2022 will mark the year of adaptation, says the firm, as businesses worldwide will be challenged to develop and maintain resilience and continuity, despite major disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and geopolitical chaos. In addition, they will be faced by new challenges, including the need to retain, upskill and reskill an increasingly changing workforce.
The concept of a 9-to-5 work week will be contested, says the firm. However, a rapidly expanding virtual universe and demand for a circular economy hold new promises and expectations.
“As industries adapt themselves to these uncertain times, it is imperative for companies to secure the IT/OT infrastructure and strengthen supply chains to ensure business resiliency, build a clear strategy for digital upskilling and reskilling of the workforce, and adopt a sustainability leadership and innovation mindset,” says Vinay Venkatesan, TechVision Program Manager at Frost & Sullivan. “By embracing these pivotal positions, companies can capitalize on opportunities and drive growth.”
