Experts agree that trust reigns as one of the most important elements of a synergistic, harmonious and efficient workplace. Experts also agree that trust starts with you and with management. Trust and trustworthiness exist when top management sets and follows the example.
High trust organizations tend to outperform low-trust ones. It is healthy when business leaders realize that they must not only get results but do so with integrity, not just once, but in every instance.

Trust in the workplace benefits everyone
Remember that trust is earned, and broken trust is a betrayal. Minor betrayals such as gossiping or blaming erode trust over time and can accumulate into a big problem that negatively impacts commitment, confidence and energy.
It pays to hold yourself and others accountable. If a member of your team promises much but delivers nothing, the failure reflects on you. And once trust is broken, it can be a hard row to hoe to restore it. Besides, it leaves behind a stigma that can bite, especially when you may be looking for a new job.
