WHY IS TRUST CRITICAL FOR ORGANISATIONAL SUCCESS

Studies have shown that employees in high trust cultures report:

74% less stress, 106% more energy, 50% more productivity, 60 % more joy

70% more purpose and 50% more retention.

HOW DOES TRUST BRING ABOUT THESE OUTCOMES ?

Trust is a brain chemical called Oxytocin, which switches on Trust.

Oxytocin is the biological basis for The Golden Rule: If you treat me well, my brain will synthesize Oxytocin and this will motivate me to reciprocate.  In this way, the brain’s production of Oxytocin, and its effects on the central and peripheral nervous systems, motivate voluntary cooperation.

Following the release of Oxytocin, the self-other boundary is reduced in proposition to the Oxytocin released and colleagues feel and act as part of the same team.

In this way trust and creating a culture of trust is key to building individual/team, employee engement and organisational performance.
