Powerful CEOs worry about their job security as much as the rest of us do — in fact, maybe even more. From a report: An eye-popping 72% of CEOs are worried about losing their jobs due to the disruptions facing their industries, according to a new report out today from the global consulting firm AlixPartners. That figure jumped 20 percentage points compared to just a year ago, when 52% of CEOs told AlixPartners they were anxious about job security.
The frenetic pace of change in businesses and the world has accelerated since the onset of the pandemic — leading to a spike in CEO anxiety. 94% of executives say their business models need to change within the next three years — but 57% fear their company isn’t adapting fast enough.
