Coronavirus (COVID-19) Business Impact
Pairing people with opportunity resilience
Organizations globally are experiencing unprecedented workforce disruption. Virtually all companies are still determining how we will work in the short- and long-term, as workforces and communities try to function and perform, while struggling to cope with what is happening in their daily lives.
CHROs across industries are rising to the challenge, helping people and organizations navigate massive workforce shifts, such as the urgent need to shift to a remote workforce to protect and empower employees, serve customers and to establish business continuity. For example, the now critical need for virtual care messaging and visits in healthcare.
CHROs’ expertise in developing agile workforce strategies is critical to keeping the global economy viable and helping people and their families survive financially now and in the future. Opportunities are emerging as companies and industries work together to keep people working. For example, Accenture has partnered with CHROs of leading companies to create People + Work Connect, an analytics-based platform that facilitates continued employment.
People, organizations and communities need fit-for-purpose plans today that can evolve as the global health and economic environment changes. Businesses, governments, citizens, and non-profits all play critical roles in establishing a human-centered, systems-minded approach that promotes shared workforce resilience.
