When a promise is kept, trust is earned.
When a promise is broken, trust suffers.
A person’s behavior helps you answer accountability’s most essential question: Can I count on you? It’s a simple concept. If you have to think about whether or not you trust someone, the answer is probably “no.”
Who do you consider the most accountable organization or person in 2015? The least?
Voting opens today for the second annual Bustin & Co. accountability survey.
Every year, politicians lie, bureaucrats everywhere let us down, and corporate executives fail to keep their promises. So there’s no shortage of bad examples to choose from.

Vote for one of five companies, organizations or individuals who held themselves accountable to making tough, smart decisions in 2015.
You can also vote for one of the five companies, organizations or individuals who could not be counted on to step up when it mattered most.
