partners in preparedness

Each month, we feature a partner who has done outstanding work to prepare their organization, staff, services, and facilities for emergencies.

Featured Partner of the Month: APG Asset Management US Inc. (APG US)
APG Asset Management US Inc. (APG US) is a registered investment adviser to Dutch-based APG. APG services industrywide Dutch pension funds, investing and safeguarding the pensions of 1-in-5 families in the Netherlands. An important part of APG US' responsibility to its clients is to plan and prepare for business disruptions.

Along with annual review and testing of the continuity plan, APG US builds a business continuity minded culture through ongoing awareness campaigns that engage and involve employees with a mix of information and fun.

This year, APG US held an internal Business Continuity Expo featuring representatives from NYC Emergency Management. The expo built on themes APG US had been communicating throughout the year, with an activity zone for each theme:
  • ZONE 1: Business preparedness included online information security quizzes and a business continuity temperament test, along with brochures from the NYC Emergency Management.
  • ZONE 2: Hurricane preparedness had a computer set up so employees could look up their personal hurricane evacuation zone and talk with NYC Emergency Management staff members who introduced them to other resources for hurricane preparedness. Each employee also picked up a company Go Bag customized to their role in the organization.
  • ZONE 3: Home preparedness gave APG US staff an opportunity to speak to more NYC Emergency Management staff members about personal/family emergency planning. NYC Emergency Management provided booklets for the staff to take home to their kids, as well as information about emergency plans for pets.
  • ZONE 4: Pandemic included an interactive display on social distancing showing how far away to stand if someone is sick (six feet). The event also coincided with the company's annual, on-site flu shot clinic, where employees learned more about how to protect their health.
