Business Continuity Planning For Avian Flu.

Wed Apr 19, 2006 8:46 pm

Here at work I've recently been involved in the madness that constitutes our BCP should a bird-flu pandemic occur.

Our esteemed Institute Director, who was one of the main instigators of this foolishness and was on the head-office committee who came up with this nonsense suggested that we should consider our strategy with regards to a situation whereby 1/3 of the institute staff were killed as a result of bird-flu.

My smart-arse comment that in this situation we should possibly consider employing replacement staff as a short-term measure, sadly did not go down well with the top-brass.  Smile

Is anyone else's employer taking this threat so seriously?  Silly

That sounds a bit drastic, but any responsible management will make such contingency plans if faced with a realistic threat to the business. They have a responsibility to the shareholders to protect the business.
