At its core, reputation is an emotional impulse that emerges as feelings of admiration, respect, trust and a good impression of the company. It is not to be confused with corporate responsibility, as it sometimes is.

Fernando Prado Abuín, in his article in states that "corporate reputation and corporate social responsibility are different, but complementary, things. Understand correctly what they are, how they relate to and feed into each other, to what extent they depend on each other and how the way corporate communication builds a bridge between the two concepts is not just a purely academic matter. It is also and above all, a basic requirement for understanding the full complexity of the change of paradigm in business management that we call "Economy of Reputation ".

As with people, "The paradox of a reputation is that perceptions of it may not correspond, for better or for worse, with the reality of the company."
