Building Business Resilience

March 29, 2021

Over the past year, the risk of a global pandemic became a reality. As businesses and societies assess the damage imposed, it is clear that strengthening strategic planning is now more important than ever for individuals and their businesses.

For businesses, the economic, technological and reputational pressures of the current circumstances risk a disorderly shakeout, which threatens to create a significant amount of workers and companies that are left behind in the markets of the future


The World Economic Forum’s Global Risks Report for 2021 details that the business industry is facing disruption and uncertainty from many angles. The report highlights the Top Global Risks by Likelihood as well as by Impact, the top 3 risks for each category are as follows:

  • Top Risks by Likelihood – Extreme Weather, Climate Action Failure and Human Environmental Damage
  • Top Risks by Impact – Infectious Disease, Climate Action Failure, Weapons of Mass Destruction


These long-term risks have businesses wondering on how to be prepared for the unknown, how to survive and how to build resilience. To build and maintain resilience, it is important that businesses keep an eye on potentially high impact events in the short-term and on the longer-term landscape.

The business landscape is becoming increasingly more unpredictable due to the uncertainty and confusion of the pandemic. The need for businesses to become adaptive and reactive to constant change is more important than ever, as well as being prepared to respond effectively to future risks.
