People across the UK are being affected by the Pandemic Flu, whether directly suffering illness or simply adjusting their daily routines. Various Schools and centres have been closed and the National Pandemic Flu Service launched as the latest measure to ease pressure on GPs.
Many businesses, especially those in the South East, are starting to find their business continuity plans put to the test. Employers have a duty of care to their staff and we are all being asked to fight the spread of the virus.
In these times we can’t take for granted uninterrupted access to work places or the constant availability of staff. This is when good business continuity plans add real value to the business and enable firms to take full advantage of remote technologies, tele-working and flexi-hours.
If you don’t already have secure remote access to business data, or a business continuity plan in place (and fully communicated), now is the time to take action!
