COVID-19 Economic Scenarios
Indicate Dramatic Shifts
Read the White Paper
The COVID-19 pandemic has brought immense change and disruption. Healthcare systems have been overwhelmed, and social distancing and efforts to “flatten the curve” have slowed or, in some cases, brought to a screeching halt certain sectors of the economy. The economic impact of these measures may not be fully assessed for some time, but it is imperative that organizations understand the potential effects and begin to make changes now to ensure they can adjust and adapt to the new economic reality.
Companies must move quickly to understand the impact that COVID-19 will have on their organization, and then just as quickly use that knowledge to adapt in order to weather the storm. Once a company has made the right moves to survive and ideally thrive in the pandemic, it can then shift its view forward towards a longer-term strategy that will enable success and growth in the economy after COVID-19. To assist companies with this critical and timesensitive effort, this whitepaper will offer Cicero’s perspectives on the following topics:
- The business impact of COVID-19
- Immediately addressing the crisis
- Ensuring business continuity
- Planning for strong recovery and growth
