Employees and consumers are gaining greater influence over corporations' behavior thanks to a surge in e-commerce and social sharing, according to Sodexo's 2015 Workplace Trends Report, released today. A new form of public accountability, dubbed "Rateocracy," is putting unprecedented pressure on companies to act transparently, highlighting one of the major shifts in how the workplace is changing in response to technology and cultural expectations.
The report provides an in-depth analysis of nine notable implications accompanying this new era of Rateocracy, including the need for constant real-time reputation management and the new role of the CEO, which is to communicate an honest and aspirational vision that connects employees and consumers. Transparency is particularly important in addressing public relations challenges that are increasingly being amplified through social channels.
