Preparing for a Plan-demic
Webinar 1: July 12, 2023

What would you do if you went to work and your workplace was closed due to an emergency? Would that disrupt your plans to process payroll? You bet it would! Knowing what to do when a major disruption in your work routine happens can be addressed in a business continuity plan. Different than a disaster recovery plan, a business continuity plan is a pre-thought-out list of actions to take if anything short of a disaster keeps you from doing your job, and it can be customized to work specifically for you.
