People Aspects of Business Continuity Management Training Course

Business continuity planning forms an essential part of an organization's tools for maintaining continuity of critical products and services. The focus of this course is to look at the ‘people’ elements’ of business continuity in contrast to ‘human resources’ elements.

The course explores the key concepts of people and human risk from the standpoint of human resource professionals and risk professionals. This will enable critical thinking around the themes of risk appetite and risk assessment techniques as well as recovery strategies. Business continuity strategies and solutions are introduced as prerequisites for formulating useful continuity plans and plans to recover services through to business as usual (BAU).

You will be encouraged to make links to other disciplines such as health and safety, as well as how to engage with external interested parties, such as the emergency services.

This course combines presentations as well as individual and team activities designed to establish and cement a practical understanding of the elements of the people aspects of business continuity, enabling you to construct, deploy and validate relevant people strategies and solutions, as well as plans and procedures, on returning to the workplace.
