Investing in Your Company’s Physical Risk Resilience


Extreme weather events, infrastructure and technology failures, and transportation accidents are on the rise globally. These physical threats often have cascading effects that reach all areas of a business. Organizational resilience, or the ability to anticipate, absorb, and recover from hazardous events, is now table stakes. When the C-suite prioritizes resilience, they set the business up for recovery in the face of these physical threats, saving time, resources, and revenue and making the organization more competitive. But the C-suite has historically prioritized the risks that have a direct financial impact on the bottom line, favoring investments with tangible financial returns. A simple ROI calculation won’t cut it for physical risk prevention and mitigation investments because they can’t be measured by increases in revenue. A financially sound business strategy requires a focus on return on resilience investment (RORI), which shows in monetary terms what damage was avoided, not what income was gained.
