The Covid crisis has had two major effects on businesses.
The first, a direct consequence of confinements, is the explosion of teleworking.
The second major change in this crisis is the acceleration of deep trends that have already started.
We can talk about the commitment of companies in the climate transition.
By building very green recovery plans, governments are pushing them to develop cleaner products, to recycle more, to waste less.
Another notable acceleration is the strengthening of corporate citizenship.
We saw it in the spring of 2020 with their mobilization for the production of respirators, masks or hydroalcoholic gels.
Social and environmental responsibility, raison d'être, solidarity become essential values shared and defended by employees, managers and shareholders of companies.
Third indisputable change, the acceleration of the digital turn at all levels, for teleworking as for distance selling.
So many developments that are profoundly disrupting companies, not without worrying managers in passing: carrying out such transformations head-on and step by step is an immensely complex challenge.
Three mornings for three challenges
During our Big Bang Figaro of Companies, we will analyze and discuss these challenges with leaders of multinationals, start-ups, economists, politicians and philosophers who are confronted and reflect on these issues that are fundamentally reshaping our society. .
The first morning, June 1, will be devoted to the Big Bang of Work with substantive questions: with teleworking and the explosion of new technologies, is wage employment threatened?
The second morning will deal with the place of business in society, with citizens, States and all stakeholders.
Finally, the morning of June 3 will be devoted to environmental responsibility: are companies doing enough to fight the climate emergency?
Producing clean, innovating and working differently are challenges as colossal as the upheavals caused by assembly-line work and industrial mechanization at the start of the last century.
Let’s hang on our seat belts, this revolution is rolling in…
