Trust emerging as a key business differentiator

ABN Resource team recently attended Kline’s ‘Impact of COVID-19 on the Global Lubricants and Basestock Markets’ webinar. One of the topics was the role trust plays as a business differentiator. This seems to be a consistent trend within the Lubricants industry.

From the conversation we’ve had with our customers, it is clear that trust is important in business as a whole, becoming even more valuable since the pandemic outbreak. Our customers want to do business with people that do what they say and deliver it with excellence. This was great to hear because trust is one of the 4 key values that ABN Resource operate by. 

What trust means to us?

At ABN Resource we believe that trust is a key foundation of good relationships with our customers, and we are willing to earn it through your experience with us. We keep our promises, and we always strive to ensure your experience is positive and affirmative. When handling confidential hiring processes for key leadership roles having a partner you can trust is critical to good result delivery.

Every month we try to offer you a source of information on the topics that matter. In June we offered answers to what great leadership really looks like. We also, explored the topic of the diversity and inclusion within the oil industry and shared top tips on cultivating the ‘growth mindset’ in your workplace, and more.
