Managing Change to Reshape your Business Today
No matter your organisation’s size or industry, business continuity planning is front-and-centre of every boardroom discussion. How to deliver the change required to retain existing clients, let alone attract new ones? How to survive, let alone grow? These are the pressing questions for today’s management teams.
How big is the problem? U.K. corporations are still contemplating the mid-July report from the Item Club, an EY think-tank, who have forecast the UK’s GDPP contraction will now reach 11.5% for 2020, together with a doubling of unemployment to 9.0%.
As Mark Gregory, EY UK’s chief economist, said: “Government measures have provided significant short-term support, but many businesses are waiting for more certainty over the economic outlook before making longer term investment decisions.”
Opportunity can be found amidst continuing economic uncertainty. Regardless of your industry – and especially if you’re in construction, legal, or logistics – business continuity is an urgent priority. At a more granular level, it’s almost certain that you’re factoring risk, sustainability, and cost-reduction.
This report explores approaches to deliver the core changes you require to drive business survival.
Effective Strategies to Manage your Hybrid Workforce Today
The unexpected pandemic effect has caused business leaders to realise that how we use the traditional office is obsolete. The new normal has revealed another truth: the majority of businesses remain woefully unprepared. Processes have floundered because of inadequate investment into proven technologies, and the shortcomings in Human Resources has resulted in a wholesale disregard for employer’s Health and Safety obligations. The result: a haemorrhaging of goodwill from customers and supply chains and, inevitably, demoralised staff.
The future requires systems which enable our ‘knowledge workers’ to be productive and safe, regardless of their location. They require access to critical data, process control, and essential equipment, while our organisations need total communication security and enhanced cyber security.
This report explores how best to proceed in developing an effective hybrid working strategy in a fast-changing world.
