Sometimes when employees leave they do bad things. Some like trash talking your company on Glassdoor. Some like trash talking your company on Facebook. But for some reason the most common form of F.U. is deleting email. I’m not sure whether people do it out of spite, or out of trying to hide something. It’s hard to say.
One would think that living right here in hurricane-land more businesses would be prepared.
But the reality is that most businesses just don't care.
Or maybe they do and they just they don’t know what to do.
Or maybe, just maybe, their IT person didn't do a good job of explaining what's needed.
Whatever the reason most small businesses still don't have a disaster plan and that’s not a good thing.
Empowered with a little information your business could improve its disaster readiness pretty easily.
And… It really doesn't cost that much to make your business more reliable and resilient to disasters.
Heck, you’ll even improve your ability to be mobile at the same time.
Putting your email in the cloud - makes you more reliable.
Putting your phone system in the cloud - makes you more reliable.
Putting your files and data in the cloud - makes you more reliable.
Putting your accounting system in the cloud - makes you more reliable.
Providing all of your employees laptops make you more reliable and portable.
There's all kinds of things you can do to make your business reliable.
Just a few small changes to how you run your tech today can make a big difference when a natural disaster strikes.
At the end of the day when disaster happens people just want to make sure that their home and family are safe.
Business is an afterthought.
But it doesn't have to be.
A little planning, a few tech decisions, and embracing the cloud can drastically improve your outlook.
So there you have it.
Be safe out there.
