The UK government have recently issued precautionary measures to reduce the risk of coronavirus, including self-isolation for anyone displaying any symptoms of coronavirus. We are closely monitoring the situation and we will update our policies and processes accordingly and will update this post on a regular basis as the situation develops.
Firstly, we should say that the safety of our staff, our clients and the general public are our priority. Our team are working around the clock to ensure all projects are carried out in full, whilst maintaining the utmost precautionary methods to ensure the safety of all.
As a full service market research agency, we offer a variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods to support your needs. However, currently we have decided to focus our methods on both online and telephone research– avoiding face to face contact wherever possible. Whilst this will limit some of the projects we can take on, in reality, our range of specialist online techniques should allow to tackle most business and research issues you might have.
To ensure our projects continue to run as smoothly as possible, we are currently implementing the following steps:
- Our team will continue to be working on current and new projects. However, we are implementing solutions to suit all parties, including; restricting business travel as much as possible and the use of virtual meetings via Microsoft Teams, Join.me or any other preferred application you might have.
- We are reducing the number of staff working in the office across our sites and providing them with the opportunity of homeworking. Our team will continue to be available via email or telephone to ensure business as usual.
Interested in conducting focus groups but worried the current situation may affect the results?
Whilst government measures include avoiding crowds and gatherings, face to face focus groups may not appear the most appealing method to respondents from first glance but there are many alternative and solutions to this. This doesn’t mean focus groups can’t be conducted, we can offer online qualitative solutions including online focus groups and In-depth interviews, giving you the insights and results you intended without the need for direct contact.
Unsure about whether you will benefit from market research in light of current events?
Whilst we can’t guarantee what course the situation will take, we can guarantee that we will continue to provide you with top quality results that will benefit your business and help you reach all business goals. We have developed our own set of tools that combine traditional research methods with new innovative ways of thinking. If you are looking to conduct a specific type of research or want to know what options are available to you and your business and how we can maximise the results, please contact our team via the form below.
As we wait for further developments from the Government, we will continue to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our employees and the smooth running of our projects from start to finish.
