Creating a Business Crisis-Strategy is Very Important to Your California Business Insurance
What would you do if your entire office staff was at work and a crisis hit? Panic? Scream? Run Away? Although those may seem like the easiest solution to the problem, they are not very professional at all. We believe that each small business should have a Crisis-plan outlined and on file so that if a sudden issue should arise, your staff will be equip to handle it. Your California business insurance should cover immediate damages, but during the re-build process, it is important to maintain company structure.
Each office building is unique. Each staff member will handle a crisis in a different way, so it is very important to create a clear crisis-communication strategy that each staff member is comfortable with. Whether it be a company bankruptcy, a lawsuit, an office fire, a sudden merger or a product recall…the outline should be clearly written and given to each employee for future use. It is a good idea for the plan to be printed and kept in each employee’s desk and at home. In case the office building is not usable immediately, each staff member will know what to do from home.
California business insurance can cover employee benefits, property damages, liability and much more. Each business should be covered up to a certain dollar amount that will protect any unforeseen damages…but a national crisis or threat, create a much different procedure. Be sure to meet with your staff regularly and keep them informed of any changes in the plan.
