Energy, economy & sustainability

The ongoing escalation in Ukraine and the attacks in Israel show us how fragile peace is. And the impact it has on our economic system: high energy costs, rising inflation and the cost of rent and living. It is becoming increasingly difficult for SMEs to make investments and find employees. For many large companies, competitiveness is at stake. The issues of sustainability, ESG and CSR are being pushed into the background as economic challenges pile up. Although these are the topics of the future par excellence, “Heat or Eat” is the first thing on people’s agendas.

Society & Health

Society is changing rapidly and many people are finding it difficult to cope with the pressure. The result is mental health problems and depression. Uncertainty in politics, uncertainty at work and uncertainty about one’s own standing in society are making people ill. More and more young people have also built up little resilience and are falling victim to the disease. Mental health and psychological safety are essential if companies are to be able to count on healthy employees.
