                无视疫情,企业“买买买”创下纪录

                毕马威的首席执行官称,并购意愿持续加强的背后,是首席执行官们想要改变公司组织的意图。

                尽管新冠疫情危机未减,美国企业的首席执行官们却正在积极扩大业务版图。毕马威会计事务所(KPMG)公布的《2021年首席执行官展望》(2021 CEO Outlook)的早期研究显示,在超过400位受调查的大型公司首席执行官中,有49%表示计划在未来三年里将进行对公司经营有“重大影响”的并购。

                另有37%的受访首席执行官表示,他们对并购的意愿适中,并且有可能进行对公司的整体组织存在中等影响的收购业务。毕马威的首席执行官保罗·诺普告诉《财富》杂志,并购意愿持续加强的背后,是首席执行官们想要改变公司组织的意图。路孚特(Refinitiv)的数据显示,今年迄今,公布的全球并购业务共计35128项,较去年同期增长24%。

                诺普认为,首席执行官们对美国国内经济以及自家公司的增长前景抱有充分的信心,与此同时,在市场当中存在大量的流动资产,利率很低,多达数万亿美元的未投资资本尚处于观望状态。

                “首席执行官们对国内经济和他们公司的生意很满意——他们认为自己的组织活力很好。所以,尽管各种警示性信号重重,他们认为公司应当尽快向未来看齐,而且在如何向未来靠近这个问题上,他们是有些大胆的。”诺普说道。

                但是,许多公司的高管仍然看到了即将到来的风险,甚至超越了新冠疫情所带来的影响。在毕马威的报告中,首席执行官们认为最高的五项风险为:税收、供应链断裂、信誉风险、气候变化,以及网络安全。

                “毫无疑问,首席执行官们正在排兵布阵,建立攻守。”诺普说。他指出,在“攻”端,公司们正在计划着更为激进的并购战略,并加强措施以保证更为迅速的数字化进程;而在“守”端,他们正在加强供应链弹性,增强其应对恶意软件和勒索软件等网络安全威胁的能力。仅有11%的受访首席执行官认为自己的公司已经完全拥有抵御网络攻击的能力。

                除此之外,在去年的调查中,首席执行官们将人才问题视为一项“主要危机”,而在今年,人才问题已经升级成了“优先级操作”。许多公司目前面临严重的劳动力短缺,高管们正在制定策略来解决这一问题。

                为了确保雇员更好地参与公司治理,更具主动性、效率更高,公司们愈发关注雇员的心理健康以及个人福祉,注资让员工提升技能,发展员工多样性,并提供机会,让员工在更多的议题上发出的声音能够被高层听到,例如种族歧视和气候变化等问题。

                大约59%的首席执行官报告称,他们正在考虑共享办公空间,在新冠疫情的背景下允许更强的办公灵活性。超过半数(53%)的公司高管还考虑了招收远程岗位;约有三分之一的公司高管表示其公司员工将每周至少两天远程办公。

                诺普表示,眼前的这波疫情还存在极大的不确定性,而这也必然导致了公司高管们重新考虑工作的未来、远程工作的未来以及灵活性的问题。“这是一记警钟,让我们确保自己专注于雇员和劳动力,专注于多样性和环境的包容性,确保我们拥有可以让我们所有人都更加成功的未来劳动力。”诺普说道。(财富中文网)

                Even as COVID-19 cases continue to surge, U.S. CEOs are looking to aggressively grow their businesses. Early findings from KPMG’s 2021 CEO Outlook report show that 49% of the more than 400 CEOs at large companies surveyed reported that they planned to undertake acquisitions that have a "significant impact" on their business over the next three years.

                An additional 37% of CEOs surveyed reported they have a moderate M&A appetite and will likely make acquisitions that have a moderate impact on their overall organization. The heightened appetite for M&A activity comes as CEOs are looking to transform their organizations, KPMG CEO Paul Knopp told Fortune. Already in 2021, global M&A activity is up, with 35,128 deals announced, a 24% increase from 2020, according to Refinitiv data.

                CEOs have a lot of confidence in the growth potential of the U.S. domestic economy and their own companies, and at the same time, Knopp said, there's a tremendous amount of liquidity in the market with low interest rates and trillions of dollars of uninvested capital sitting on the sidelines.

                “CEOs are feeling pretty good about the domestic economy and their own businesses—they're feeling their organizations are fairly resilient. So despite all the kind of cautionary signs, they feel like they need to move forward into the future and be somewhat bold in terms of how they approach the future,” Knopp said.

                Yet many executives still see risks on the horizon, even beyond the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The top five risks CEOs identified were taxes, supply-chain disruptions, reputational hazards, climate change, and cybersecurity, KPMG reported.

                “There's no doubt about it, CEOs are playing offense and defense right now,” Knopp said. On the offensive side, they’re planning for aggressive M&A strategies and employing measures to ensure rapid digitalization. On the defensive side, companies are bolstering their supply-chain resiliency and shoring up their ability to navigate cybersecurity threats such as malware and ransomware, Knopp said. Only 11% of CEOs surveyed reported their companies were well-prepared for a cyberattack.

                And while CEOs identified talent as a major risk last year, this year executives categorized it as an operational priority. Many companies are facing labor shortages right now in a huge way, so executives are working on strategies to deal with this shortfall, Knopp said.

                In order to ensure employees are engaged, motivated, and productive, companies are focusing on employees’ mental health and well-being, investing in worker training and upskilling, expanding diversity, and providing opportunities for employee voices to be heard on issues such as racism and climate change.

                About 59% of CEOs reported they will be looking at shared office spaces to allow increased flexibility following the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Over half of executives surveyed, 53%, are also looking to hire remote positions and about a third reported their workforce will be working remotely at least two days a week.

                There's a lot of uncertainty about this latest COVID wave, Knopp said, and that’s certainly causing many executives to reconsider the future of work, remote work, and flexibility. “It’s kind of a wake-up call to make sure that we focus our employees, focus on our labor, focus on diversity and inclusive environments to make sure that we have the kind of workforce for the future that is going to make us all more successful,” Knopp said.
