A damaged reputation quite often leads to huge financial and business damages. Loss of trust from customers, employees, investors, regulators, auditors, business partners and other stakeholders often takes years to recover. Mitigating reputational risk means sound judgment and excellent leadership. It is not enough to comply with the minimum applicable laws and regulations. As many examples show, we must live up to society’s expectations, or face the risks…. Navigating this is “ethical risk management”: analytically developing sound judgment, for which nobody has to hide. This reduces reputational risk in the short and long term.
