The report suggested that companies should give practical help that is most aligned to their capabilities and must think creatively about new ways to leverage their capabilities. It also said that in dealing with potential threats or disasters to your company, it is critical for organisations to rise above self-interest and link their crisis response to their purpose.

“It’s no longer solely about ensuring that operations and core business functions are not severely impacted by an unplanned incident, rather it’s taking emergency actions to benefit the wider community,” it said. (IANS)
