One interesting result regarding new board appointments: It is striking that when they make new appointments, 78% of Board members surveyed seek to increase general Board diversity – including skills, experience and personality – and 71% want to increase the level of digital know-how on the Board.
About the survey
The swissVR Monitor is a survey conducted jointly by swissVR, Deloitte and the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. Every six months, this survey will gauge the attitudes of members of Swiss company Boards of Directors towards the outlook for the country’s economy and their sector. It will also gauge their attitudes towards current matters of relevance to Boards. Each issue of swissVR Monitor will also explore a focus topic in greater detail. The surveyed Board members represent firms from SMEs to listed companies across a range of sectors. With more than 400 members surveyed it is an accurate reflection of the attitudes of Boards of Directors in Swiss companies.
