“The Trust Meltdown”

Since the 1990s, people have become wary of a range of institutions – especially in the corporate sector. Some call this trend the trust meltdown. In this atmosphere, social media supply individual consumers with enormous power. One person online can demolish a reputation that took an organization many years to build. When people lose faith in a company, they stop being customers and tell their friends to stop as well.

    Employees are the backbone on any organization and they are in touch with stakeholders ...Good leaders must give his staff a chance and listen to their issues ....motivate them ...and look forward to consider what they are saying .....sometimes they repeat what costumers verbally says.
