Our founding, in 2001, was based on a belief that exceptional people committed to rigorous research can improve the lives of real people. This is still true today, even as we have grown to a professional staff of nearly 400 individuals located in seven offices across the world.

When we assemble a team, we bring together experts from diverse backgrounds and perspectives to consider a challenge, and as a result, our solutions are holistic, and highly responsive to our clients’ changing needs.

We are proud that the insights, surveys, and technology that we provide help our clients make a meaningful, real world impact – this is our mission.
