Business Continuity

A study carried out by the London Chamber of Commerce identified that:

  • 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to shut within 2 years of the disaster
  • 80% of businesses without a well structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months of a flood or fire
  • 43% of companies experiencing disasters never recover

No business is immune to a crisis but small and medium sized organisations may not have the resources or flexibility of larger companies. A major incident can happen day or night, during weekends and holidays. It may be something as simple as your staff winning the lottery.

A Business Continuity Plan will help you to anticipate those crises that could affect you and to plan for them.

Working with Johnston Robertson Business Consulting creating a robust and relevant Business Continuity Plan will enable clients to:

  • Be better equipped to survive a business crisis
  • Build business confidence for customers and employees
  • Ensure stakeholder confidence

A business’s ability to demonstrate full Business Continuity Management is receiving increasing focus in tender processes. Compliance to BS25999:2007 is becoming the preferred method for a business to demonstrate this, with references to the standard appearing in many pre tender questionnaires. Johnston Robertson Business Consulting is able to support your business through the certification process.
