A person’s reputation is his or her most valuable asset. This is also true of corporations. As author Andrew Griffin explains, a corporation’s reputation is the result of how it manages social responsibility, crises and issues. Griffin notes that more corporations now acknowledge the importance of reputation, but few turn that awareness into anything tangible. Yet, unfortunately, when a firm’s reputation goes bad, it is nearly impossible to fix.
