Walking The Talk: Business Resilience Planning at Facility Engineering Associates

by Maureen Roskoski, CFM, SFP, LEED AP O+M,
Senior Professional, Corporate Sustainability Officer
Facility Engineering Associates

Business Resilience is the ability to rapidly adapt and respond to business disruptions while maintaining continuous business operations. Business resilience planning provides guidance for ensuring the ability to respond, resume, and restore to a pre-determined level of operation following a disruption. At FEA, we help our clients strive for resilience through comprehensive planning that takes a holistic and long-term view of the threats and their individual enterprise in order to ensure that the business is prepared to avoid, mitigate, and recover from adverse events. But, what were we doing ourselves? Were we walking the talk?

Facility Engineering AssociatesThe mission of FEA is to provide facility managers and owners with progressive and innovative solutions to engineering and facility lifecycle challenges. Thus, it is critical that FEA maintain a robust business resilience program to ensure the stability of operations and services for our partners, our community, and our clients around the world. To make sure that we had an effective program, we decided to pursue certification under the ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems standard. Our journey started in 2015 with a commitment from the FEA Board of Directors to allocate time and resources to our ISO certification. Our certification planning process was comprised of the five steps shown in Figure 1.

FEA ISO Certification Steps

Figure 1: FEA ISO Certification Steps

Like many organizations, FEA had some documentation related to what to do in the event of an emergency. We had evacuation procedures and were confident we could get everyone out of the building if needed. But what happens as everyone is standing in the parking lot and we are told we can’t get back in to the building for a significant period of time? We needed a plan. We used the ISO standard to build it. It provides a good framework for developing not only a business continuity plan, but a full management system, framed around the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle (See Figure 2).

ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Framework

Figure 2: ISO 22301 Business Continuity Management Framework

Through the ISO certification planning process, we expanded our organizational resilience in clear and tangible ways by creating, implementing, and training on business continuity and emergency response procedures. Effective business resilience planning includes critical elements that became evident to us as we went through the ISO certification process including:

  1. Management engagement: Engagement with leadership is crucial to generate enthusiasm and gain support for allocation of employee time.
  2. Accountability: Clear roles and responsibilities, reporting requirements, and follow-through allow for decisions to be made and roles of authority to be addressed.
  3. Business Impact Analysis (BIA): This effort allows you to truly identify the critical processes that are needed to continue to function and how soon you need them up and running.
  4. Balance detail with ease of use: Plans and procedures need to be detailed but also need to be user-friendly and easy to implement.
  5. Employee engagement: Everyone plays a role in business resilience so everyone needs to be aware and engaged in the process.

Other tangible outputs of our planning process were the employee handbooks that we created. First, our “Safety 1st” handbook outlined specific procedures to follow in many different emergency situations. Second, our “Readiness Handbook” was a user-friendly short guide that combined the most important points of the emergency preparedness procedures and our business continuity procedures. These handbooks were great engagement tools, provided procedures to exercise, and continually serve as reminders to employees of what their responsibility is during a particular event.

FEA ISO certification

FEA pursued the certification to strengthen our organizational resilience and to enhance our ability to continue our business during a disruptive event. We achieved ISO certification under the 22301 Business Continuity Management Systems standard for FEA’s Fairfax Office in January of 2016. The certification is a great achievement, but the journey to certification, although challenging, was by far the greatest benefit. We invigorated a core team of business continuity professionals, engaged with our employees companywide, and created a culture of organizational resilience. Everyone at FEA, in all of the offices, is part of Business Resilience. With our ISO 22301 certification, FEA has put into practice the system we advise our clients to implement to help ensure strong operational resilience, corporate governance, and crisis management planning.

Resilient Cities, A Grosvenor Research Report

Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 1.31.00 PMA 2014 research report developed by Grosvenor quantified the resilience of the world’s most important 50 cities based on two criteria: vulnerability and adaptive capability. The Resilient Cities Report collected independent data and created a scale on which to place each of the 50 cities. The results  Canadian cities in the top three, with U.S. cities following. A notable conclusion can also be made from the highest forecast population growth occurring in the least resilient cities from the list.

This plan details how the Colorado Resiliency Working Group will achieve the goals laid out in the framework, mainly via resiliency-focused projects in the community, economic, health and social, housing, infrastructure, watershed and natural resources sectors.

Reflections on the First Resilient Virginia Conference, March 22-23, 2016

Jerry Walker Headshot 2016By Jerry Walker, CEM, LEED AP, Chairman of the Board, Resilient Virginia and Henrico County Energy Manager

Resilient Virginia burst onto the radar screens of leaders from federal, state and local governments, and concerned citizens with their 2016 Resilient Virginia Conference in Richmond, on May 22nd and 23rd.  The two day conference at the Greater Richmond Convention center attracted over 220 attendees, speakers and exhibitors. With a theme of activating communities and businesses for a more resilient future, three major geographic regions were addressed; coastal, rural, and urban.  Issues such as weather, coastal flooding, urban-underdevelopment, agricultural demands on dwindling farm space, and man-made threats to our well-being were all addressed.

By way of plenary and break-out sessions over the two day period, Resilient Virginia positioned itself as the go-to source of information and education for matters related to resiliency in the Commonwealth.  By all measures this conference was timely, informative and enthusiastically received by all attendees and participants.  As the importance of resiliency remains an issue in Virginia, Resilient Virginia will be there to assist in preparing our residents, businesses, and governmental leaders to recover rapidly form any stress related event we may experience.

Resilient Virginia’s roots run deep.  Evolving from the Virginia Sustainable Building Network, an organization that helped develop better building standards and education throughout Virginia over an 18 year period, Resilient Virginia brings a team of committed professionals to the forefront of this new and topical threat to our long term survivability in light of man-made and natural stresses.

To address each major topic in each region, Resilient Virginia’s host of speakers included The Honorable Brian J. Moran, Secretary of Public Safety and Homeland Security, Dr. Alan Hecht, the Director for Sustainable Development at the Office of Research and Development, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Donald Lumpkins, the Director of the National Integration Center for the Federal Emergency Management Agency, Ms. Harriet Tregoning, Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary in the Office of Community Planning and Development for the US Department of Housing and Urban Development, and a host of speakers from the Commonwealth, state universities, local government and Planning Districts.

With such a cast of speakers addressing resiliency topics, we received comments such as:  “superlative speakers”, “really diverse audience that provided an opportunity to network with government and business contacts”, “never have seen a conference like this in Virginia – great work”, and “a brilliant first conference”.

No resilience topic was left un-discussed.  Attendees were made aware of activities throughout Virginia and the nation that are focused on making our communities and businesses more capable of rapid recovery from the many potential stresses facing us in the days ahead.  The key to the conference was that the revelation that there are solutions, from all levels of government and from the host of the conference, Resilient Virginia.

See you at the next Resilient Virginia Conference!

NOTE: Jerry Walker will be retiring from his Henrico County Energy Manager job this coming May, and we will have to let him go as the Chairman of Resilient Virginia.  On behalf of myself and the Resilient Virginia Board of Directors, we heartily thank Jerry for his outstanding support of the mission and activities of our organization.  

Thanks to our Sponsors, Exhibitors, Partners, and Planning Committee for their support in making the first Resilient Virginia Conference a great success!
