Business Resiliency is a Company-Wide InitativeDownload Now!
Everbridge and the Business Continuity Institute (BCI) recently released its third annual report, “The Emergency Communications Report 2016,” which revealed that global businesses are increasingly aware that the true business resiliency is a company-wide initiative that involves taking accountability for the safety of all staff (whether they are located in the office, at home or on the road). Despite that, the research also showed that many businesses remain unprepared to automate and facilitate critical event management during a time of crisis, as issues remain with optimizing communication plans and procedures for success.
Some key findings include:
- Employees are no longer confined to a single physical location – and critical event management plans need to reflect this growing reality.
- Businesses are not fully prepared to facilitate communications during crisis situations.
- Organizations need to utilize as many communication channels as possible to get information to employees.
- Businesses are not prepared for location-specific events, such as workplace violence or terrorism.
