Survey: 2021 Priorities for Business Leaders


The way businesses pivoted and adjusted in 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic has affected how businesses will have to respond in 2021. This year will be one where flexibility and agility are paramount to being viable. Business leaders will need to address new priorities to maintain profitability, while being creative and resourceful to keep their employees and customers safe.

Oasis, a Paychex® Company, studied the top priorities on the horizon for 300 business leaders across the United States.

We asked:

  • How has the pandemic impacted businesses?
  • What challenges currently impact businesses, outside of COVID-19 pressures?
  • How does technology aid business efficiency?
  • What challenges lie ahead?
  • Would business leaders consider outsourcing?
