Year Two Pandemic Preparedness Survey

Year Two Pandemic Preparedness Survey

The Deloitte Center for Health Solutions, recently conducted its second-annual survey of large US companies to assess their level of concern about and preparedness for a pandemic flu outbreak.

The survey results provide a snapshot of American businesses’ perspectives about the threat of and their preparedness for a potential pandemic.

Public health officials are warning that it is not a matter of “if” but “when” the next pandemic will strike. When it does, it will disrupt supply chains, dramatically reduce labor pools and diminish businesses’ ability to meet scheduled obligations.

About the preparedness plans, only 35 percent of respondents say they have infrastructure plans that would allow the majority of their workforce to effectively work from a remote location.

Regardless of where the pandemic hits first, its effects will ripple across the globe.
