What a year. Who would have thought it as we celebrated the Top 100 this time last year, we would now be in the midst of a world-wide pandemic, destroying lives and livelihoods in every part of the planet?

It has been said many times, but the world will never be the same again, particularly the economy.

Now more than ever, our Top 100 companies will have an indispensable role in supporting jobs, investment and most important of all, leading the way forward toward the revival and recovery of our battered economy. The reality is that until a vaccine is produced, our Top 100 and the business community as a whole will have to find creative ways to safely work around this virus and protect as many jobs as possible to avoid the high levels of poverty which will only exacerbate the mental and physical health problems within our communities.
