Managing Risk in Business

This latest recession snuck up on many business owners a bit like a silent assassin, caught many of us by surprise and sadly many businesses haven’t survived.

But with strong focus on reducing costs, increasing revenue and maximising profit margins many businesses owners managed to react promptly and introduce revised business plans that have helped them to survive leaving them in a great position as the shoots of recovery begin to appear.

Having demonstrated tenacity and putting in all that hard work to keep going, wouldn’t it be a complete tragedy if all of your efforts were wiped out in an instant simply because you failed to plan and prepare for other significant business risks.

So what are the big risks facing business owners?

Financial ~ Recession, Unhelpful Banks, Aged Debtors…..need I say more?

Legal ~ Sometimes avoiding disputes simply isn’t possible but when they become expensive and complicated this can have a huge impact on your business. What if someone doesn’t pay you? What if you have a disagreement with a supplier or a Client? How to do you protect your business?

Regulatory ~ Government regulation changes often enough as it is but with a general election looming what other changes are likely to head our way? UK Employment Laws already change at least twice a year but what about your obligations under the Data Protection Act or the Provision of Services Regulations?

Operational ~ To successfully deliver your company’s products and/or services to your Customers most business rely on other business to provide them with products and services. What would happen if your servers crashed? What would you do if your communications (Internet, phones, email) went down? Ever had to evacuate your offices because of a fire alarm…..what would happen if you could get back in that day, that week or that month?

Even when things are going well and cash flow is high many business owners find preparing for risks a challenge but when times are tough preparing for risk often falls of the radar completely but what effect could this have?
