Employment Bureau to be part of your Business Continuity Plan? Hopefully we will not be needed on a large scale emergency, but how often do those smaller emergencies happen? Tummy bugs, colds, transport problems, family crisis – we can help your business survive all of these.
By talking to you about your business, taking a genuine interest and visiting your premises, we can build a detailed profile of the people you need, before you need them. People register with us every day. Being aware of your requirements allows us to preselect staff that would fit into your work environment, this way when you need someone in an emergency we can get them to you straight away.
What happens if we don’t have someone available when you need them?
We’ll be honest and tell you. We will continue looking for someone, but we will give you the opportunity to look elsewhere. The only way we can survive is by repeat business, it is in our interest to treat our Clients with respect and honesty.
What should you do now?
