KPMG provide a US CEO Outlook report that I felt was worth mentioning. Paul Knopp, Chair and CEO of KPMG U.S. included this in his introduction to the KPMG CEO Outlook the following remarks. “With this year’s CEO Outlook, we set out to explore how CEOs are positioning their organizations for the post-pandemic future. Our survey of more than 1,300 CEOs from large, global companies, including 400 in the United States, shows that U.S. CEOs remain confident in the growth prospects of the domestic economy and their businesses as confidence in global economic growth is rising.” He went on to describe the trends the report noted. A summary of those outlooks are:
“To achieve optimal post-pandemic growth while balancing top risks like cybersecurity, supply chain disruptions and tax changes, CEOs intend to stay:
U.S. CEOs are seeking out strategic mergers and acquisitions, while continuing to invest in digital transformation initiatives. Gaining digital capabilities including data and analytics are an important driver for these efforts. Data-driven insights and transparency will help CEOs more confidently devise future growth strategies.
U.S. CEOs recognize that their principal objective is to embed purpose into everything they do. They are also working on making sure that ESG initiatives deliver financial results while also helping solve social and environmental challenges. They are bound on using technology to perfect the outcomes of their ESG initiatives.
Workforces are top of mind for U.S. CEOs, and many believe that a strong employee value proposition is their top operational priority over the next three years. Given that many employees are experiencing, or have experienced, burnout during the pandemic, CEOs are focusing on employee mental health and well-being.”
If you would like to review the entire report, you will find it available for download on the KPMG.com web page. Very interesting reading.
