Can any one provide BCM staffing advice?
We have written our BCM Plans to assume that no more than 70% of staff for any business unit would be available in a disaster. My question is, is that a reasonable assumption or should we assume that fewer staff would be available and what would a reasonable percentage be? Can you please let me know what assumption your financial institution makes? Thank you.
Dale, in my experience it's driven by the type of disaster. For example, a flood might make more staff unavailable than a localized fire. To be safe, I'd plan for no more than 50% of your staff being available and see where that takes you in recovery strategies/tasks and see if that's feasible.
