Take Control of Inclement Weather with a Plan

How prepared are your employees and organization to navigate the next major blizzard?

If you don’t know how you will keep employees informed and safe while you maintain business continuity, you can do more.

Imagine your employees waking up in the morning after a snowstorm has hit. The Weather Channel details the icy roads and slippery streets. Social media is crowded with photos and updates of vehicles buried in the snow and children celebrating the snow day. But what about work? Your employees must decide if they should brave the hazardous roads or stay home and potentially miss a workday. With no incoming messages and calls that lead only to voicemail, your employees become confused and frustrated.

Keep in mind that if your employees don’t know what to do in the event of a snow or ice storm, they can put themselves at risk. They may attempt to report to work but find the office closed. Alternatively, they could get into an accident on the way. Please don’t put them, or yourself, in that position.
