Organizations of all sizes are facing issues that have never before presented themselves. The fact that a policy or action taken or not taken can cause, loss of business, going concern issues and most importantly risks to the health and well being of employees and trading partners makes every move a tenuous one. In this session we outline the many factors that should be considered as policies and measures are updated or created anew. The material focuses on tools that allow for work to continue while organizations strive for social distancing. We also look at possible consequences and benefits related to different directions organizations choose. Finally, we show that the normal balance between risk mitigation and resource allocation is unachievable in a business world that faces the hardships and responsibilities of a pandemic. Those that take this session will gain insight into the value of people and public safety in relation to the worth of an organization and its assets.
