Some points of the study

Aside from a few surprises worth mentioning, such as the return of Google after 2as well as up or down Canadian tire In 5as well as after its leading position in 2021 or even joining YouTube at 9as well as this year, in general, the reputation of the best no longer corresponds to what it used to be. It is in this state of mind Light This year I decided to take a step back in order to compare data ten years apart, that is, for 2013 and 2022. This analysis of the top 50 over these two years reveals some very instructive observations about the major trends in terms of corporate reputation over the last ten years in the country.

First, overall, the 2022 50 Most Admired Companies list shows an average -8 point decline in reputation scores compared to 2013. In 2022, the highest score in Canada is 73 and in 2013 it was 91, a drop of -18. In Quebec, the drop is slightly less noticeable, but just as noticeable, with 84 being the highest reputation score in 2022 and 96 in 2013, a drop of -12 points.

This overall drop in reputation scores among our leaders is then mainly due to a notable drop in % good opinion, regardless of industry. There is a slow destruction of brand equity, even among the upper class.

Finally, as a consequence of these first two observations, Light noted a set of vases communicating between % good opinion and from don’t know enough have opinion, with an average increase of 19% in Canada and 6% in Quebec in 2022 compared to 2013.

There is a loss of brand value in public opinion. In short, if large established companies continue to rank in the top 10, see top 20 or top 50 companies, they do so today with lower reputation scores than they have in the past. The challenge for companies will be to better understand how their customers perceive them and take action to rebuild their relationship,” he said. Christian burkexecutive vice president at Light.
