Businesses often think of earthquakes, fires, hurricanes, and flooding when they plan for unexpected events. These events are important to consider, but the economic downturn has made businesses vulnerable to much smaller changes, like a key vendor going out of business or several employees falling ill at once.
Want to prepare your business for large or small impacts? The upcoming webinar “A Roadmap to Business Resiliency,” held on Sept. 23 by the IRS and key partners, will provide a roadmap for businesses on how to anticipate and recover from a variety of unexpected events. The session will include tips on recognizing and reducing risk, writing a business continuity plan, buying business interruption insurance, preparing and assisting employees, and making helpful community partnerships.
Speakers from the Washington State Emergency Management Division, IRS, U.S. Small Business Administration, Federal Emergency Management Agency, and Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner will participate in the webinar and answer questions.
The webinar is free to all participating businesses. For more information or to register for the webinar, visit the event page.
