Long Term Impacts Beyond the Crisis

April 9, 2020 12:00 pm - April 9, 2020 1:00 pm




The continued expansion of the coronavirus outbreak has forced individuals and businesses to fundamentally alter the way they live and work.

Out of necessity and despite disruptions, we’ve discovered that in many cases we can work remotely, that meetings can be done virtually, that school lessons can be completed online, and that travel is often not necessary.

The implications for the future are profound. Individual and business behaviors have been forced to change, and it may be hard to return to “normal.” Sometimes these changes have unintended consequences – for example a company’s just-in-time supply chain may now be a liability instead of an asset.

Join this webinar where our panel of experts will discuss the implications of the pandemic and how our risk management response has altered the future of life and work.
