2015 Edelman Trust Barometer - Global Results

215,182 views

Published on

The 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer is the firm’s 15th annual trust and credibility survey. The survey was powered by research firm Edelman Berland and consisted of 20-minute online interviews conducted on October 13th – November 24th, 2014. The 2015 Edelman Trust Barometer online survey sampled 27,000 general population respondents with an oversample of 6,000 informed publics ages 25-64 across 27 markets. All informed publics met the following criteria: college-educated; household income in the top quartile for their age in their country; read or watch business/news media at least several times a week; follow public policy issues in the news at least several times a week.

For more information, visit http://www.edelman.com/trust2015

February 12, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report incorrectly labeled the data on slide 11 as being about information “created by each author on social networking sites, content sharing sites and online-only information sources.” The data is not about trust in authors but trust in sources, and the label has been updated.

February 5, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report stated in a headline on slide 20 that an “expert” and "a person like yourself" are twice as credible as a CEO - they are more credible by at least 20 percentage points; a Jeff Bezos quote on slide 23 misused “business" for “society."

January 28, 2015 Correction: A previous version of this report had reversed the labeling of business and government on slide 46 in the appendix.

  39. 39 TOWARDS TRUSTED INNOVATION A REQUIRED SET OF ACTIONS BehaveSolve Engage Fundamentally, business must conduct itself with new rigor and self-awareness. A commitment to robust relationships, transparency and consistency in reporting, active listening to stakeholders’ concerns and a willingness to modify products and services is required. Ultimately this is an action of leadership, culture and conduct. Business must continue to apply its unparalleled perspective and skill to the world’s greatest problems. Enterprise must bring ideas and products to market that yield benefit, while ensuring the public sees the connection between new developments and societal benefit. Innovative product and service solutions should be recognized by stakeholders as more than profit-drivers. Business must adopt a new framework rooted in facilitating dialogue, sharing information and fostering collaboration. Realizing that new developments do not speak for themselves, enterprises must actively engage a broad range of stakeholders to facilitate greater understanding through stories that reach and touch their audiences. Business must explain benefits completely, elucidate the technology behind the innovations and communicate its ethical practices in bringing those discoveries to market. A business that does this well is one that invites partnership, encouraged feedback and interaction and listens openly.
