#TwitterChat: Ensuring business continuity during and post-COVID-19 crisis
With the economy under severe strain and businesses bracing for tough months ahead, effective planning for business continuity amid the COVID-19 crisis and nation-wide lockdown and beyond is the need of the hour.
With the lockdown 2.0 period coming to an end, where the country is hoping for a graded lifting of restrictions, there are certain measures that will be part and parcel of everyone’s lives – wearing masks and protective gear, social distancing, Work From Home wherever possible. For businesses, liquidity crunch, salary cuts, slowdown in operations, supply chain management and even layoffs, are some tough market realities in their struggle for ‘Revival and Survival’ in the new normal of the post-COVID-19 world.
There are various issues that businesses will have to address, including, but not limited to:
- How to build a business continuity plan beyond COVID-19?
- How can companies be more predictive and proactive in their decision-making?
- Ways to re-imagine a business-as-usual environment that minimises disruptions for the company.
- Prioritising employee & customer safety and ensuring continuous engagement.
- Training & upgrading skills virtually
- Relook at risk management
- Ramping up customer service in times of disruption
- What to do for the longer term?
