Disaster Preparedness: 5 Steps To Plan Your Recovery                 

Approved for 1.5 RCH’s by the American Payroll Association

Every payroll professional understands that payroll is emotional, critical, timely and more complex than “just writing a check.”  When a disaster happens, payroll cannot stop. Employees need the assurance and comfort of knowing that, regardless of the circumstances, they will receive a paycheck.

Many of us have processed payrolls during tornadoes, floods, hurricanes, blizzards, earthquakes, utility outages, and now, through a global pandemic.

Any interruption to a company from forces inside or outside will require a response (sometimes sudden and dramatic) in business operations. There are many pieces to a successful disaster preparedness plan. Following this 5-step process can ensure an accurate, thorough, and efficient recovery.

We will map out how to:

  1. Decide
  2. Discuss
  3. Prepare
  4. Communicate
  5. Test

We will review these 5-steps and the different components and considerations involved.
