Corporate Affairs Professionals Perceive Growing Trust Among Their Stakeholders
Perceived Level of Trust Stakeholders Have in Company, 2016–2021
Four in ten Corporate Affairs professionals now feel they are building stakeholder trust that their business operates in society’s best interest, a significant increase from a year ago.
This could be due in part to positive feedback companies have received as a result of their response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Heightened trust in business may also indicate the successes of stakeholder engagement in working to better understand societal and environmental impacts.
