Fostering employee trust is a critical component of any stakeholder governance framework focused on sustainable long-term business success. Increasing digitalization of workplace functions and emerging technologies require organizations fully to understand the risks and opportunities that this brings, particularly in relation to employee trust. We have recently published the sixth board paper in the Trust Continuum series: Leveraging Technology to Promote Employee Trust. This report examines the inherent value of employee trust to businesses, risks around emerging workplace technologies, key tenets around responsible technology deployment, and how organizations can leverage technology as a vehicle for building trust.
