During his address, Windley sited the 2019 Edelman Trust Barometer to prove the importance of the employee-employer relationship. The survey showed that people trust their employer more than they trust the government or the media. “More and more, people see their employer as the key relationship in their lives,” he continued, “This is a huge responsibility.”

Windley will continue to share his enthusiasm for the people aspect of business with several more speaking engagements this fall, including the Global Workforce Symposium in Boston and the SHRM India Annual Conference in New Delhi.
