As Louisiana heads further into hurricane season, it’s increasingly important to have a plan of action for your business in case any disaster strikes.
On the next episode of Small Business Master Class, Capital One Bank Sr. Vice President Ric Kearny shares tips on how to prepare your business for any emergency.
“With the beginning of hurricane season, it serves as a reminder that we need to think about disaster preparedness, but it’s also good to do so because of the different ways we can have a disaster, not just hurricanes,” Kearny told NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune.
“I think it’s time for everybody to step back and look at what they’ve done to prepare for a disaster.”
Kearny shares the following tips for preparing your business for any disaster:
- Before any disaster, have key employees identify critical steps to take to get your business back up and running.
- During the disaster, have clear communication with employees on conducting business during the disaster, including identifying the core business structure, important and secure information, and backing up any files.
- Communicate with customers beforehand on how and where business will continue as usual.
