Bloomberg: The Year Ahead Davos

Willis Towers Watson is a proud sponsor of “Bloomberg: The Year Ahead Davos,” a Bloomberg Live event series, where Julie Gebauer, head of Human Capital and Benefits, spoke on Tuesday, January 21. Read “The convergence of shareholder and stakeholder capitalism” for an excerpt of her remarks.

This year, we’re focusing on four principal topics:

Climate

Dealing with climate change is a responsibility we all share. Those of us in the business sector will play a key role in facilitating an orderly transition to a low carbon, climate-resilient economy. The global challenge dictates that climate considerations are central to how all organizations are run.

The first essential step for most organizations is to quantify how climate change will impact them. Climate risk is truly multi-dimensional. The potential consequences vary from physical and economic impacts to liability exposures and risks arising from the pace of transition to a low carbon economy. Are you ready to build climate resilient solutions?

Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity today is no longer simply a technology risk for the IT department to handle. A cyber breach can affect your ability to operate and cost millions. It can also have far-reaching consequences that affect your reputation and brand long after the breach itself is resolved.

IT solutions cannot be adopted or implemented in a vacuum. It’s critical for people and technology to have a symbiotic relationship to ensure cyber strategies are connected to the business and its functions.

Have you taken all necessary precautions to mitigate cyber risk?

Inclusion and diversity

To thrive in today’s rapidly changing world, organizations must adopt a company culture that places inclusion and diversity at the center of the talent experience, encouraging all employees to bring their best selves to work. To truly embrace inclusion and diversity, organizations must move beyond simple compliance.

Whether through modernizing total rewards and benefits programs, enhancing integrated wellbeing or assessing future of work strategies, we believe that fostering a company culture steeped in inclusion and diversity will have the greatest impact. Are you inclusive?
