Czech Companies are more Afraid of Workforce Shortage than Cyber Attack or Damage to their Reputation

Czech companies see the most significant risk for their operations in workforce shortage. It is followed by an increase in administrative burden and dishonest behaviour of employees such as crime, theft or fraud. These are the results of the qualitative Corporate Risk Management Survey for 2017 that Aon conducted in the Czech Republic for the first time. The comparison with its Global Risk Management Study that Aon has prepared on a worldwide level for many years shows that Czech organisations significantly differ from companies operating in other parts of the world both in the perception of the significance of individual risks and the approach to their management. Only 1 out of 10 Czech companies have their own risk management department.

European Office Market - 2019 Edition

The office market in Europe is flourishing, with 2018 total volumes at the same level as those of 2017, by far the most active year in the decade. At city level, Central London benefited from the return of activity from small and medium businesses and from the high demand from the Media Tech sector, reaching 1.4m sq m (+19% over 1 year). The four main German markets combined dropped 8% but still represented 3.04m sq m, well above the long-term average. Volumes in Central Paris diminished by 9%, notably due to the lack of very large deals (-30% in transactions over 20,000 sq m). Very high results were achieved in Vienna (+54%), Luxembourg, Lisbon (+21%), Milan and Warsaw (+10%).
