According to the Edelman 'Trust Barometer', trust in business now stands at just 43%.
What's more, the 2018 Reputation Dividend Report estimates that corporate reputation is now directly responsible for an average of 38% of market capitalisation of FTSE 350 companies.
With these stark statistics in mind, issue 4 of 'Reporting Matters' is dedicated to reputation: what this intangible measure is; how to manage it; and how to improve it in the context of investor, digital and employee communications.
Edited by Director of Stakeholder Engagement, Stephen Butler, this publication features articles from and interviews with a number of well-known thought leaders including Peter Swabey of ICSA, Lex Suvanto of Edelman, Peter Montagnon of the Insitute of Business Ethics, Gillian Karran-Cumberlege of Fidelio and Arun Pillai-Essex of Verisk Maplecroft.
