Where do CEOs stand on bringing employees back to the workplace? A recent survey by PwC found that balancing safety considerations and workplace innovations calls for a hybrid approach. “The reality is when CEOs survey their employees they’re asking for many different things and companies are adapting, and they’re adapting fast,” explains Tim Ryan, Chair and Senior Partner at PwC. Findings also point to an emphasis on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. “ESG is a hot topic, and it’s not only from a risk but from an opportunity standpoint,” Ryan says. Investors are driving the trend, but so too are competitive strategies that differentiate companies within their supply-chains. PwC also found planning by global companies now includes the expectation of higher taxes.
