Many forward-thinking organisations are investing in business continuity training, elearning courses and learning resources as part of their Crisis Planning & Management and Disaster Recovery strategies.
These issues have come under greater scrutiny in the midst of the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, with many companies around the globe finding themselves ill-equipped to deal with new issues such as social distancing within office or retail environments, and managing teams of remote, home-based workers.
Here we look at some of the top business continuity training providers, elearning courses and learning resources for helping companies and organisations across all sectors to keep supporting their staff and their clients through unforeseen circumstances.
