1 forbes 2010 continuity insights

606

Published on

When does your health stop being a personal matter and become part of your company’s business continuity plan?

How does a company decide that influenza is a legitimate business concern, but other, more pervasive, debilitating diseases and maladies are not? About 14,000 Americans died of AIDS in 2009, while 3,700 Americans died of H1N1 influenza. Companies distributed masks and gloves to employees for influenza; why not condoms for HIV? The business impact of diet, diabetes and hypertension in the workforce is already far greater than the business impact of influenza, and is likely to be greater in the future, too. This presentation explores – controversially – the risk and likelihood of emerging diseases, often from Asia, and why it should be a legitimate business continuity strategy to tell employees to eat less, drink more water and to take the stairs instead of the elevator.
