The Challenge
In today’s globalized world, businesses face a vast array of threats to their operations. The COVID-19 pandemic has underlined, as never before, that businesses need to be prepared to face unexpected events.  In short, they need to be resilient and sustainable.

The Programme
Sustainable and Resilient Enterprise (SURE) training consists of six core modules teaching business leaders nine resilience practices that are customized for their needs. Developed through a partnership by the ILO and GIZ, and with the support of a global advisory group, these modules are taught through a blended combination of webinars, self-guided eLearning, and individual coaching by local trainer experts.

What’s in it for you?
By the end of SURE training, you will walk away with a robust business resilience strategy applicable to your specific organisation’s needs. SURE training empowers business leaders to learn and apply critical skills for comprehensive crisis management planning and provides tangible processes for SME leaders to build user-friendly crisis management tools. This training empowers leaders and businesses to face and manage threats from any kind of hazard, crisis, or disaster.

Adapt your business to any disruption
The SURE training programme defines business resilience as the ability of a business to anticipate and respond to the crisis, not only to survive and recover but also to evolve.” To do so, you need to build and strengthen three capacities within your business.
