The role of the Supervisory Board in the Covid 19 crisis

Supervisory bodies also have to face new questions and challenges in the context of the Corona pandemic. A whitepaper from Deloitte takes a closer look at the role of the supervisory board in times of Covid-19. It shows that the main work currently is on the executive. The supervisory board should take a supporting internal role in this regard in order to maintain its independence.

The paper identifies the following five types of risk that the board should consider. These include, vacancy risk, availability risk, readiness risk, disruption risk and control risk. All risks are described in more detail in the white paper.
