Presenter, Roger Smith, CPP and Payroll Consultant, Stresses the Importance of having a Business Continuity Plan
Livonia, Mich., September 17, 2008 – WorkForce Software, Inc., a leader in workforce management software solutions, announces its latest on-demand Learning Series webinar targeted for professionals responsible for managing their workforce. The September Learning Series webinar is “Business Continuity: Are You Prepared?”
Organizations know it is important to have a business continuity plan, but a majority do not. If disaster were to strike, many organizations would find it difficult to continue operations and many would have to close their doors. Our speaker, Mr. Roger Smith, CPP and consultant for the PayrollProf, states in the webinar that 50-percent of business in the World Trade Center never reopened for business after 9/11 because they didn’t have a plan in place.
This webinar will discuss how to create and test a plan. Mr. Smith has an extensive background in the payroll industry and he is a frequent speaker and contributor for the American Payroll Association (APA). During his career he has gained a solid understanding of how to keep operations productive during a business interruption. He also provides valuable tips on how to sell your plan to executives. Although it is expensive to prepare and execute a business continuity plan, it is well worth the cost so it is important to gain executive approval.
“When you’re responsible for managing the entire workforce, it is your responsibibility to make sure operations continue during a minor or major business disruption,” said President and CEO Kevin Choksi of WorkForce Software. “Typically this role falls within the HR and administration department, so we are excited to offer this valuable webinar on business continuity.”
