NEW YORK, January 19. 2022 /3BLMedia/ - The global leader in measuring organizational trust, Trust Across America, has honored Mark Donohue, Founder and Executive Chairman of LifeGuides, with the respected “Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trust” award. This award was previously given to Donohue in 2010, while he was Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Babson College. The selection committee has now honored Donohue again - for his leadership in founding LifeGuides along with his principled business practices. Of note, today’s public announcement of the 2020 award was delayed due to COVID complexities.

The awards program, now in its 12th year, celebrates professionals who are transforming the way organizations incorporate trust as an intentional business strategy. This award partly honors the role of LifeGuides in catalyzing deeper levels of trust, empathy, wisdom and human-connection within its corporate clients.

The award is meant to recognize the efforts of those whose work contributes to elevating societal trust. The honorees come from the broadest range of roles, with functional focus including: education and training, compliance and ethics, governance, corporate social responsibility, empathetic leadership, product innovation, human resources management and even geo-politics. Honorees are selected by a panel of judges based on their rigor and scalable impact - not their popularity.

Barbara Brooks Kimmel, CEO of Trust Across America and Trust Around the World shared that: "LifeGuides represents one of many innovations working to enhance trust, empathy and caring in workforces. The leaders of Trust Across America are excited to see the ‘entrepreneurial ecosystem’ rising to support the important needs for business to evolve."

In recognizing Donohue for the second time, Trust Across America stated that Mark is: “one of the leading American pioneers in impact enterprise, Conscious Capitalism, Cleantech and triple-bottom-line economics.”

Mark Donohue, Founder of LifeGuides, shared: “It is such a sweet honor to receive this award for a second time. This award is a celebration of those who measure success - not by pure financial profit, but by the full impact that we have on humanity and nature. It is my prayer that this award brings more attention to the impactful and amazing work of our team at LifeGuides.”
