Do you have an emergency plan, a scenario for dealing with a crisis? Many companies underestimate the importance of crisis containment. Managers believe that the worst would never happen, hence they’re unprepared when disaster strikes.
Planning for a crisis and having the resources needed to manage the situation could save the business in the long run. Even if managers have the best of intentions, crisis containment can be difficult or nearly impossible. Such events are unpredictable, and the scope cannot be assessed clearly in advance. Being prepared for all possible crises and the situations that may arise from them is obviously implausible.
A corporate crisis can result from so many things – customer complaints, product defects and recalls, poor sales, miscommunication, internal fraud, poor product performance and many others. Regardless of the cause, a large-scale company crisis can be detrimental. It will affect bottom line profit, the reputation of the business, employee morale, customer loyalty and most other factors that will be determining for the survival of the company.
Acting fast and understanding the scope of the crisis are vital. The management team will be under the spotlight from the very first minute, which will result in additional stress and complications. Internal and external communication will be dissected, and the welfare of the business will be put to the test.
