COVID19 Business Impact Insights – A Survey by DFK Australia New Zealand

DFK Australia New Zealand has released the findings from our 2020 COVID19 Survey, in their Business Impact Insights Report.

The survey aimed to assess the impact of COVID19 on businesses, as well as evaluate how prepared they were for working remotely. It also looked at how embracing new technology helped them cope – and how many businesses intent to go back to ‘the way things were’ in terms of technology.
