In the first months of 2021, businesses have found themselves performing a delicate balancing act: having to navigate both Covid-19’s public health challenges and a prolonged downturn, while at the same time as preparing for the upcoming easing of lockdown restrictions and the growth it is hoped they will bring.

With so much still to be decided, organisations are focusing on initiatives that help them achieve the best possible state of readiness for the uncertain situation ahead.
