Business Resilience in the Time of COVID-19

    The coronavirus (COVID-19) has had devastating effects on millions of people worldwide. The personal and economic impact of the coronavirus is enormous. Beyond the virus itself, thousands of people have lost their jobs, businesses have been forced to close, and organizations and individuals alike face an uncertain future.


    We have created a series of resources to help you better prepare and guide your team through COVID-19 uncertainty. The collection includes blog posts, infographics, and webinars (click either link below to jump directly to that section).

    As humans, we must do what we can to support and ease the suffering of those around us. As business leaders, we have a responsibility to our companies and our employees as well: Respond to this crisis in a way that manages uncertainty while building and maintaining business resilience.
