Less than a fifth of medium and large Irish businesses remain in crisis mode management despite the continued impact of Covid-19.

While the pandemic continues to wreak havoc on large swathes of the economy, almost half of larger firms here have moved their focus to planning for the future, according to research from professional services firm Aon.

Businesses that diligently manage continuing volatility could see their shareholder value rise by as much as 20pc next year, the research of over 200 medium and large firms found. However, at the other end of the scale, those who fail to adequately deal with the pandemic could see shareholder value depreciate by up to 30pc in the same period.
