ABSTRACT
The article discusses how firms can prepare to keep their businesses operating in the event of an emergency. Following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks in New York City alternate workplace vendors and temporary staffing firms were in high demand. But firms must plan ahead. Donald Schmidt of Marsh Inc. says companies need to have in place a senior-level crisis management team. Heidi Rybak of Arc Partners asserts that firms should identify mission-critical persons and business units beforehand, and develop contingency plans.
