Take 10 minutes to help prepare your business
The NNDC and NRF 10 minute plan is designed to help small to medium-sized businesses prepare for, respond to and recover from emergencies, such as flooding, cybercrime and civil unrest.
Whether you are a large, medium or small business disruptions can happen anywhere at any time. Disruption to people (customers and staff) and logistics (supply chain, utilities and transport) are the most frequently occurring problems. Unfortunately, small and medium-sized businesses are often more vulnerable and major disruptions can often prove fatal.
Taking time to plan and prepare your business can save you time and money when something untoward happens. The biggest barriers to being prepared are not making time and thinking it will not happen to your business. It happens to many businesses and those without plans learned the hard way.
Following these straight forward practical steps could lessen the impact on your business, and reduce insurance premiums and claims.
