Reputation lens

Apply a reputation lens to your business strategy and decision making

Why this matters

Trust is an important commodity for any organisation. If your customers, your people and your external stakeholders trust you, your financial, strategic and other interests are easier to achieve.

Even when things are going well, trust is fragile and fleeting. Expectations are high, scrutiny is intense, stakeholders are demanding, and the operating environment is full of risk. When crises strike or issues emerge, this situation gets even tougher. Failure to respond well can severely erode trust.

If organisations can ensure reputation is factored in to their ‘peacetime’ decisions and operations and can respond to adversity with their values and stakeholders in mind, they can retain and build trust.
