2014 global risk survey


What’s your company’s reputation worth? If the more than 300 business executives who participated in our global study on reputation risk are correct, a company’s reputation should be managed like a priceless asset and protected as if it’s a matter of life and death, because from a business and career perspective, that’s exactly what it is. The Reputation@Risk survey report examines what organizations around the world are doing to get in front of this critical issue.

About the survey

The findings in this report are based on a global survey conducted in the spring of 2014 by Forbes Insights, on behalf of Deloitte. It includes insights from more than 300 respondents from the Americas (34 percent), Europe/Middle East/Africa (EMEA) (33 percent), and Asia Pacific (33 percent). Nearly all respondents were C-Level executives (126), board members (13), or specialized risk executives (169). Surveyed companies came from all five major industry sectors (financial services (FS), consumer/industrial products (C&IP), technology/media/telecommunications (TMT), life sciences/health care (LS&HC), and energy/resources (E&R)).

Additional detailed insights were obtained from personal interviews with executives from eight leading companies, with a balanced mix of representation from major industries and global regions.
