WASHINGTON, July 22, 2015 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Human nature—the tendency to believe that a natural or man-made disaster will never occur—often undermines the clear-headed work needed to create a business continuity plan. In a recent study done by Staples, less than half of small businesses said they were prepared for severe emergencies.
Each year, lack of disaster preparedness takes a severe financial toll on small businesses. Meanwhile, with solid planning, a business owner can protect both financial and human capital, developing an organization resilient enough to withstand any kind of threat.
Learn how preparedness affects your company's bottom line at a free webinar on Wednesday, August 5, hosted by the U.S. Small Business Administration and Agility Recovery.
