A Winmark Report on the 2022/23 Risk Landscape

Winmark’s annual Looking Glass report, in partnership with Clyde & Co, seeks the opinions of senior board, C-suite executive and General Counsel decision-makers on the risk landscape their organisations face and their ability to navigate it effectively.

With every passing year, the risk landscape becomes increasingly fast-moving and unpredictable. COVID-19 has seriously tested the resilience and agility of all organisations. Leaders have been forced to accelerate digital transformation (whilst maintaining robust infrastructure and data security); respond to rapidly changing customer behaviour and sustain organisational culture and employee well-being in the face of drastic upheaval. All of this on top of an already difficult political, economic and regulatory environment.

To explore how organisations are dealing with this complex global risk landscape, we consulted +140 senior business leaders from organisations across a wide range of sectors and with a truly global footprint. In a time of increased departmental integration and demand for inter-disciplinary expertise, we also extended the study to take an enterprise-wide view, gaining the perspective of Board Directors, CEOs and General Counsel (GC) as well as other senior C-Suite executives.

This first report examines the overall risk landscape, focusing on the three areas of risk that business leaders expect to have the biggest impact on their business in the next two to three years: People, Regulation and Technology. This will be followed by a second report taking a deep dive into three topics currently dominating Board agendas — digital transformation, climate change and post-Covid risk. Our final report will explore the rapidly changing role of the General Counsel.
