Trust Across America Names 2017 Top Thought Leaders in Trust
CHESTER, NEW JERSEY, January 23, 2017. Trust Across America-Trust Around the World (TAA-TAW), global leaders in organizational trust honors its 2017 Top Thought Leaders Trust. The awards program, now in its 7th year, celebrates professionals who are transforming the way organizations do business.
While there are a growing number of global “top” lists and awards, no others address trust, perhaps because the word itself presents a definitional challenge. For eight years TAA-TAW has been working with a team of cross-functional professionals to study, define and quantify organizational trust and trustworthiness.
According to Barbara Kimmel, CEO and Cofounder, “The release of this year’s list coincides with the beginning of the 5th year of the formation of our Trust Alliance, a growing group of global professionals committed to learning together and advancing the cause of organizational trust.
This year we recognize 84 global professionals from a broad functional base including integrity and trust, leadership, culture, compliance and ethics, reputation and risk management, governance, communications, employee engagement, sales and customer service, and data security. Fifteen are current or retired corporate CEOs, eight are writers or members of the media, others are authors and leadership advisors, and some work behind the scenes as teachers, mentors and researchers. We acknowledge and reward all their efforts in elevating societal trust.
This year TAA-TAW is presenting a Lifetime Achievement Award to seven colleagues who have maintained Top Thought Leader status for five years, and their names are being permanently memorialized. We congratulate all of our honorees whose work is shining a spotlight on the importance of trust and providing a roadmap for others to follow. They inspire organizations to look more closely at their higher purpose…to create greater value for, and trust from all of their stakeholders, and understand trust is a “hard currency” with real returns.
The 2017 Lifetime Honorees can be accessed at this link, while complete details including our methodology, judges, award winners, articles and additional trust resources can be found in the Winter 2017 issue of TRUST! Magazine, available at no cost.
