Corporate Leaders Step Up As Political Leaders Lag Behind

The coronavirus pandemic has shaken the foundations of American life and exposed political and institutional weaknesses. But U.S. business leaders have stepped up just when Americans need it most – and surprisingly, trust in companies and corporate leaders has grown.

At the peak of the pandemic last month, 61% of the population working across a number of industries said they had increased trust in their employer compared to pre-pandemic, with 36% saying the trust of their organization had risen significantly, according to the second Shifting Expectations Survey conducted by FTI Consulting.

This stands in stark contrast to widespread sentiment among Americans that political leadership has been erratic and significantly ineffective in response to the various challenges facing the country today.
