Overview

COVID-19 has triggered an international response that is unprecedented in terms of how enterprises engage during a pandemic. Until recently, such an event was largely a fictional exercise of documenting what might occur and business continuity impacts. The majority of U.S. businesses have not tested an all-encompassing pandemic action plan beyond the creation of documents that serve as checkboxes for compliance.  The overarching response to preventing the spread of coronavirus through self-quarantine has now propelled the workplace into a rapid migration away from physical offices and work-related events.   COVID-19 has triggered an international response that is unprecedented in terms of how enterprises engage during a pandemic.
