Find out where your organization and your brand stand with the public and key stakeholders. A reputation study will not only determine the areas in which your organization is doing well or needs improvement, but also which of those areas are most closely tied to your overall reputation.
Looking inward can be just as important as looking outward. Find out what your employees, members, or stakeholders think about your organization, so you can increase engagement, morale, and loyalty. Whether it is ongoing tracking of engagement or as part of change management, learning where people stand is the first step in bringing them on-side.
Approach and Methods
When you need a truly representative snapshot of public opinion, the best way is through computer-assisted telephone interviews. Random samples are generated by calling both mobile numbers and landlines.
Online research can be an efficient and cost-effective way to reach certain segments of the population or when you’re interested in getting people to respond to visual materials.
Surveys aim to find out “what” people think. Focus group aim to learn “why” people think that way. For the client who wants to explore an issue in-depth, focus groups can be a useful tool.
Sometimes a topic can be too complicated, too sensitive, or to logistically difficult to study in a survey or focus group. In these cases, the best way to gather data is through one-on-one interviews.
