This Is Why You Can’t Afford to Ignore Business Continuity Planning

Maybe you’ve been meaning to think about BCP (Business Continuity Planning). Someday.

After the winter board meeting.

After the product launch.

After you cross the last item off your never-ending to-do list.

The thing is, you can’t afford to wait that long. Because your BCP – or lack thereof – has a direct impact on your bottom line. Here are three things BCP could do for you:

1. Strengthen your brand perception

In a turbulent world, it’s not only prudent to have contingency plans in place for continued operations of your company, it’s rapidly becoming a baseline expectation.
