Since March 19, 2020 Alliance leaders have participated in a CEO survey to measure how businesses are experiencing the COVID-19 crisis -- to gauge the depth of impact, the latest business trends and the progress of returning employees to their workplaces. Here, you'll find the most recent Week #53 (March 15, 2021) CEO Survey results.
In a flash survey completed by members of the Alliance of Chief Executives taken on March 19, 2020, just a few days after the USA’s first shelter-in-place order, 75% of the CEOs report negative impacts, while 9% are being positively impacted. Collectively, these Bay Area leaders believe it will be 4.9 months before we return to “normalcy.” The survey was completed by CEOs in the six Bay Area counties who were issued the shelter-in-place order on March 17. The State of California just expanded this order statewide on March 20, and more than likely, other states will follow. CEOs in other regions can look to this data to help make their own plans.
