The London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games will be the largest sports events in the world and offer a once-in-a-lifetime chance to showcase the UK at its best. It is also a great opportunity for businesses of all sizes and sectors.
However, like any large event, the Games will bring with them certain challenges. If your business is located near to a Games venue or a travel hotspot, you need to start planning as soon as possible to reduce any adverse impact that the Games could have on your business.
This booklet provides some advice and guidance on things you can do before, during and after Games time , so that you can keep your business running during 2012 and make the most of the opportunities next summer.
This guide has been coordinated by the Cabinet Office, with contributions from all the organisations involved with delivering the Games. It will be reviewed regularly during the next year, so please check back to get the latest advice.
Your business faces and manages challenges every day. Frustrating events like late-running transport, supplier delays, computer crashes, accidents and fraud can cause nuisance or other forms of disruption. But what if something similar affects your business during Games time? The impact of such an event could prevent you from conducting business and affect your brand, image and reputation.
– What if you don’t have enough staff?
– What if your technology fails?
– What if transport is disrupted?
– What if your supply chain is affected?
– What if access to your workplace is restricted?
You will be better prepared to respond to these challenges if you have given these factors some early consideration and have business continuity plans in place.
Some businesses already have comprehensive business continuity plans and where this is the case you should ensure that you review your plans to factor in the differences you may experience during next summer, and that any contingency measures take into account the additional pressures of the Games.
