Leading “The Great Reset”: Deloitte 2021 Resilience Report

Deloitte Global’s 2021 Resilience Report, Building The Resilient Organization, explores how organizations have coped with the tumultuous events of 2020 and identifies the traits that characterize a resilient organization—traits business leaders can cultivate in order to build greater resilience into their own companies. The survey of more than 2,000 C-suite executives across 21 countries confirms that organizations that plan and invest in anticipation of disruptions—whether on the scale of an isolated cyber-attack or a full-blown health pandemic—are better positioned to respond, recover, and thrive.

Deloitte’s delegation and perspectives on “The Great Reset”

Punit Renjen, Global Chief Executive Officer

In the wake of ongoing global disruptions there is an urgent need for government and business leaders to act swiftly and cooperatively to build a better normal for more of the world’s stakeholders. Those organizations that deliberately cultivate resilience and embed it in all aspects of their operations will prosper and help make the ‘Great Reset’ a reality.”

Sharon Thorne, Global Chair

"For a ‘Great Reset’ to be viable, businesses must proactively embrace their responsibility to protect and improve our planet and communities. The lessons learned over the past year have given us an opportunity to build resilience for the future. Now we must come together to ensure we’re putting environmental sustainability as well as diversity, equity, and inclusion at the heart of our strategies."

Vimi Grewal-Carr, Global Clients & Industries Leader

"The pandemic has provided us an opportunity to pause, take a breath, and view our challenges from a global perspective. Our world comprises many connected ecosystems, and issues are no longer limited to one location. We are truly all in this together."

Cindy Hook, Asia Pacific Chief Executive Officer

"Having seen the strength and resilience of Asia through the pandemic, I am confident the region will build back better through the ‘Great Reset’. As the world comes together to address climate change – Asia will play a critical role – as the region most vulnerable to its impacts but also with the ability to drive the biggest change - the battle against climate change will be won or lost in Asia."

Sami Rahal, France Chief Executive Officer
