The pandemic irreversibly changed how organisations operate. Business leaders tell Dylan Totton how they have led their teams through this uncertainty and what they have learned as a result.
Featuring commentary from:
Matthew Blagg, CEO, Criticaleye: A strong organisational culture is important and that won’t thrive in the virtual world, so leaders must get their people together to build connections and spark creativity.
Siobhan Boylan, CFO, Brewin Dolphin: It is important to emphasise that people must take a break. You should lead by example [with this] so that people listen.
Reece Donovan, CEO, iomart: Nobody has the answers to all the new challenges we are now facing but, if we build networks and collaborate with others, we can work on improvements together.
Bert Pijls, Chair, Calisen: A lot of companies look at risk management as a disaster-recovery exercise. However, it also applies to your own business model.
Sandy Stash, Independent NED, EVRAZ & Board Mentor, Criticaleye: The biggest takeaway will be more flexible working. I believe it is here to stay, but I do think it will be variable. Companies are going to have to watch this space. Community articles are produced directly by and for the Criticaleye Community.
