The Russian invasion of Ukraine is a tectonic disturbance exacting an immediate toll on people in the region and throughout the world. Many of our associates have family and friends living in Ukraine and Russia. Like many of you, we also have associates in Russia who we care about deeply. Thousands of those based in Europe express stress and anxiety about being so close to the front lines of this Russian aggression.
Our responsibility as leaders is, first and foremost, to ensure the safety and well-being of our employees and their families. Only then can we address the range of business issues that we also face.
As we work actively to help organizations navigate these troubling times, our clients have found it helpful to access insights and tools for a range of leaders, who must work closely together to set immediate- and longer-term strategies to protect the health and welfare of both their people and their organizations.
We don’t yet know how extensive or protracted the impacts of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine will be. Depending on your functional responsibilities, your focus may be on employee welfare, risk exposure, costs, investments, revenue disruptions, supply-chain struggles or value-chain partners. You may be grappling with other operational changes, too.
The resources linked throughout this page are available to any business leader, regardless of their status as a Gartner client. (Existing clients can log in to read Responding to the Russian Invasion of Ukraine and access other resources.) We hope you will find them to be of practical help at this time.
