Let's Talk About Trust and Transparency

Posted by Mathew French on 23 June 2020

Edelman has been publishing their annual Trust Barometer Report for 20 years now, and the 2020 report illustrates what you might call an 'epic fail' in trust across the board. No institutions are seen as being both competent AND ethical. Only business is seen as being competent and only NGOs are seen as ethical. Add to that the fact that 56% percent of respondents believe that capitalism as it currently operates today is doing more harm than good and you can see that there is both a significant need for change as well as a tremendous opportunity for transformation. It shouldn't surprise anyone to hear that trust and transparency are more critical to success than ever, especially given current circumstances.

However, case studies prove time and again that if you want to know what your people think, what matters to them, how you're tracking against the important things and generally how you're performing as an organisation, it is imperative for you to decide on some metrics and then measure them religiously and regularly.

Do You Know What Your Values Are?

Posted by Mathew French on 24 June 2014

All this talk about values got me thinking : I wonder how many of us, HR Professionals in particular, actually really know what our own personal values are. Why do we do what we do, and what gets us out of bed in the mornings?

I’m sure most of us think we know what they are. However, if you look at the statistics, 30% of people often cite family as one of their most important values, yet a surprising number of these people also often spend a lot of time travelling for business meetings.
