This briefing explains how — at a time when declining trust in business is accelerating — The Dalton Company Ltd. has made trust a cornerstone of its business.
A decade ago, the Dalton Company of Toronto began a significant transition from a family-run operation to a professionally managed business. The goal was to ensure that, in an uncertain climate, Dalton would not only survive, but expand. As part of the transition, Dalton’s leadership embarked on a process to build on the firm’s foundation of trust. Today, Dalton has put in place systems and processes that have strengthened its relationships with its customers, suppliers, and employees—and have made the company a model for how to incorporate trust throughout your business.
