The recent economic downturn and corporate scandals compounded concerns of corporate accountability and confidence in U.S businesses. To improve shareholder confidence in management’s ability to self-govern, the Federal Government implemented strict regulatory protocols to help restore accountability and improve public as well as shareholder confidence. The primary example of course is the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act of 2002 which sought lasting eradication of corporate corruption by implementing specific controls across key financial business processes.

The global recession is taking no prisoners. Neither industry, nor region, nor company-size has provided shelter from its impact. Within the enterprise, few business functions have been unaffected. Yet, as this business downturn continues, the Chief Procurement Officer's ("CPO") agenda and the CEO's agenda have started to converge.

When the economy slows, many businesses react by retrenching and cutting costs in order to weather the downturn. While such cost reduction is important, companies often overlook equally critical strategic decisions - opportunities to use valuable business information to strengthen product and service offerings and emerge ahead of the competition.

Given today’s economic climate, businesses are, more than ever, looking to create additional value through the reduction of risk and by saving costs. For many, the economic downturn is seen as the best time to optimise the infrastructure that they already have in place, to look at ways to trim unnecessary expenditure and to use existing resources more effectively. As organisations are increasingly reliant on data networks that encompass an ever-growing range and number of internet protocol (IP) enabled devices and applications, they need to more effectively administer and manage these assets—they can no longer take the management of their IP networks for granted.

Two dominant trends are potentially reshaping the role of the HR function in the corporate world. The first relates to the rapid growth of the knowledge economy. In this environment, a committed, appropriately skilled and prudently deployed workforce is critical in order to develop new products and outstrip the competition. Second, many administrative functions that were formerly handled by HR departments, such as payroll and pensions, have now been farmed out to third parties. Indeed, research reveals that more than two-thirds of companies outsource a portion of their HR functions. This report by the Economist Intelligence Unit investigates whether the HR function is forging a close and robust relationship with the CEO. It also explores the nature of these working relationships, how they have been affected by the economic downturn and how they vary across industries and regions.

The seismic shift in consumer behavior has created the slow demise of many long-established, iconic brands. The woes of brick and mortar retail have become a daily news item, with store closures and financial downturns dominating the headlines. Though low cash and heavy debt play a significant role, many point to online retail as the culprit for this decline. Retail margins on average fell to 9% last year from 10.5% in 2012 and over that period ecommerce sales increased to 15.5% of total sales according to the Wall Street Journal. For most companies, this meant shifting towards online sales.

When times get tough, people re examine old habits and brand loyalties. Consumers are more conscious about spending their hard earned money and their tastes shift dramatically as they cut back. Virgin Mobile USA was able to see exactly how their consumers were changing during the economic downturn by surveying their online community of customers. The panel brings together hundreds of customers to interact with the organization on a variety of issues. The results were so interesting that both Forbes Magazine and the Chicago Tribune wrote an article about the findings.
