Seminars & The Trusted Workplace™

Corporate trust will become an increasingly significant issue in the next decade. This will be an outgrowth of a more skeptical society after the banking misdeeds and Great Recession of 2008; increasing reports of corporate cyber attacks; and ever-increasing reliance on non-human commerce (automation and robots).

Consequently, trusting in senior management, customers, vendors and other stakeholders will take center stage. The growth of social media further puts ever-growing pressure on companies to ensure that they “do the right thing.”

Adding to the mix are anti-bullying, gender pay parity and other legislation in a growing number of states. They’re just two examples of how companies can increasingly become unwitting legal targets in the future, spiking legal and insurance costs. Taking proactive steps to create an emotionally intelligent and Trusted Workplace culture isn’t just good PR; it’s become integral to corporate competitiveness, innovation, performance and even economic survival.

According to a 1/16 corporate study by PwC, “Over half the CEOs surveyed (55%) are concerned about the lack of trust in business today – compared with 37% just three years ago. The Edelman Trust Barometer 2015 also showed that public levels of trust in business in 2015 had declined to the lowest level since 2008 – and that CEOs were seen as among the least credible sources of information.”

The study also noted the growth of brands that support a commitment to sustainability, further underscoring the growing desire to associate with companies that exude integrity.

A humanized, trusted workplace ensures that a company is a better employer, business partner and investment, amid an increasingly skeptical and automated society. As workplace culture has impacted a company’s ability to literally survive, Lynn is able to apply the relevance of these trends to your enhanced corporate performance.

A trusted workplace will, among many other benefits, can help you:

  • Attract and keep the industry’s best talent
  • Tap the full potential of your workforce
  • Master your ability to invigorate your team
  • Turn around high turnover
  • Enhance existing and prospective partnerships with customers, stakeholders and vendors
  • Reduce insurance and litigation costs (seminar features employment lawyer partner)
