The Sustainable and resilient enterprises (SURE) programme

The Sustainable and Resilient Enterprises (SURE) training programme seeks to strengthen the capacities of SMEs to prepare, respond, and adapt to the impact of hazards such as disasters, conflict, pandemics and others. SMEs that participate in the SURE training programme will develop resilience strategies that are tailor-made to their unique business profile and risk exposure. 

With its focus on business resilience, the SURE methodology goes a step beyond classical business continuity planning and introduces aspects of business adaptation, digital transformation and staff development to help SMEs become agile, shore up vulnerabilities and build the necessary human elements that are key to business resilience. 

The target end-users of the SURE training programme are SMEs with more than two years of operation and established management capacities. SURE targets both individual business owners and management teams. 

SURE is a blended online training programme that consists of training sessions, self-guided eLearning units and individual coaching sessions. The SURE training journey consists of a total of 16 units that cover the different aspects of business resilience.
