Steelhenge Provide Olympic Planning Services to Organisations
Now is the time to start planning how you are going to cope with, and minimise, possible disruption to your business during the Olympics 2012.
Have you thought what you will do if staff want to take the time off to go to the Olympic Games? How will staff get to work if the transport network is affected? Have you found out if/how your suppliers will be affected by the games to ensure that your supplies will get to you by the correct time? How will you be affected if you are located near an Olympics venue site? Have you checked your remote working capability if staff want to work from home? All these and many more are the questions starting to face businesses across the UK near Olympics venues and particularly those in London.
Steelhenge staff have a vast experience in business continuity planning. To help you with your planning it has published its top ten tips on how to minimise disruption to your company throughout the Olympic Games. The Olympics Planning top ten tips can be found here http://www.steelhenge.co.uk/
Dominic Cockram, Managing Director of Steelhenge, remarked ‘companies really need to start thinking about how the games could affect their business’ . Too many businesses are still ignoring the issues and potentially facing some weeks of disruption over the Games as the numbers of people in and around all the Olympics venues swell to many times their normal levels and public services and utilities come under immense pressure to maintain their services. Commented Dominic, ‘companies that are near to venue sites really need to start looking at how they are going to cope with possible disruption as the transport network may be affected as could their suppliers and staff. Knowledge of the Olympics Route Network (ORN) should be high on the list of critical information for example. We are assisting some companies now with their planning to ensure that their business copes with any disruption. They are building on existing business continuity plans or may produce specific Olympic plans.’
The Steelhenge exercise services are also in growing demand for Olympics scenarios to rehearse and validate plans and planning assumptions, allowing an element of stress testing to see how organisations will cope.
Steelhenge can assist companies with their Olympic planning, business continuity planning, training and exercising. For further information on how we do this visit our website http://www.steelhenge.co.uk/
