If 45 percent of your employees couldn’t work tomorrow, what would you do? How long could you conduct business as usual?

Unlike the disasters that most organizations plan for, a disease outbreak will not affect equipment and facilities, but rather the people that organizations depend upon to produce products and services. The current assumptions about illnesses’ duration push the boundaries of most existing absence-from-work policies. The strain on every aspect of daily life – from the delivery of goods and services to the support of the national infrastructure – will be tested. Crisis Coach Register

Organizations must thoroughly examine and refine their practices and policies that address the long timeline of an illness event.

Please join us as Firestorm Principal and Licensed Pharmacist, Ken Mercer, explores the risks associated with employee absences and communicable illnesses.
