Trust is a crucial part of every organisation. But what happens when an organisation is faced with a crisis? Will they be able to rebuild trust with their customers, employees and investors?
PwC’s Trust Builders Challenge gives participants an opportunity to immerse themselves in real-life scenarios, be inspired to think outside the box, and sharpen their business acumen to prepare for the working world.
Urban Styles prides themselves as a lifestyle brand that caters to people of different sizes, backgrounds and abilities. And the company makes sure that their marketing and recruitment strategies reflect this ethos. However, when a viral video of a staff mocking a differently-abled employee broke out, Urban Styles suddenly found themselves a subject of discussion on morning radios and in social media boycott groups.
The company acted swiftly: they issued a public apology, reinstating their commitment to diversity and inclusion, and they took stern disciplinary actions against the staff. But in the weeks that follow, several other employees took to social media to expose other managers in the company – even a board member – of exhibiting similar behaviours at work. Sales has dropped 46% from the previous month, and a key investor is pushing for a thorough internal investigation.
Form a group of four, put your thinking caps on and tell us how you would manage the situation with the objective of rebuilding trust with your stakeholders.
Note: Submissions have closed on 13 August 2023.
Eight teams will be shortlisted for the Finals. The teams will present their final solutions to our panel of judges on 23 September 2023.
