Deb Ladendorf, a contributing writer for this website, recently spotted an interesting article by Jeff Casale regarding some recent findings in a study done by Mercer L.L.C. on how employers are handling the challenges of the H1N1 influenza virus to date.
Many of our readers are members of business continuity and risk management teams in their organizations, and, hopefully, in this article, those members with particular contingency planning responsibilities will find value in reading about the results of this study. The survey for the study included responses from nearly 1,000 organizations of all sizes in the United States, Latin America, Canada, Asia and Europe.
As an example, it was stated in the study that half of the respondents have local contingency plans in place, but only 25% of those respondents have integrated contingency plans in the event of an outbreak.
