Non-Desk Matters: Is your company ready for a crisis?

Non-Desk Matters is Red e App’s monthly email carefully curated to showcase news, developments, and insights within the world of employee communications, HR, and more.

Our May edition has a focus on Crisis Communications and how to be prepared when disaster strikes your company.

 


 

Prepare for the worst but hope for the best. No one wants to live life — or run their business — with that thought constantly in their head. Yet, when the worst happens … will you be prepared?

Crisis is inevitable, and it almost always occurs unexpectedly. News cycles and social media move far too quickly for a figure-it-out-as-you-go crisis management plan, so having a strategy and the right tools in place now are crucial for organizational health. 

Most importantly, you need to prepare and equip your non-desk employees with crisis procedures and real-time updates. These employees are on the front lines of your business, and the role they play is critical.
