Building business resilience is a multifaceted process that starts with people

Business resilience is often equated with digital reinforcement. Too many companies update their technology and call it a done deal.

But business resilience is multifaceted and constantly evolving, and it starts with your people – your employees, your partners, and your customers.

“When people are empowered to use their imagination, creativity, and tenacity, they can deliver incredible client service in unusual circumstances.”
– Jim Powers, Co-chairman, Crowe Global

4 steps to create short- and long-term business resilience

Focus on your people

People are your foundation for business resilience. Trust and empower your people to do their jobs. Communicate clearly and give them the tools they need. They’ll find solutions that help you thrive today and tomorrow.

Support your partners

Your business might be equipped for change, but are your partners? Monitor critical partners’ access to data, cybersecurity, and financial health to minimize risk and increase effectiveness.

Safeguard your technology

Technology can protect you, or it can expose you to risk. Find and implement solutions that can safeguard your business through turbulent times – for example, by monitoring and alerting you to real-time supply chain issues.

Plan for sustainability

Organizations need to make significant and ongoing investments in sustainability. A flexible workforce, succession planning, and disaster recovery efforts can all help reinforce business resiliency.
