ACCJ Activates Business Continuity Network
As a service to members, ACCJ has activated its Business Continuity Network to facilitate sharing of knowledge and best practices among member companies during this period of health and business challenges.
ACCJ is hosting regular tele-conferences among HR and Business Continuity specialists at member organizations, and is sharing call summaries and periodic COVID-19 survey results with members. The ACCJ Business Continuity Network will evolve as needed based on member input as the current situation continues to develop.
