Business Continuity Awareness Week

Author: Kitt Chabba, Online Marketing Officer, BA Hons, MSc

Business Continuity Awareness Week is happening all this week and here's how you can get involved to raise awareness.

This year, the campaign is taking place between 17th-21st May 2021.

Business continuity works best when employees are engaged and aware of their organisation’s plans in case of a crisis; when they know how to behave to mitigate risks and threats; and when they know how to react to certain situations. Business continuity starts with each member of staff, from top to bottom.

Therefore, this year’s BCAW theme is ‘Business continuity starts with you’.

To celebrate, the BCI has lots of resources on how your company can get involved and become more aware! Follow the links to get more information:
