Corporate Reputation

The Colmar Brunton Corporate Reputation Index is an annual study using the globally validated RepZ framework for measuring reputation. Launched in 2015, it is the most comprehensive measure of how New Zealand’s Top 50 corporates by revenue (drawn from Deloittes Top 200) are performing in this market. The Index covers corporates across 17 categories and looks at how they are balancing the harder and softer elements of reputation strength to deliver differentiating and sustainable competitive advantage.

Public Sector Reputation

In 2016 we launched the Public Sector Reputation Index. This was in response to an increasing demand from our public sector clients to understand how they are perceived. The Public Sector Reputation Index delves into the sources of reputation and the performance of individual public sector agencies.
