Here at Cartus, we are keeping a close eye on developments of Hurricane Irene. Cartus staff and the Cartus Crisis Management Team are paying careful attention to the path of the hurricane along the east coast of the U.S. and are working with clients, relocating employees, and our network of providers to assess the situation with special attention to possible safety concerns, both for our employees and for our clients’ relocating colleagues and their families.
Safety is of paramount importance and with this in mind, we will continue to adjust our service delivery as appropriate to make sure that no unnecessary risks are taken.
The Cartus Crisis Management Team has already activated our Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery protocols so we are prepared to implement them immediately, if necessary. In the event that the hurricane impacts the Danbury area with power outages and/or flooding, Business Continuity allows employees in our Danbury office to operate from their homes or ensures that Cartus employees in locations not impacted by the hurricane (such as Irving, Texas or one of our other U.S. offices) provide support as needed. Our Disaster Recovery plans make alternate resources available to replace temporary telephone, computer, and other business functions until normal operations can resume. (more…)
