During a hurricane, organizations must have a way to contact their employees to ensure their physical safety and offer disaster relief.

In 2018, Coca-Cola Bottling Company UNITED, Inc faced an enormous challenge when Hurricane Michael devastated the cell phone infrastructure in Panama City.

In the final episode of our three-part series on hurricane preparedness, we interviewed Gianetta Jones, Vice President & Chief People Officer at Coca-Cola Bottling, to learn how the company overcame this destructive event and why communication was key to doing so.

What we talked about:

  • How to contact and care for your people before, during, and after a hurricane
  • Strategies to help disaster communications run smoothly
  • How to respond when power and telephone infrastructures are unavailable
  • Why there’s no such thing as over-preparing for a hurricane

The Employee Safety Podcast is hosted by Peter Steinfeld, SVP of Safety Solutions at AlertMedia.
