Responding to the potential business impacts of COVID-19

COVID-19 can cause potentially significant people, social and economic implications for organisations. This page provides information on how you can prepare your organisation and respond.

The COVID-19 outbreak has been declared a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization, causing huge impact on people’s lives, families and communities.

As the international response continues to develop, we know that organisations are facing several potentially significant challenges to which they need to respond rapidly. We are working closely with organisations globally to help them in preparing and responding, sharing our experience having worked with companies, governments, regulators, NGOs and international organisations around the world to respond to some of the most high profile outbreaks (including Ebola, MERS, SARS and bird flu).

For this purpose, we have compiled a practical checklist with the most important challenges for your company. These include, for example, how to plan for an emergency, communicate in a targeted manner, manage your personnel, secure your supply chain and make information-based decisions.
