Trust is at the centre of human relations and is the glue that holds our society together. In business, trust is a critical ingredient for innovation and investment, to foster consumer loyalty and nurture employee motivation. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the digital economy where public trust in the benefits of the digital transformation has been the basis for economic growth and societal progress.
With the general public increasingly expecting ethical behavior from business and its leaders, trust building through ethical leadership has become as important as the services and products themselves. Businesses who establish clear values and ethics to inform compliance, governance and decision-making will ensure their brand’s reputation. Given that it is individuals rather than organizations who make the decisions, businesses need to strengthen ethical leadership at all levels to avoid trust breaches. Companies that go beyond the legal requirements and ask themselves, ‘what is the “right” thing to do?’, will gain an important economic advantage over those who do not.
