The COVID‐19 crisis is accelerating the transformation of business – one that solidifies the private sector mandate of a stakeholder‐first, rather than shareholder‐only, mentality. We’ve kept a pulse on this shift, brand action and stakeholder expectations, revealing that 75% of the U.S. public believes business must take action to protect employees, care for communities and support front-line workers in the fight against COVID‐19.
