Recession Resilient or Recession Proof?

Are we in a recession?

In the UK, all the economic indicators are that the country is now officially in a recession.

In the US, the economy is still growing and the labor market is strong, which (technically) means that the country is not in a recession. However, it is clear that a lot of US-based CEOs and Founders don’t FEEL that secure about the short to medium-term future

Key Global Challenges

❌There are more jobs around than there are people to fill them

❌It’s been 4 decades since inflation was as high

❌Interest rates are rising

❌There is a global energy crisis, pushing prices up for everything

❌We still haven’t escaped the supply chain issues that started 2.5 years ago

❌The impact of the on-going war in Ukraine is being felt across the globe

What does this mean for me and my business?

  • Fewer applicants than jobs means you’re having to fight to fill vacancies. The old-school recruiting techniques aren’t working, because it’s a seller’s market. And unfilled vacancies – not just in YOUR business, but in your supply chain – is restricting your business growth potential
  • Most CEOs have been in post for less than 10 years, so it’s unlikely that you were leading a business the last time that inflation was this high. It’s a whole different ball game now.
  • Until the Central Banks manage to bring down inflation to a manageable figure (3-4%), you can expect interest rates to either stay as they are or go even higher. That means a double-whammy for you at the moment: money is harder to come by, and servicing debt is much more expensive. And that’s not just for you. That’s for your clients and their clients – all the way to the end consumer.
  • There is literally no sector immune to the impact of rising energy and fuel costs. How you deal with it is something that require careful consideration
  • Your supply chain will be as constrained as you by staff shortages, increased inflation and interest rates, and ever-rising fuel costs. And you’ve managed to live with that so far. But how much do you know about the pressures on your suppliers’ supply chain?

What can I do now to make sure we come through this?
