COVID-19 list of possible risk responses for your company, no bs

At the time of the crisis, risk community should come together and better collaborate on the risk responses our companies are doing. I’ve read so much on COVID-19 lately, most are fascinating reads, very few, if any, are practical enough to implement as an in-house CRO, so I tried to list some of the best ideas I came across.

These are actions organisations are actually taking to protect employees and the business from COVID-19. More than 221 organisations participated in the survey.
