How can your organisation be sure that its contingency planning can maintain as many 'business as usual' services as it can? People, processes, and control measures are key elements to ensure the resiliency and flexibility needed to overcome any potential risks
There is a shortage of certain key skills and an urgent need to re-purpose existing capabilities to meet new challenges. Our contingent and other sourcing solutions can solve immediate continuity or scale shortages. Many companies have recently hired or continue to hire during this time. Some are being asked to repurpose manufacturing capability to produce products that are in short supply. Getting staff into certain key roles quickly is more important than ever. As well as finding the skills that you need, we have the digital screening and onboarding capabilities to make sure your new people are productive from day one.
Our business continuity consultancy gives companies the professional support they need to identify and resolve possible failures, and our business continuity testing service allows them to test their business continuity plan to the limit – putting it under the same amount of stress it would face during a real crisis – to reveal any flaws.
Scenario planning is equally important in the public sector, which must maintain vital services during difficult times. Our resilience services help local councils to keep collecting revenue, paying benefits and keeping their property assets in good condition. And our emergency out-of-hours solution for councils and housing associations means that people can get vital support when they need it most.
