Webinar: 7 October 2020, 3-4pm

Resilience First is delighted to have collaborated with McKinsey on researching how companies can build on practices used to weather the Covid-19 crisis, and embed them in normal operations in order to move to a more resilient model for the long term.   

The Covid-19 pandemic has clearly demonstrated the need for organisations to be able to weather major, unforeseen disruption. In the UK, 30% of businesses reported they had less than three months of cash reserves, 24% of businesses paused trading, and many more turned to government support (79% applied for the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme).  Organisations that have been able to absorb and adapt to the challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic successfully are, by definition, resilient. Many also find themselves making decisions at a speed which would have been unthinkable in pre-Covid-19 times.

During the research McKinsey conducted interviews with major UK employers, including Intel and UK Power Networks. At the webinar, you will discover the key findings from the study as well as learn five crucial take-aways to reinforce your business’ abilities to bounce forward in the face of crisis.  A detailed guide will be published following the webinar.
