Sheppard Moscow's Perspective: The Importance of Trust

At Sheppard Moscow, we work with our clients to optimise organisational effectiveness and business success. 

In partnering with our clients over the past 50 years, we’ve noticed that Trust is a common underlying theme that is holding organisations back. Trust in leaders; trust within team;trust between teams; and how to win and maintain the trust of customers and other stakeholders.

Can organisational benefits really be generated by creating more trust? We believe so. Research has shown that improvements in the human system typically manifest in terms of improved organisational performance e.g. faster execution, greater innovation, responsiveness to change (commonly referred to as agility), higher employee engagement, better customer experience, brand favorability and commercial returns (PWC CEO Survey, Edelman Trust Barometer, Collins).
