BSI’s Group Assurance Director, Pietro Foschi will take part in the judging panel. Commenting on the awards, he said:

“2020 was a global, unprecedented test of Resilience and demonstrated the increasing importance of an organizations’ ability to prepare for and respond to unexpected sudden disruptions, not only to survive this prolonged crisis but for some to transform and succeed for the long term.

“As our latest BSI Organizational Resilience Index survey revealed, many organizations demonstrated resilience and adaptability over the last 12 months and we’re looking forward to celebrating some of those organizations at the International Organizational Resilience Awards, which we’re proud to contribute to.”

Omar Rashid, Chief Executive Officer at Blackstone Resilience said:

“Organizations that have managed to become even more successful, especially during the recent turbulent times deserve recognition. The awards act as a beacon for companies who have used their capabilities to foresee, plan for, act on and adjust to incremental change and sudden disruptions to endure and thrive, while keeping their employees and customers safe. We also wanted to have an event so that organizations will benefit by being able to learn from one another, on how resilience was critical to their business and further the ability for others to implement their own successful projects.”
