Indian CXOs are more resilient, but anticipate regular disruptions, as compared to global peers: Deloitte’s 2021 Global Resilience Report 

  • Of the 21 countries surveyed, Indian executives gave their organisations the highest rating for maintaining diverse workforces and fostering inclusive cultures.
  • Indian organisations are at par with global businesses, in terms of having had technology in place to enable remote working. 
  • Once the pandemic and lockdowns end, Indian CXOs expect a slightly larger percentage of their workforce to continue operating remotely, as compared to global executives. 

New Delhi, 27 January 2021 – Indian CXOs (77%) appear relatively confident about their organisation’s ability to adapt, and their own ability to lead through uncertain times as compared to global peers. In the wake of a tumultuous 2020, CXOs also believe disruption is here to stay, according to Deloitte’s 2021 Global Resilience Report. In fact, 70% of the CXOs surveyed in India, do not see 2020 as a rare event and believe they are likely to see occasional, or regular, disruptions of this scale going forward, as compared to 62% globally.

Worsening climate events have given Indian CXOs enough cause to anticipate regular disruptions. They also have a higher propensity to believe that climate change is a crisis of greater magnitude (51%) than COVID-19, as compared to global peers (44%). 

“The year 2020 has propelled organisations in India, and the rest of the world, to think creatively given the disruptive environment. Our research reveals that resilient organisations; with flexible, adaptable, long-term, innovative mindsets that cultivate resilient cultures, are better positioned to overcome disruptions and help usher in a “better normal” post pandemic”, said Joydeep Datta Gupta, Partner, Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu India LLP. “It shows that acting early, and being prepared, matters and offers proven lessons for increasing organisational success”, he added.
