The World was taken by surprise and what we once took for granted as small gestures of our daily routine has now been put to the test.
Doubt and uncertainty overcame business communities worldwide. Employers and employees were forced to face new paradigms to which they had to answer fast and in the most efficient way possible.
Ad Capita is in a privileged position when it comes to assess the global markets as the Portuguese exclusive partner firm of the leading network, INAC Global Executive Search. With over 200 consultants worldwide, INAC took upon itself to conduct a unique and global survey to understand the impact of COVID-19 in the decision-making process of top executives.
The “COVID-19 Business Impact Outlook” is the direct result of the participation of 536 Top Executive Leaders from 41 countries, including Portugal.
This global survey allowed us to obtain unique and insightful facts and figures about the “new normal” and what it will look like in the aftermath of COVID-19, when it comes to running a business.
Among many other noteworthy facts, we found out that 5% of these top executive leaders are planning to increase headcount due to new opportunities as a direct result of the new business environment. Interesting enough, 56% intend to keep home office for a significant number of employees resulting in the reduction of office space. And in order to succeed in the post pandemic business world, leaders must be resilient, strategist, forward-thinker and inspirational.
