A PROVEN RETURN ON HEALTH & SECURITY INVESTMENT
COVID-19 has forced multiple organisations to have a singular focus on the pandemic, which has created risk blind spots – preparedness for the next crisis or compound crises is essential and not to be forgotten for organisations trying to minimise the impact of health and security threats. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated several existing business continuity issues and created new reputational risks.
Key Business Continuity & Reputational Challenges
A Resource Crisis
More than half of organisations cite 'having adequate resources to deal with COVID-19' as their biggest challenge in ensuring the health and security of their workforce (Ipsos MORI's Business Resilience Trends Watch)
Evolving Employee Expectations
71% of French employees say they are satisfied with their professional situation, but this proportion falls to 37% and 35% respectively among those who consider themselves in a poor physical or psychological condition. (Health at the Heart of HR Strategies, IFOP Research & International SOS)
A Renewed Commitment to Positive Social Change
Two-thirds of CEOs (65%) say that the public is looking to businesses to fill the void on societal challenges. At the same time, 76% said they had a personal responsibility to be a ‘leader for change on societal issues'. (CEO Outlook Survey, KPMG)
