Had a client today lose a lot in a building fire. It is a good reminder to have good business interuption and income protection insurance. Up and running almost immediately. There are enough decisions to make, problems to solve and staff to keep employed without the added stress of an insurance problem or worse……none! Thats the immediate stuff starting to get under way.
With a good strategic plan (as we saw during the earthquake) and a team that is engaged with it a company can quickly update the immediate actions that need to occur and alter the tactics if required. The company quickly then realigns and does what is needed.
Times like these are full of uncertainty and tough decisions but they can also pull a team culture together if there is good communication and strong leadership.
