MEMBER BLOG: Are you ready for a disaster?

Paul Plouffe, CEO & President, ServiceMaster of Greater Bridgeport
You know that everyone dies and everyone pays taxes. But, did you know that almost everyone (7 out of 10 businesses) will not survive after experiencing a significant disaster? That’s 70%! As the leader of your business or organization, how can you beat those odds?
Answer: It starts with a plan. Unfortunately, like the stop sign principle where a sign was installed after the accident, most companies don't begin planning until after a disaster has happened. Any good financial advisor will tell you that it's not how much you make (Asset Generation) it's how much you keep, (Asset Preservation). Tragically, many short sighted businesses will invest years in R&D, training, and infrastructure development, only to lose everything for failing to plan for the unexpected disaster.
Fact 1: There is never a bad time to get started.
Fact 2: There is always something you can do to improve your existing program.
Here are a few things you can do immediately as you consider the subject.

What does responsive mean?
Nothing beats sitting down at your trusty desktop PC and browsing the internet, right? Well, that question may have been more appropriate back in 2013.
The fact of the matter is mobile use isn’t just creeping up on desktop PCs, it is leaving them in the dust.
We are now officially past the mobile “tipping point” according to a report from TechCrunch.
MEMBER BLOG : A Passion for Safety Every Day

A Passion for Safety Every Day
June is National Safety Month where we focus on reducing the leading causes of injury at work, on the road and in our homes and communities. According to the National Safety Council, nearly 11 American workers die each day on the job. I find these statistics appalling and unacceptable.
Even one serious injury on the job is one too many. When you consider the pain and suffering that a co-worker may experience and the impact on families, friends and the workplace, the more we look out for one another, the better off we will be.
At PSEG Fossil, we have a passion for safety and it shows.
