We live in an era of high volatility, deep uncertainty, and ultra-complexity. Most companies can expect to suffer serious disruption every five years. And successful businesses know this. They take the steps to build resilience – reducing the chances of crises occurring and developing the elasticity to quickly spring back to full operation.
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought this into sharp focus. Almost every UK business is currently dealing with the impact of the coronavirus – a crisis event which has affected every element of life.
At Horizonscan we go into organisations, test their durability, and build frameworks which can stop mishaps turning into disasters. We are certified by the Business Continuity Institute, and work across a range of sectors. The techniques we use can be applied to different sizes and types of company, to protect against crises and safeguard the long-term future. Our international risk management work has won awards. We approach resilience from a practical, real world perspective. Our team of consultants have over 200 years of combined, frontline experience, with most having served in the emergency services.
What Do Our Clients Think About Horizonscan?
We tested our working from home capability with the office closed for the day last week – thankfully before schools, colleges, creches closed [as a result of COVID-19]. It’s incredible to witness this – I hope it is a once-in-a-lifetime event. I am very glad that we had your input over the past few years. It has definitely pushed us to improve remote working capability.
"Horizonscan delivered two challenging [and] interesting exercises, that the participants found ‘hugely encouraging’. Key to this was their patient, understanding, flexible approach, [which] allowed them to accommodate our requirements whilst maintaining a clear focus on the aim. "
"Horizonscan offers a unique solution for stress-testing crisis readiness, that provides a lens into areas of strength, as well as vulnerabilities that need to be [addressed]. The Horizonscan team have again and again proven to be insightful and engaged partners, who can deliver a scenario along with support to assure learning, improvement and meaningful direction. "
“Dear Horizonscan – I just wanted to thank you both for your support last night, I think you came in at the right moments and gave some great guidance! Today we got the crisis boardrooms back out and started the process of moving from crisis to business recovery. ”
"Over the last 15 years Horizonscan have provided invaluable BCM solutions to MS Amlin’s corporate client base. Over this same time period their services have been refined and enhanced to reflect the ever-changing business environment in which Organisations now find themselves. Horizonscan continue to be MS Amlin’s preferred supplier of continuity solutions and their delivery of exercising and training programmes remains second to none."
"On Saturday evening we had a 4 inch mains pipe burst and flood the site for 6 hours, unnoticed. We estimate that we had some 60,000l of warm muddy water flow through the site affecting around 50% of the footprint, including assembly. By this morning at 9am we had a fully functioning, safe, almost dry factory. No small credit to Horizonscan for the lessons you have taught us. Our processes worked well and the team’s response was outstanding. Thank you Horizonscan! "
"When we first engaged with Horizonscan…we were shocked at how unprepared we were in the event of an incident ranging from a fire to a blocked road by our premises although I could go on. The Horizonscan team helped us to understand all the incidents that could potentially affect our staff and business. We then went about putting a robust structure in place to deal with every type of crisis we could face. There specialist staff worked with our crisis team to give them all the tools needed to deal with any potential incident. We are without a doubt in a better place after working with them. It is something that we all hope we will never need, but I truly feel the time and money that was invested was well worth it. "
"We are continuing our ongoing relationship with Horizonscan this year. During the work programme, Horizonscan have assisted us with our documentation, all of which were delivered on time. Horizonscan continue to deliver a high standard of service and have been a great support in helping us develop our Business Continuity Management System."
