Introduction to Coronavirus Business Continuity

Coronavirus Business Continuity can be used to maintain business operations and share authoritative information with customers and stakeholders during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

The rapid switch to home offices, frequently changing government regulations, and employee inability to report to work has made it difficult for organizations to understand the capacity of their workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. Organizations need to know who is able to work and where employees are working from to make business continuity decisions. Having personnel perform a daily self-check-in, or having supervisors check in their teams, gives organizations clarity into workforce capacity. Coronavirus Business Continuity is typically implemented by organizations that want a clear understanding of workforce capacity and facility status to help them adapt and ensure business continuity.

The Coronavirus Business Continuity solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you understand the operational capacity of your workforce, monitor the status of your facilities, and communicate your reopening plans to customers and employees.
