Guidelines for Developing an Effective Crisis Management Plan 

When a crisis or disaster strikes, it has the potential to disrupt even the most diligent relocation plans. Unexpected circumstances are always a challenge and a thorough, well-planned response is critical to success in providing timely, effective support to mobile employees – while concurrently managing the needs and expectations of internal stakeholders. Though wider employee groups are often affected by unexpected events, mobile employees may have unique needs during a natural disaster, heated geo-political conflicts, or pandemics such as the outbreak of COVID-19. The following is intended to provide guidelines for mobility management; the information will help mobility leaders and teams support efforts to minimise the impact of a crisis on organisations and employees and assist planning the mobilisation of employees, when appropriate.
