News Report: Chamber Confederation targets continuity planning for businesses

From EyeWitness News May 5th 2020

NASSAU, BAHAMAS — While stressing the need for businesses to have continuity plans, Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and Employers Confederation (BCCEC) chief executive Jeffrey Beckles noted that a sustained event like COVID-19 was a ‘completely different story’.

In an interview with Eyewitness News, Beckles said: “Every business should have a business continuity plan regardless of what the circumstances are. When we are preparing for hurricanes we prepare for a single event. When you have a COVID-19 kind of event that is a sustained event, not just over a few days that’s a different story.  The event is still ongoing. I don’t know if there are any continuity plans that call for that kind of sustained impact. The fact that we had Dorian eight months ago and now this certainly speaks to the need for business continuity planning but unlike Dorian which was a single event that occurs and is gone this one isn’t.”
