Interactive conversations in KPMG LLP's series What now. What next.
Let’s talk. As the world heads into uncharted territory, business leaders are navigating the impacts of COVID-19. Now is the time to discuss the new reality.
With an agenda shaped by your input, we're meeting each week to address the business-critical challenges brought on by this pandemic. KPMG is actively connecting with the market to share leading perspectives from hundreds of clients around the world. Join us for this series as we talk through the most pressing issues and solutions we’ve heard from executives, governments and other regulators.
Topics for the April 22 discussion were based on recommendations by participants in the April 15 discussion.
Culture: An organizational antidote for COVID-19
As you plan for the next phase in this COVID-19 environment (whatever that looks like for your organization), one thing is clear—you won’t be successful unless your people are fully engaged. And while much of the collective activity to date has been somewhat “mandated” by state and federal governments, the path forward will largely be in the hands of your respective leadership teams. Given that dynamic, this discussion included actions you can take today to ensure that employee engagement is a key driver and potential differentiator for you tomorrow.
Looking ahead: Forecasting despite uncertainty
In the dynamic environment we now face, historical performance can no longer be your primary predictor of future performance. You need the ability to tap into dynamic external data to quickly and accurately update your forecast and provide guidance to inform your plans and budgets despite widespread uncertainty. And that means a new approach. This discussion included the critical information you need in the short-term to make decisions, highlight real-world examples and provide a framework to help you get started.
