Backup support for any time, not just vacations

by cpr In reply to Consider cross-training t ...

You need to ensure you have a backup plan for each key employee. Whether it is to get an outside consultant until you have hired an adequate replacement, etc. Regardless of the time period, you need to ensure you can provide quality support during the whole year. What happens if a key employee leaves - you only have a plan for summer vacation?
You must make sure that you have access to replacement resources all the time.
