ORESA: COVID-19 Survey – have your say!

In May, ORESA – a specialist executive search, headhunters and growth architects firm – launched its first leadership survey to gather insight on how businesses and leaders were responding to the COVID-19 crisis.

Alongside Business Leader, ORESA are now launching part two of the survey which will report on the current picture and chart how opinions have changed. We can’t do this without you so thank you in advance for contributing to this valuable insight.

The new survey takes five minutes – don’t forget to provide your details at the end of the survey to receive the results.
