Mumbai: World Consulting Research Corporation (WCRC) IDEASFEST 2018 awarded Tarun Rai, CEO of J. Walter Thompson South Asia, as India’s Most Trusted CEO. Hon. Sr. Cabinet Minister Mahadev Jankar and Subhash Ghai presented the award on 27 August 2018.
Commenting on the award, Tarun Rai, CEO of J. Walter Thompson South Asia, said: “An award for Trust is special. Trust has so many dimensions. As a CEO, you need to ‘earn’ the trust of many stakeholders, such as your employees, leadership teams, partners, clients, global company, and shareholders. Trust goes beyond meeting budgeted numbers. It has to do with the culture you build, of creating a conducive work environment, of empowering people, and of investing in their growth. I believe trust is the most important attribute for a leader. If you have your people’s trust, you can move mountains.”
