The Benefits of Dealing with a Family-Owned Business
Edelman has been studying how much we trust family businesses since 2013. Recently, Justin Blake, of Edelman, shared the results from the Edelman Trust Barometer, which studies the level of trust people have in various institutions – including government, media, nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) and business – with FFI Practitioner.
“Family businesses are highly trusted – in fact, they are the most trusted form of business globally,” he said. “That may seem a surprising fact considering that only 56 percent of the general population trust business overall.” The survey found that 69 percent of the population trusted family-owned businesses. That high level of trust is nothing new, Blake says. In fact, he says the support has remained pretty consistent since 2013.
And that trust is not a fluke! Family businesses, have earned that trust in a number of ways.
