Who Do You Trust?

✅ MPs expenses scandal.

✅ Judge rejects Libor rate-rigging anonymity bid.

✅ Horsemeat found in beef products.

✅ Police accused of changing evidence.

Rarely a day goes by without a person, company or a group making the headlines for immoral, unethical or self-centred behaviour. The question being asked by more and more people is “Who can we trust?”

I have noticed this trend growing.  At first, it was the odd occasion and it came as a surprise.  Then one or two more made the headlines and we started to question.  Now people are starting to question everyone and a culture of mistrust of everyone is growing.

Antony Jenkins Barclays Chief Executive once said;

Performance assessment will be based not just on what we deliver but on how we deliver it. We must never again be in a position of rewarding people for making the bank money in a way which is unethical or inconsistent with our values …

So a global organisation coming out in favour of ‘being’ over ‘doing’.  My only question being what is his intention?  Is it just a PR exercise to try and turn the reputation of the Bank or is he genuine in what he is saying?…..only time will tell.

Will we see more examples?

I believe that the internet is the ‘game changer’ in many positive ways, and it may well be the vehicle for engendering transparency, openness, and honesty to become the norm rather than the unusual.

Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.

– Margaret Mead

Have we reached the tipping point?  Have we come to the point where a large number of people will rise up and say enough is enough?

If not us, who?  If not now, when?

–John Kennedy
