Webinar (16 April): ACCA’s Covid-19 global survey – Impacts and responses from businesses

14th April 2020

The ACCA invites you to join their live, interactive 60-minute webinar on Thursday, 16 April, when they will share the results of a survey of over 10,000 ACCA members and other finance professionals from across the world. We’ll be looking at the business impacts they’re facing as a result of the Covid-19 challenge and exploring the activities and strategies they are adopting and planning in response.

Headlines about the research

  • The findings gauge the short to medium term implications, while also looking at the measures undertaken and considered by organisations to mitigate the damage. The research also looks at what lessons we can all learn from the pandemic.
  • With 27% and 31% of respondents employed respectively in SMP and organisations with 50 or fewer employees, the report includes small (SME and SMP) and large organisation perspectives on key issues.
  • 80% of business leaders anticipate significant downturn in expected revenues and profit year-on-year. The outlook is particularly challenging for smaller businesses.

Register for the webinar, which will take place on Thursday, 16 April (11AM/ BST).

The full report will be published on 27 April on ACCA’s Covid-19 Hub. The Hub includes useful resources to help organisations (including SMPs) deal with the impacts and implications, and a section on well-being.
