Reputation Research

Through our partnership with the Reputation Institute, we offer reporting and advice concerning your company's reputation based on the global Reputation Quotient Project. By combining RQ results with our own expertise and other measures, the Corporate Communication Centre can offer you unique knowledge in the field of reputation management.

Reputation Institute has been studying the dynamics of Reputation for more than 10 years. Research shows that a well-regarded company is more likely to:

  • be liked;
  • be trusted;
  • be admired;
  • and esteemed.

 Reputation is built on 7 pillars from which a company can create a strategic platform for communicating with its stakeholders on the most relevant key performance indicators.
