Trust Part 2: Your Biggest Competitive Differentiator For Attracting and Retaining Top Talent
Absolutely! Frameworks like SOC 2 specifically address the foundations of trust. For example, the first COSO principle in SOC 2 is to ‘demonstrate a commitment to integrity and ethical values.’ A commitment to DEI isn’t enough on its own to empower and build trust with employees.
