All business owners and managers need to attend this very important October Business Development University. Dick Walter, Association of Washington Business' Vice President of Operations, will give a presentation on Emergency Preparedness and the importance of developing a Pandemic Flu Plan for your business.
Dick Walter serves on the board of the WA Military Department Emergency Management Division. Learn what measures you can take to protect workers and ensure that business operations can continue should an outbreak occur.
Identify essential business functions and critical supply chains (e.g., raw materials, suppliers, sub-contractor services/products and logistics) that are needed to keep your business running. Learn how to plan how your business will operate if a high number of employees must stay home or supply chains are interrupted.
Attendees will also learn how to create policies for flexible sick leave, worksites (e.g. telecommuting), and work hours (e.g. staggered shifts) to promote social distancing if flu conditions become more severe.
