Business Continuity Challenges During Coronavirus Outbreak

The COVID-19 crisis has changed the lives of people in unprecedented ways. With travel bans, lockdowns, and imposed quarantines, this human tragedy is having an impact on the global economy. It is certainly not business as normal. This coronavirus pandemic is genuinely an alarming call for companies and leaders to review the strategies, policies, and processes to safeguard employees, customers, and operations during the crisis and at the same time maintain business continuity.

Companies are actively reviewing their efforts to gauge the right levels of support for their people. But the impact is not limited to the COVID-19 crisis. It is about reimagining business and collaboration models. Leaders need to think about companies, customers, team and community. They can begin by initiating and executing a plan to support employees consistent with the guidelines and have a roadmap for policy changes.

And even after the coronavirus pandemic slows down, there will be opportunities and needs to reimagine business and operating models and also the portfolio of offerings. Some new patterns which have emerged during the crisis are likely to become new norms are the need to hire remote staff and to work from home.
