Are you ready for a closure?
#Businesses in Hershey, Pennsylvania have been forced to answer this question over the last few days. This begs the question for you and your #LehighValley business, do you have a solid business continuity and disaster recovery plan in place?
All too many businesses think this will never be needed. Locally we can easily recall the rough winter we experienced just a few months ago where many businesses either could not open on different days or had delayed openings or early closings. And let's not forget that it was just about a week ago when a tornado touched down not far from the Lehigh Valley much less what is occurring right now in Hershey.
While we cannot control what mother nature may bring us, we can be better prepared to keep our businesses generating revenue so employees can stay employed and company goals can still be met.
As the old saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. A little precaution before a crisis occurs is preferable to a lot of fixing up afterward!
