Resilience Barometer Autumn 2021
Amid the pandemic, increasing technological disruption, a shifting geopolitical landscape, growing social instability and the tightening of regulatory controls, G20 companies are facing an ever-growing and complex concoction of risk. Whilst each of these issues presents its own challenges, preparedness – and by extension resilience – is the key universal antidote that businesses must develop to mitigate these threats.
As the world’s financial, political and social landscapes continue to shift, businesses face an increasingly complex and interconnected range of strategic challenges to their security and growth. From technological transformation and regulatory investigations to financial crime and employee wellness, new threats continue to emerge across every area of business, and within every jurisdiction in which G20 companies operate.
Yet whilst the nature and severity of these threats may change, ebb and flow, the way in which businesses can best mitigate growing risk remains consistent – and that is by being prepared.
By demanding 360-degree insights into the environment within which they operate, businesses can anticipate the challenges and opportunities they may face and can ensure their resilience.
Every day, FTI Consulting works with clients around the world to understand their specific challenges – helping them to anticipate from where and when threats may emerge, thereby empowering them to establish greater resilience.
Since the last FTI Consulting Resilience Barometer, businesses have continued to be considerably affected by the COVID-19 pandemic – our data shows that 58% of G20 companies have seen a reduction in their revenue and headcount since the start of the crisis.
