Trust: a critical asset
22 June 2021
The Harvard Law School Forum on Corporate Governance features a new post on the importance of trust: “The growth in the number and complexity of board responsibilities is taking place in an environment of growing skepticism towards our various institutions.
“Against that background, companies and their boards can help to address these multiple challenges by considering one of the most critical assets not on their balance sheets―trust.”
When was the last time your board discussed trust? Do you know how trusted you are? What are the implications for your organisation if trust is eroded? And how would you go about rebuilding it?
