All segments of Guy Carpenter’s business are being affected by current events, and it is critical that companies provide colleagues with the support needed to move forward with their day-to-day activities. The ability of intelligence technology (IT), human resources and management to respond so effectively to this unprecedented situation by pivoting almost immediately to virtual workplaces has been massively impressive.
The New Shape of Work Podcast is a series from Guy Carpenter-affiliate Mercer that addresses the challenges and uncertainty brought by the coronavirus and how to transition to a more agile workforce for the future.
This podcast is a conversation between Kate Bravery, Mercer Global Advisory Solutions & Insights Leader, and Ethan Murray, Oliver Wyman Digital Partner, covering:
- How forecasting models and scenario analysis can provide insights for better management of health and economy during uncertain times.
- How the Pandemic Navigator™ can support business decisions by providing robust and accurate forecasts for the evolution of the pandemic for the next three to six weeks as well as macroeconomic forecasts, industry-specific revenues and costs under a number of plausible epidemic scenarios until medical breakthroughs or vaccination emerges in mass scale.
- How the data and tools can support the employee experience by providing information about the current and forecasted COVID-19 spread information across over 90 countries, often down to a county.
Guy Carpenter is fortunate to be able to bring the power of Marsh & McLennan Companies to bear through this process by working closing with Mercer and Oliver Wyman to understand the impact on the primary market and wider financial system.
