Global technology company CEOs’ attitudes and priorities have changed during this period of unprecedented disruption due to COVID-19. Our global Technology Industry CEO Outlook reveals how tech leaders have evolved their thinking and strategies since the onset of the disruption. Key findings include the following:
- Eighty-nine percent of global technology company CEOs say the progress of their digital transformation has accelerated by months and even years.
- Even while the focus of ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) practices has recently shifted toward the social component, 57 percent of global tech leaders believe managing climate-related risks will be a key factor in keeping their jobs.
- Only 24 percent of technology company executives have a roadmap to close the gaps in their supply chain that COVID-19 has exposed.
- Talent risk is now a top obstacle to growth, after barely registering as a threat at the beginning of 2020.
