New study shows digital preparedness helped organizations adapt to COVID-19
The pandemic sparked a renewed focus on employee engagement and societal well-being
The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) has released the results of an in-depth study of how the relationship between technology, business and people evolved during the COVID-19 pandemic. The EIU heard from business leaders across eight distinct industries about the challenges and opportunities the disruption created for organizations and how digital initiatives shifted to confront a new reality.
The full digital report is available now from the EIU and Microsoft. More information about the findings and how it will affect Microsoft's strategy can be found on the Microsoft News Center.
In addition to the cross-industry report, the microsite includes eight companion industry snapshot reports that take a deeper look at the concerns and technology drivers for the industries included in the EIU study.
The study spanned 15 countries in the Americas, Asia-Pacific and Europe, surveying 800 senior executives, 100 from each of these eight industries: automotive, consumer goods and retail, education, financial services, government, healthcare, manufacturing, and media and communications.
