It seems like business leaders may finally be waking up to the importance of trust as as a brand/company asset.
This week we heard from Sheryl Connolly Ford’s Futurist, about the increasing value of trust as the “new black” www.businessinsider.com/fords-biggest-trends-for-2013-2012-12, and from Cheryl Guerin Senior Vice President at Mastercard, positing that trust is an advantage for established companies. www.businessinsider.com/trust-could-be-the-achilles-heel-of-new-payment-companies-2012-12
Amen ladies! Perhaps it’s the Sheryls/Cheryls of the world, or female business leaders for that matter, who are about to turn the “trust” switch to the “on” position as a management tool that should not be ignored. Trust is measurable and companies that embrace it as a business tool reap the rewards. Trust Across America has been preaching this, to a growing audience, for quite some time. www.trustacrossamerica.com/blog/?p=573
Let’s just hope that companies are genuinely waking up to the importance of stakeholder trust, rather than using trust as the latest “in” buzzword.
