Creating and maintaining a business continuity plan helps ensure that your business has the resources and information needed to deal with an emergency or interruption in operations. It is recommended that businesses of all sizes update or develop a new business continuity plan to prepare their operations and employees for any kind of interruptions to operations, including the recent COVID-19 pandemic. A well-designed plan will help you as a tourism business owner minimize the level of risk that an emergency poses to your employees, suppliers, guests and the continuity of your business operations and bottom line. Business continuity planning should include measures to ensure your business is prepared for current and future market conditions and able to effectively adapt.
