A Reflection on Two Years of COVID-19 and Lessons Organisations Should Take From the COVID-19 Pandemic


11 March 2022 marked two years since COVID-19 was officially declared as a global pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO). In recognition of this milestone, International SOS health and security experts are available to talk about the key learnings from the two years of COVID-19 as well as their outlook and predictions as it transitions into an endemic.

Talking points:

  1. Areas that need to be improved to help organisations manage a pandemic more effectively
  2. The importance of collaboration and recommendations for organisations on building confidence in the accuracy and appropriateness of pandemic information
    • How credible expertise is critical for decision making around working arrangements, vaccine mandates, returning to offices or sites and how to protect vulnerable employees
    • How infodemic and misinformation present challenges for organisations
  3. The evolution of variants and the role treatments and vaccines will play in future
    • Future pandemics and potential diseases, particularly zoonotic diseases, are becoming more likely due to the warming climate, urbanisation, and deforestation
  4. The evolvement of travel environment
    • How business travel will be impacted in the long-term following the pandemic
    • The importance of tailored risk assessments and planning
    • How the pandemic has clearly highlighted the need for flexibility with travel plans
  5. How crisis management has developed throughout the pandemic
    • Discussion of findings from The International SOS Risk Outlook 2022
    • Collaboration between different business functions to establish crisis management teams
