As a business owner you have to be prepared for unexpected scenarios that could happen anytime to your company. In order to tackle these scenarios, business owners create contingency plans. A contingency plan will develop response to various situations that will affect the business’ operation. Not only will this plan prepare your business for negative events, but also positive ones such as how to handle a big order. Below are 5 common things you should include as a part of your business’ contingency plan.
The loss of a key person can have devastating effects to your business. It may even cause the whole operation to shut down if not managed properly. Preparing your employees for advancement or promotion is one of the most common ways to tackle this risk. You may also want to consider having a key person insurance that will give multiple coverages regarding the loss of a key person.
Scandals, theft, and errors in the management won’t only cause losses to income, but it may also affect the company’s reputation in doing business. Make sure that your company has a system to prevent mismanagement as well as a contingency plan on how to recover in case of such an event.
This plan covers on how your business will recover after having a crisis so it can perform normal operations once again. This plan is typically used by companies who are financially troubled or bankrupt. Aside from how to recover operations, this plan should also include on how to avoid similar situations from happening.
There are multiple crises your company should always be wary of, such as the threat of natural disaster, building fire, job injuries, and even claims made by unsatisfied customers. Make sure to quickly identify these risks and devise a plan to minimize the damage caused when one of these scenarios occur.
Devise a security plan to protect assets in your company, such as key machinery and equipment. Note that assets don’t always have a physical form, because there are intangible assets too such as, databases, company secrets, and brands. If the security plan fails to protect these assets, having a contingency plan will help your business recover if its assets are lost, stolen, or revealed.
