Frequently asked questions

What is the BCR Toolkit Program?

The Business Community Resilience (BCR) Toolkit is an innovative online solution developed to help build resilience capabilities in businesses and communities. Customers of this solution are typically councils, government, corporates or industry bodies including business chambers.

Programs are tailored to your needs with a choice of 30+ modules released over a month, a week or a year. It is a great program to get every business in a community ready for future disasters.

How does it work?

Every program is different and developed in conjunction with councils, business chambers, industry associations and other key stakeholders within participating regions or industry sectors.

Modules can be released daily, weekly, fortnightly. The program duration is flexible depending on the required outcome. Regardless of the structure of your program, our goal is always to build your resilience and preparedness in small steps. We want you to make lasting, practical changes, and have the discussions that will have long-term benefit for you, your business and your business community.

Step  1 — Tailored Program

We help you select the best structure to meet your business community’s needs. We offer  30+ modules – taking anything from a week, to a month, or a year.

Step 2 — Localised content

We co-design module content with a local steering committee to be relevant and helpful, and we film local business case studies for all modules.

Step 3 — Module Release

We release all modules as guided by your tailored plan. All participating businesses across your community complete the program together.

Step 4 — Data and Workshops

We share all data collected to help reduce local vulnerabilities across the business community, and we deliver in-person or online workshops.

What are the benefits to a business?

This program is focused on a group of businesses participating because we cannot build resilience to disasters alone. Taking part in a BCR Toolkit program will help you, your business, your customers and suppliers, and your community. We know it’s the small steps to prepare for a disaster that make the biggest difference. We also know working together in a region will make you and your community stronger.

Being involved in this program can:

  • help keep you in business
  • give you a better understanding of your business and community
  • reduce risks, including financial ones
  • help you plan for disasters
  • allow you to learn new skills and gain knowledge
  • build networks and connections
  • make small changes that will have a big impact.

If you take the time to get your business in the right position in the good times, you’ll be better prepared for the bad times.
