We are very pleased to announce that IFF Research has been nominated in two categories at the upcoming MRS Operations Awards, Best Data Collection Online and Best Data Collection Telephone. Our operations team are the heart of our company and we are especially proud to have been recognised in the area of data collection.
Exceptional data is essential for influencing decisions relating to a client’s strategy, orientation and focus. The data collection awards seek to recognise teams whose excellence at collecting data has delivered outstanding results for the research process and IFF is nominated in both the telephone and online categories.
Best Data Collection – Online
IFF has been nominated for work on the Annual Survey of Goods and Services for the Office of National Statistics. The survey responds to an independent review of UK economic statistics conducted by Sir Charles Bean in March 2016, which highlighted insufficient measurement of the UK service economy. It informs the Services Producer Prices Index (SPPI) and is used by National Accounts in their calculation of gross domestic product (GDP) so accuracy, a clear user journey and excellent respondent support were essential.
Best Data Collection – Telephone
IFF has been chosen as a finalist in this category for work on the Employer Skills Survey (ESS), one of the largest B2B survey’s in the world with just under 90,000 employer interviews. IFF demonstrated innovation in approach, quality in data collection and management for a survey that had a significant impact on the employment landscape.
With an unprecedented sample size this body of work acts as a shining example of the scale and quality of IFF’s telephone research operation. The findings from this research offer exclusive insight into the skills needs of employers providing robust analytical power at a local, sectoral and occupational level.
Winners of the MRS operations awards, otherwise known as the Oppies, will be announced in September 2018 and we can’t wait to join the industry celebrations. Follow the link for further details MRS Operations Awards 2018
