The word for 2021 is ‘resilience’.

Having the capacity to recover, to bounce back, to weather a storm and shine brighter on the other side is a challenge that almost every business is facing as we look to the second half of 2021.

Resilience lives in your infrastructure, in your adapted business model, in the well-being strategies you have put in place to support your people, and fundamentally, in the conversations that you are having, and the stories that you are sharing with your investors, your employees, your clients and your suppliers.

The stories that show you are still in the game, full of spirit and ready to charge out the other side of the pandemic. Yet the platforms we use to share those stories have evolved and the way in which we used to connect has changed.

We spoke to business leaders about their key challenges for building a resilient engagement programme and here’s what they said:
  • Finding a structured and cost-effective way to bring teams together after downsizing office space
  • Embracing the hybrid model – continuing the evolution of virtual engagement while also embracing the potential of face to face meetings and the return of live events in the second half of 2021
  • Embedding sustainability into meetings, events and travel programmes
  • Ensuring the transfer of knowledge, retention of talent and cohesion of culture that comes from a talent focused mobility programme against the backdrop of the pandemic, Brexit and the Posted Worker Directive.
