BCI Crisis Management Report 2021
The Business Continuity Institute’s new Crisis Management report focuses on the emerging crisis management trends brought to the forefront after COVID-19. The centralization of key strategic processes along with the ability to communicate these processes through layers of central, regional, and country level teams was the key to a successful crisis management structure. The report explains how a more collaborative approach to crisis and staff health & wellbeing are now considered as an integral part of a crisis response; indicating that many organizations have realized that without healthy staff - who are fully engaged and have good channels of communication - a response is much less likely to be effective.Register to download the free report >>

From Commercial Risk Online – WORTH A READ: Watershed Moment for Supply Chain Risk as Disruption Set to Worsen
Recent months have seen unprecedented supply chain disruption, impacting almost all sectors and hindering the economic recovery after the end of Covid-19 lockdowns. The pandemic and a wave of power shortages in Asia have hit production, while the post-lockdown boom has caused a surge in demand for raw materials and goods, contributing to long delays in shipping. Adding to the pressure, severe shortages of labor are affecting many industries, not least the UK transport sector where a shortage of lorry drivers as a result of Brexit has led to panic-buying of food and petrol.
Disruption is expected to continue for the foreseeable future and potentially worsen, experts agree.
“It is not over yet, not even close to it,” warned Hayley Robinson, group chief underwriting officer at Zurich Insurance. “Certain products will run out in the coming months and seasonal items might arrive too late. Production and logistics will need a while to get back to normal. Or perhaps we even need to find out first what normal is in 2022,” she said.Don't miss what the experts are saying >>
