Understanding Business Continuity Planning

What is a Business Continuity Strategy?

A business continuity strategy helps guide you, your employees, and your business through a disaster. Procedures regarding preventative and recovery strategies are planned out before a tragedy hits so that everyone knows what to do until the restoration of normal operations.

Why Do You Need a Business Continuity Plan?

Since disasters can occur anywhere with little or no warning, your company should have a continuity plan in place. That way, in the unfortunate event that a loss does occur, everyone will already know how to continue business until the building, your technology, and all your essential contents can be restored to pre-loss conditions.

What is the Purpose of a Business Continuity Plan?

At ServiceMaster of Charlottesville, we understand how crucial every second of business is. Even when the office is unavailable during a disaster, work still needs to get done. The purpose of a business contingency plan is to ensure you don't lose all your profits and productivity during a catastrophe. Along with keeping your staff and your vital equipment safe, a business continuity plan provides information on how to keep operations running smoothly even when the basecamp is damaged.

The goals of a thoughtful and well-rounded business continuity plan can:

  • Minimize serious, long-term interruptions to day-to-day operations
  • Limit severe disruption
  • Set pre-determined locations to work remotely if the office is severely damaged
  • Expedite restoration services
  • Minimize financial loss
  • Equip employees with proper training and knowledge of what to do if disaster strikes
  • Prevent you from closing your doors permanently
