Excellence in Critical Event Management
In a Covid-19 and post-Covid-19 world, business resilience is no longer optional. In fact, according to Gartner, ‘Predicts 2021: Organizational Resilience’ by David Gregory, Roberta Witty, Ron Blair, and Katell Thielemann (January 4, 2021), ‘By 2025, 70% of CEOs will mandate a culture of organizational resilience to survive coinciding threats from COVID-19, cybercrime, severe weather events, civil unrest, and political instabilities.’
But achieving true organizational resilience is challenging. Your company has unique operational details-a combination of technologies, physical locations, supply chains, and, most importantly, people- all of which are constantly changing. Excellence in Critical Event Management requires a system fully configured and integrated with existing operational tools and processes, as well as users and response teams with the full set of skills required to manage different events to rise to this challenge. The Best in Enterprise Resilience™ Certification program awards recognition and validation to those companies who have met this highest industry standard.
Critical Event Management is a top board priority in 2021, helping companies:
- Enable revenue
- Lower costs
- Retain employees
- Protect reputation
- Prepare for the next disaster/pandemic
‘In the 2020s, the aftermath of the pandemic and ongoing systemic risk will force every company to become much more resilient. In fact, we believe that resilience – the ability to deliver on your mission and vision regardless of any kind of crisis or disruption, be it extreme weather, political upheaval, cyberattack, or the next disease outbreak – will become a competitive advantage for those that embrace it as a core principle.’ – Forrester , Business Resilience Is No Longer Optional, by Stephanie Balaouras – May 12, 2020
Validated Organizational Resilience and Digital Transformation Builds Trust
Being a Best in Enterprise Resilience™ organization gives employees, customers, and stakeholders confidence that your company is operating from a position of strength, agility, and resilience. The ability to withstand a critical event without a significant impact on business operations allows companies to differentiate from their peers as a trusted organization. This trust helps enhance employee retention, boost corporate reputation, and drive measurable ROI.
