How to address employee relocation in a DR plan

Find out what your DR plans must identify if your organization is faced with employee relocation in this Expert Response from Paul Kirvan.

Should a DR plan address employee relocation?

A good DR plan factors in human elements so that accidents and other threats to employees are minimized. If your organization is faced with employee relocation, at a minimum, disaster recovery plans should identify primary and alternate assembly areas outside the building. This will ensure that all staff can meet and head counts can be taken. If the disaster forces people out of the building for an extended time, e.g., more than one day, the DR plan will specify where employees can be safely relocated, such as another company office or to designated office space that has been pre-arranged for emergency use.
