Western Union

Western Union is a global leader in money transfer services.

Denver, CO -- As a global company, Western Union has employees located all over the world. While most employees work in relatively secure facilities, we all have seen first hand how events can create an unsafe environment very quickly. Following the events of 9/11/2001, the tsunami in 2004 and Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, it makes sense to prepare for the worst. Businesses must plan to ensure the safety of employees and for the continuation of their operations, and individuals must plan to help ensure the safety of their families. Western Union already has sound business continuity plans in place to ensure that business operations can recover from emergencies. However, will help individual employees prepare a customized individual contingency plan to ensure their families are safe as well.

Responsible businesses protect not only
their tangible assets, but their human
resources as well.
