CHICAGO, Sept. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Conflicting guidance on the depth and breadth of the H1N1 virus - the upcoming revisit of swine flu - has combined with other factors to result in dangerously low preparedness plans within the private sector. "There's no question that companies have delayed preparedness," said Joan Beaubaire, principal of The Kineo Group. "Businesses are navigating a daunting market and obstacles not immediately in their path aren't being addressed."
Buttressing this argument is the Harvard School of Public Health study released this week which found that two out of three U.S. businesses are unprepared to deal with the effects of a flu pandemic, when employee absences can be a major disruption.
The Kineo Group's Crisis Practice has created a H1N1 Readiness Check List that leverages its principals' expertise from work at the American Red Cross and other global organizations to help leaders manage their workforce effectively.
Appropriate planning empowers employees and other stakeholders to make the right decisions for themselves and their company, making the best of what will be a challenge.
