Building Trustworthy Relationships

Understanding your relationship with stakeholders and clients has direct, stellar benefits. 

Trust can be hard to earn and incredibly easy to lose. As senior leaders, we recognize the need to build client trust in our organizations. In today’s industry climate, trust has become increasingly complex to manage and evaluate. Organizations are expected to build trust across growing ecosystems of stakeholders and amid evolving expectations, but what’s the best way to standardize, study, and measure trust? 

Numerous studies confirm that companies outperforming the S&P 500 view trust as a tangible, strategic, and critical asset, given the objective and quantifiable value it can bring to an organization. Trust is complex and is the foundation of all relationships with your employees, stakeholders, and yourself.

Through tireless research and extensive trial and error, we at DuartePino have developed a roadmap to measure client trust.

The DuartePino Trust Program

The first step to managing trust is understanding how it can be defined and measured. Over five years ago, we started researching and understanding trust dynamics through long and open conversations with our clients. In 2020, we officially launched the DuartePino Trust Program anchored in a biannual trust survey that includes all our outsourcing clients. Since launching the program, we have measured and monitored our clients’ trust for three years, demonstrating how competence, dependability, transparency, humanity, and even clear communication can shift your business goals. 
Humbly, we can share that we have maintained above-industry results for the last three years with positive Net Promoter Scores!

Additionally, we maintain high marks in competency, reliability, and integrity for all our clients. Our positive NPS remains higher than the industry average, with most clients high in the Net Promoter quadrant. We are highly trusted to manage marketing strategies, strengthen brand equity, and drive business growth. 

Building Trustworthy Relationships

In conclusion, business leaders should trust their marketing team and possess a direct brand strategy to strengthen equity, foster a positive corporate culture, and drive business growth. In addition, establishing trust and understanding your relationships can help limit risks such as loss. As business leaders, we must invest in understanding, measuring, and managing trust as a critical asset. As a purpose-driven firm, holding it as our core value is imperative.
