Workplace in Crisis: How to Create an Effective Emergency Preparedness Plan - on CDWhen it comes to a crisis affecting your workplace, the question is increasingly "when" and not "if."
You need to be ready not only to deal with the immediate aftermath of a crisis, such as protecting employees and responding to a myriad of government agencies, but also the fallout that follows - whether it’s damage to your reputation among customers and the public, extensive damage to a facility, operations, and communications, disruption of the supply chain, workers in need of counseling and reassurance, or the need to lawfully set up remote and telecommuting worksites.
And the time – the only time – to prepare is now, before the crisis hits. Join us for an in-depth webinar on February 6 and find out how to get prepared.
