Private Business: The way ahead - PwC has spent six months talking to private businesses about the lessons learned during a year unlike any other
In 2020, we saw the biggest upheaval of the UK business community in modern times. Overnight, entire workforces shifted to remote working. International borders closed, with flights grounded. Logistics and supply chains required immediate reorganisation. At the same time, business leaders began to reimagine their role in society and to consider the legacy they would leave for future generations.
