Supporting Employees During Times of Extreme Circumstance

Released: March 2018

From hurricanes in the Gulf Coast to active shooter incidents, and wildfires in the west, the United States had its share of extreme circumstances in 2017. This report serves to provide insights into how public and private sector organizations are supporting their employees during times of extreme circumstance. The anonymous responses from participants, included in each section, hopefully inspire ideas within your own organization. The survey was designed to capture free-form responses from a variety of organizations in the public and private sectors. This allowed participants to elaborate on the formal and informal methods their organizations have in place to support employees.

This report was a joint effort between the California Resiliency Alliance, BRMA, and the California Chapters of the Association of Continuity Professionals.
