It is necessary to communicate the Business Continuity message to all staff so that they are informed about the key principles of Business Continuity. This will embed it into the business culture so that it becomes second nature and is part of the organisation’s core values and effective management.
There are various ways in which the information can be communicated:
- Training courses
- Induction training
- Scenario exercises and tests
- Articles in the organisation’s newsletter
- Visits to WARF
- Inclusion on intranet
- Agenda item on team meetings
Throughout the BCM programme and in the subsequent BCM maintenance cycle, staff at all levels should be consulted about Business Continuity and their ideas, if approved, incorporated in the BCP.
