People across the world are viewing the credibility of CEOs with increasing scepticism, accoring to a new report from Edelman. It found that trust in business, institutions, governments and NGOs has evaporated in most countries. Chief executives in particular are suffering a serious dent in their credibility with only 37 percent of people in 28 countries rating them as being extremely or very credible in 2017. That's a 12 percentage point reduction on 2016.
