Are you a small business? Do you know what it takes to re-open your doors to your community after a disaster while minimizing losses to your bottom line and employees?
Created to specifically help small and medium-sized businesses, Atlas will become a knowledgeable member of your team and guide you on a unique journey toward business resilience. Working through levels and modules, you will learn to improve your preparedness by completing tasks and testing on your operational readiness, networks and relationships, leadership and culture, change readiness, and your ability to assist your people at work. Based on your progress and inputs, Atlas will skillfully auto-generate a shareable Crisis and Recovery Plan, which can be used to exercise your readiness for disasters, as well as educate your staff.
Atlas: Ready for Business has been developed by the Global Disaster Preparedness Center, a partnership between the International Federation of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Socities and the American Red Cross. Working closely with Resilient Organisations, this app was created as a tool to help small and medium-sized businesses prepare for disasters.
