BDO European Survey - July 2020

09 July 2020

Combating the crisis with business resilience.

This is BDO’s second 2020 European survey: Ensuring a leadership position in 2025 was published in February 2020 - before the COVID-19 crisis broke globally - and, with such unprecedented change occurring in a very short space of time, BDO set out to reengage with European business leaders to understand how their views have changed in the last 6 months. Our research explores the practical changes businesses plan to make in the short-term, so they can survive now and go on to succeed in the long-term – and has uncovered some results that are both encouraging and somewhat surprising.

We undertook research of over 200 business leaders across eight different European countries during late May and early June 2020 and our interviews were focused on executives in Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Italy, Norway, Spain and the United Kingdom.
