As the COVID-19 pandemic progresses, many executives are starting to rationalize how their teams safely return to work. With restrictions varying between regions and countries, it can be difficult to develop a comprehensive strategy. This challenge is further compounded by economic uncertainty and supplier dependencies.

This webinar from BDO and Fusion Risk Management outlines the crucial steps to successfully restoring your operations. It also demonstrates how software can streamline managing near-term goals and increasing long-term operational resilience so you don't take one step forward and two steps back.
