Are You Ready For When Disaster Happens? HR Leads the Way! 


Natural/ man-made disasters are constantly in the news. Southern California recently experienced severe flooding and landslides as a result of the El Niño condition, a huge and dangerous gas leak in Porter ranch, and a horrific oil spill in Santa Barbara, to name just a few.

If you plan now your organization will have stronger odds for survival. This session provides compelling reasons for HR's strategic role in emergency preparedness/business continuity planning:

Learn how HR adds value through making the business case, specific leadership competencies for when disaster occurs, preparing managers for when disaster strikes, contingent HR policies, programs and communications plans, which gets you back to productivity faster.
