Have You Prepared for a Business Disaster? | SERVPRO of Marietta West
When you run a business, you have a full-time job as well as an infinite to-do list causing what’s more like an overtime job. It’s reasonable that you have a lot on your shoulders.Whether it’s overseeing recruitment, bookkeeping, inventory or advertising, it’s a lot. And all of your hard work might be compromised if you are not prepared for the worst.
To get to this point, you’ve put in a huge lot of work. That’s a great reason to do everything possible to give your firm the best chance of surviving a disaster.
It may be difficult (if not impossible) to get your company back up and running after a fire, severe storm or other disaster. According to FEMA, 40% of small businesses close permanently after a disaster, with a large percentage of businesses that manage to reopen closing again within a year.
So, how can you make a disaster recovery strategy that works? Having a plan in place for what to do next if your organization is hit by a destructive incident could be the difference between survival and failure.
Around three-quarters of small businesses in the U.S. do not have a disaster plan. It’s only reasonable that businesses that have a plan in place have a better chance of bouncing back.
