Where has all the trust gone?

We all know trust is in short supply. Whether it’s institutions, politicians or business leaders, the average person really doesn’t have much trust. Only 44 percent say CEOs are credible spokespeople. Academics, peers and financial analysts are more trusted. Importantly, so are employees.

The good news? Two-thirds of people say CEOs – not governments – should take the lead on societal change. We take that to mean expectations are higher than ever before. So are the opportunities.
