BCI Releases Second Edition Coronavirus Organizational Preparedness Report

The results of the Business Continuity Institute’s (BCI) second edition Coronavirus Organizational Preparedness Report provide encouraging evidence of improvement in the actions taken by organizations in the fight against COVID-19.

Some of these improvements include new and enhanced HR/Staff measures, from more advanced planning if a staff member is diagnosed with the COVID-19, a much more widespread use of working from home, to measures to support staff in self-isolation and providing mental health aid.

From a business continuity perspective, the BCI is reporting that most organizations have officially activated their business continuity plans and are looking at their sustainability for the coming months.

“Over two thirds (67.6%) are providing staff with regular communications and guidance about mental health and nearly 70% (69.8%) are ensuring that staff have a designated point person to go to should they have personal concerns about COVID-19.”

Some organizations are also beginning to think about the pathway to recovery and the trigger points for action. This may feel premature when case numbers are still growing exponentially, but the pandemic will subside.
