Great companies don't just respond to crises, they seize them as opportunity to become better—cast off what is no longer working and pivot to new ways of doing business. To help them move forward in informed ways, KPMG conducts surveys of both CEOs and workers to uncover attitudes, responses and concerns around workforce issues. Across industries, we are exploring challenges and opportunities presented by COVID-19.
In our global CEO Outlook research, we discussed evolving transformation priorities and long-term workforce strategies with 315 large company leaders. In our American worker pulse survey, we looked to 1400 members of the U.S. workforce to tell us how well corporate responses are working for their employees. Below are some key industry-specific insights based on those studies.
