Following the second wave of ACCA’s global survey on the organisational impacts of Covid-19 – where the first wave attracted over 10,000 responses – this webinar will compare the evolving impacts of Covid-19 on public sector organisations.

The analysis will cover the severity of Covid-19 impacts for the public sector, the current and anticipated response measures, and real-life examples of how ACCA members are leading the charge in addressing this crisis.

Learning outcomes

Attendees will be able to:

  • apply the recommendations from our Covid-19 series to their own organisations.
  • consider the wider impacts of Covid-19 on the sector and the implications for their own organisations.
  • understand and adopt good practices undertaken by other ACCA members in supporting their organisations to deal with the crisis.
