The printed manuals
The Royal Mail Group incident response procedures have existed in the printed form for many years. Depending on your role within the organisation you may know these procedures as Be Aware, Stay Calm, Be Prepared, Take Action or Take Control.
Following an overhaul of these procedures in 2009, Royal Mail Group was awarded the ‘Crisis Strategy of the Year’ at the CIR Business Continuity Awards.
Printed handbooks and manuals made sense when the majority of our people are on their feet all day, working on and off site without access to internet. However more often than not, when an incident occurred, the printed guidance sat on the shelf and our people were left to work things out on their own.
With the advent of portable digital devices and wide spread internet access, it was time to put this information somewhere where people might actually be able to use it in when they need it.
The online format also allows easier implementation and instant distribution of changes to these procedures. Meaning that users can be assured access to the most accurate and up-to-date procedures at any given time.
