Corporate Excellence: Approaching the Future 2023

The 8th report, Approaching the Future 2023, was produced by Corporate Excellence – Centre for Reputation Leadership in collaboration with CANVAS Sustainable Strategies & the Global Alliance for Public Relations and Communication Management. It is based on responses from more than 1,200 professionals from 53 countries and looks at the top ten trends in reputation and intangibles management that are currently shaping the corporate agenda. This year’s results reflect the evolving and significant role of companies as social, responsible and transformative actors in the environments in which they operate. The fact that more than 40% of the responses came from senior executives shows that managing intangibles is now firmly on management’s agenda as an essential aspect of the business model of the future.
