In an aim to gain practical insights on employer trust dimensions, Who Group has embarked on a joint study using a unique psychological model, HuTrust®, to investigate Australian employees’ trust profiles. Findings indicate that despite Australia having a high performing economy in comparison to other countries, employers scored a relatively low trust score. In addition, research analysis indicates that the key ingredient that drives employee engagement and performance is trust.
This is the first study to really examine trust in employees as a benchmark. The survey utilised is based on HuTrust® which is a robust and valid psychological tool for measuring trust and has previously been utilised to research target populations in various sectors and countries, including Canada, Singapore and Australia.
Who Group has teamed up with mext consulting to embark on this joint study that surveyed employees across Australia covering a wide range of industries from SMEs to large corporations, diverse age groups and genders. The aim is to identify employees trust profiles in relation to their employer. The profile includes the level of trust employees have for their employer; the areas in which they trust or do not trust their employer according to the HuTrust® model; how engaged employees are; and how much more productive they would be if they trusted their employer.
