Thursday, 11 June 2020


    The COVID-19 crisis has had a profound impact on the Australian economy and society. See how the AICD’s members have responded and what policies they would like to see to support recovery.

    Between 18 May and 2 June, more than 2,300 AICD members from a range of sectors responded to a survey on the governance impact of COVID-19. The results showed the challenges that the crisis has posed to many organisations and the bold steps required to see Australia through the recovery phase.

    Survey result highlights

    • More than two-thirds (68 per cent) of members would like the Federal Government to radically rethink its agenda and develop new policy priorities for a post-COVID-19 world.
    • AICD members on average expect their organisations to operate at 84 per cent of capacity over the next six months.
    • Many respondents (44 per cent) expect to have reduced workforces over the next six months compared to pre-COVID-19 levels.
    • NFP members (43 per cent) are concerned with making going concern assessments or solvency declarations about their organisations in light of the pandemic.
    • The top strategic priorities for AICD members in the next six months include addressing cash flow and customer demand uncertainty, pivoting business operationally and adapting to new ways of working.
