Business Continuity and the HR Professional: Are You Ready for Disruption

“Mary Nelson, SHRM-CP, PHR, CBCP will provide an overview of business continuity program (BCP) planning  (or “continuity of operations”) with a spotlight on the roles human resources professionals can take to make their operations successful during a disruption.

Mary is the Business Continuity Manager at SLAC National  Accelerator Laboratory a DOE Facility run by Stanford University. As you know, in the Bay Area we are subject to many natural hazards (e.g., earthquakes, wildfires, landslides, etc.) as well as manmade hazards (active threat, social unrest, workplace violence, etc.). We have the added challenge of PG&E’s public safety power shutoffs and we are all well aware that 100-year events such as the current pandemic can also disrupt and even shut down our operations and sometimes a business itself.

Creating and maintaining a robust BCP  program can assist you by having the steps of recovery in place ahead of an incident. Not only does it provide for an orderly transition to essential operations, BCPs also allow for greater efficiency in implementing alternative processes, temporary staffing arrangements, decision-making, and resumption of normal operations in a safe, timely manner.
