Internal Controls in a COVID-19 World
Since the COVID-19 pandemic kicked off in 2020, there has been an estimated 146 percent increase in organizations reporting that 50 percent or more of their employees work remotely. Many businesses, including nonprofits, are considering moving to a partially or fully remote landscape after the pandemic. As your organization navigates this strategic change, you may need to update, or even transform, your internal control structure to align with new processes, mitigate risk, and promote an effective and efficient work environment.
