Reputation and Relationships

JCMR Research Banner 08 Dec20

The Centre allows organizations to strengthen the key drivers of successful stakeholder relationships, achieving goals such as customer retention, pro-social outcomes and community impacts. This has helped organizations like Unilever to develop and communicate its Sustainable Living Plan, helped John Lewis with staff and employee happiness work and has helped multiple organizations in the financial service sector to better stakeholder relations.

In 2022, the Centre launched the North-South Impact Partnership which connects African not-for-profit organizations with the Henley Alumni Network.

In 2023, the Centre launched its African sister Centre, the John Madejski Centre for Reputation Africa, marking 15 years history of working with the not-for-profit sector.

From 2025-2030, the Centre is committed to developing new tools to measure reputation and the strength of relationships in less researched areas, such as the not-for-profit sector and the African context, as well as continuing to assist commercial organizations such as McDonalds improving healthy eating choices, and SAP to improve their partner-customer relationships.
