I need some feedback from all of you with regards to a paper on organisational trust that I am doing.
The topic is "Evolution of Fostering Trust in Organisations"
The geist of the paper will be on how how methods of fostering trust in organisations have evolved and whether the internet has changed the face of trust in organisations..esp with the proliferation of .com companies where physical contact among colleagues are not always possible or necessary.
Would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to fill out the survey and either post it in the forum or email me @ [email protected]
If you wish to remain anonymous..you can leave the name part blank. but i would still need your company and postions.
Thank you so much for your time.....
