GNDI 2020-2021 Survey: Board Governance During the COVID19 crisis
The COVID-19 global health crisis has had an unprecedented impact on business and society across the globe and boards have responded to help their organizations navigate the challenges.
New research by the Global Network of Director Institutes (GNDI) member institutes and supported by Marsh & McLennan, reveals directors’ perspectives on Covid-19 impacts as well as directors’ views on the trajectory of boardroom and external trends.
Over 60% of the nearly 2,000 global survey respondents note that the pandemic will accelerate growing attention on ESG, sustainability and stakeholder value issues. In addition, the pandemic has shifted how directors will approach risk oversight, strategy oversight and human capital risks going forward.
In terms of board operations, Covid-19 has accelerated the use of digital tools and virtual meetings are expected to become a regular component of board operations.
