We keep our ear to the ground for the interesting stats, insights and discussion points you need to feel in the know.

1. Relentless disruption

Ever more frequent shocks are reshaping the globe and our economy. Over the past 15 years, successive economic and geopolitical crises have quickly sent shockwaves throughout the world, affecting every country, economy, trading relationship and business operation. Amid uncertainty around how the war in Ukraine may end — or escalate — continued recovery from COVID-19 and even digitally with 77% of respondents in the recent EY Global Information Security Survey having seen an increase in disruptive cyber-attacks, up from 59% in the previous 12 months, business leaders are faced with the challenges of navigating in the dark, accelerating already urgent transformation plans, and building resilience for impacts that may yet strike.

2. Turn fake news detective

Like another modern-day Agatha Christie, Dr. Stefan Heissner, EY EMEIA Forensic & Integrity Services Leader is also doing his bit to help media companies investigate and unearth fake news. In 2019, a CIGI-Ipsos global survey found that 44% of people admitted to being duped by fake news at least some of the time and 40% said their trust in media had declined because of fake news. Amid a flood of false, misleading or misinterpreted information, audiences have difficulty knowing whom to trust and what to believe, and consumers may be more likely to seek out news that reinforces their existing views, even if it’s based on unreliable information.  So how can media companies fight fake news?

3. Reimagining the world of work

24% of organizations say all employees must return to the office five days a week, while only 12% of employees are looking to come back full time. Where’s the disconnect? Should you bring your people to the work? Or bring the work to your people? Join the webcast on 17 May for what should be a lively discussion on hybrid working.  

4. Create an oasis for food deserts

Food prices are at an all time high in 2022 the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) reports. How do these price increases affect those in “food deserts” where it is already hard to access good quality, cost effective food? Nearly one in eight people in the US do not regularly have access to safe and nutritious food in fact. But what is a food desert? It is an area which has a low count of fresh food shops and low-cost supermarkets. It may mean that access to a car is necessary, or the cost of a return bus fare is needed to be able to shop for fresh food if only convenience food stores are available close to home. Despite the struggle that many go through to get access to high quality food, how is it possible that we waste 30% to 40% of the world’s food production?

5. Entry requirements? Get in the know.
