The Prince’s Business Emergency Resilience Group

December 7th 2018

The Prince’s Business Emergency Resilience Group has launched a campaign to encourage small and medium-sized businesses to protect themselves against emergencies such as flooding, fire and cyber-attacks.

The ‘Would You Be Ready?’ campaign is aimed at the 43 per cent of SMEs that don’t have business continuity, disaster recovery or crisis management plans.

The campaign includes an online test that businesses can use to find out how ready they are to cope with emergencies. It presents a range of hypothetical scenarios and gives guidance as to what would be the appropriate response. You can then download a PDF giving tips on how to prepare for such events, and sign up for more information from The Prince’s Responsible Business Network.

Joey Tabone, Resilience Director at The Prince’s Business Emergency Resilience Group, said: “SMEs are the backbone of the UK economy, and the impact that an issue or crisis could have on a small business is significant, with potentially life-changing consequences for owners and employees, as well as a negative effect on
the economy.

“We are urging small business owners across the UK to take the test and use Business in the Community’s free advice to scrutinise their own business practices to ensure they’re protected against future incidents that could put their business, and their livelihoods, in jeopardy.”

Harborough Innovation Centre is owned and supported by Harborough District Council (HDC). As the building owner HDC also funds the Centre’s business support provision, providing the basis for expert business advice, mentoring and workshops.
