All of these things blindsided businesses. However business leaders have learned a lot over the last two years.

What does being pandemic prepared look like?

Knowing what we know now, it’s safe to say that some if not all of the following should be considered in a robust business continuity plan:

  • Sufficient Business Interruption Insurance (BII) that includes some kind of pandemic or health event cover.

  • Holding stocks of personal protective equipment (PPE) and sanitizer.
  • Having robust contact tracing training and technology in place to stop the spread of a virus.
