What’s Your Crisis Management Plan?
Political and social upheaval is forcing many teams into crisis mode—which means organizations need to establish a clear crisis management process in order to keep employees safe and maintain business continuity.
Organizations with experienced crisis management teams have already started adding capacity and adapting to a remote-first working model. But those who didn’t have those teams before the pandemic are grappling with how to rapidly train employees for this role and find the right tools to manage response and communication when a crisis hits.
PagerDuty’s real-time operations platform, which helps organizations prioritize and manage urgent work, can help—not only by driving action across the business, but also by keeping business stakeholders informed about scenarios that could impact a company’s reputation or core business.
PagerDuty Is Here for You in Critical Moments
