What Canadian businesses can learn from the Edelman Trust Barometer

We urgently need to understand the behaviours that erode trust and eradicate them. We need to value the practices that build trust and multiply those. Lack of trust is costly to society, to businesses and to us as individuals.

  1. Hi Dominique. Your note prompted me to get the full Edelman Report for 2015. Very interesting material on technology that I can put to use. Hope all is well with you these days.

    1. Hi Bob, I think the Edelman Trust Barometer is fascinating, discouraging, and probably a little on the high side. I’d bet you the real results are actually worse. I’m doubtful that the results in dictatorships are actually that high – more likely, people fear to dissent – just a guess though. Still, plenty of work to do for trust builders!

      Thanks for stopping by and happy the information was helpful.

  2. Hi There!

Things are fine here. After a false start or two I began a part-time job last September with the Financial Consumer Agency in stakeholder relations. Then RuthAnne won a competition there and last month we started working together on the same team! Not a situation many spouses would choose but so far it seems to working out just fine – no doubt partly because I’m only there part-time. The work is really interesting and it’s a fairly small organization with lots of good people, so we’re enjoying it a lot. > > Warm regards, > > S
