The Importance of Trust

One of the more interesting of the articles that we have had on the Evangelical Portal, as a part of the Faith@Work Consultation, was William Miller’s first meditation on trust and its significance in the workplace.  He found his way to the heart of this scholar of philosophy and religion by posing a question through Socrates and finding an answer through Jesus, or specifically through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount.

Trust, of course, is a rare and valuable commodity, and without it the workplace dissolves into suspicion, dissension and turf wars.  Trust also counts for much between companies; just as employee A will not consent to work with employee B unless there is a foundation of trust, company A requires trust in company B in order to form a true partnership.  Read more with William Miller’s second entry in the series.
