Provides practical advice to help organisations develop plans to manage external or internal threats such as a flu pandemic, industrial disputes, transport network disruption or terrorist action. The severity of the impact will differ depending on the duration of the disruption; however, preparation around ‘loss of people’ has many re-usable aspects across differing disruptions.

The purpose of this report is to explain the methodologies behind risk management and where HR should make a contribution in planning and executing the resulting plans. The report, produced in partnership with the Business Continuity Institute, identifies seven core impact areas to be considered in business continuity management (BCM) planning:

  • reputation
  • customers
  • supply chain
  • people
  • information and communication
  • sites and facilities
  • finance.
