It’s Not My Fault!
On Sunday night, a fire swept through a Japanese restaurant in Leicester. Stretches of Granby Street and Charles Street had to be blocked off and there was disruption to neighbouring businesses, many of which were unable to open on Monday (full story from Leicester Mercury and BBC).
The interesting bit here for me is that many businesses were unable to open for the day. It wasn’t their fault, but their business has suffered. For some, it will have cost a lot of money and may even have damaged their reputation.
Many businesses have a business continuity plan in place. They could survive the loss of their IT systems, their building or even some of their staff.
But what about a temporary closure? Your office is fine, your IT equipment is safe, your phones still work – but you can’t access any of them. What will you do? How much will it hurt your business?
Yes, it’s not your fault, but you still need to do something about it.
