Denis Coderre, Guy Laliberté, France Charbonneau, Céline Dion and Pierre Bruneau head the list of personalities who most gained the trust of Quebecers in 2014, according to a survey conducted by the Institute for Trust in Organizations (ICO) in collaboration with IPSOS.
MONTREAL, May 21, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - With the opening today of the International Summit on Trust in Organizations, the ICO is pleased to present the results of a survey conducted in collaboration with IPSOS on the Quebec personalities who made the biggest contribution to building the public's trust in their respective sectors last year.
"Today, there are 10 times more stories of corruption than of behaviours that build trust, and that is truly a shame," states Donald Riendeau, Chief Executive Officer of the ICO. "We felt it was important to use this survey to identify and recognize the personalities who help strengthen trust, because it is so vital to our society. We also made it the basis for the title of this year's Summit: Becoming trust-building leaders."
The Web omnibus survey of 500 respondents, representative of the Quebec population, was conducted by IPSOS between April 15 and 20, 2015. For each category, respondents were asked to choose one personality among a choice of 20 in answering the following question: "As you think back to 2014, who among the following personalities would you say made the biggest contribution to improving the public's trust in his or her sector of activity?"
