Building and Understanding Trust with Kris Lance

By Kelly Barner | August 30, 2023

New research from MIT shows that trusting employees are 260% more motivated to work, have 41% lower rates of absenteeism, and are 50% less likely to look for another job. But… one in four workers do not trust their employer. Trust is the easiest thing in the world to lose and the hardest to get back – and it plays an important role in every type of relationship.

In this episode of The Sourcing Hero podcast, Host Kelly Barner welcomes back Kris Lance, Senior Director at Una, for a recurring monthly conversation about current news stories. Kris has experience in multiple industries and has his finger on the pulse of the trends and topics that procurement, sourcing, and supply chain professionals need to be aware of.


In this conversation, Kris and Kelly discuss the topic of trust from a number of perspectives:

  • Why an employee might (or might not) trust their employer
  • What the most trusted brands in America have in common in 2023
  • How to foster trust in supplier relationships through shared cultural values
