Trust in the corporate world is at a low ebb, arguably its lowest level since the 2008 financial crisis. Incidents such as the Libor scandal in London and the faking of the emission results from Volkswagen have had a strong, negative effect on the companies that were implicated – and on the credibility of the systems designed to regulate them. Mistrust of institutions has been fuelled further by recent political events in Europe and America.
This is a video summary of a panel discussion hosted by FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance held at the Financial Times in London. It explores the issues around regaining the confidence and trust of staff.
Panel moderator: Michael Skapinker, Associate Editor and columnist at the Financial Times
Peter Montagnon, Associate Director of the Institute of Business Ethics
