GRBN Global trust survey to explore the impact of COVID-19

GRBN News: The Global Research Business Network (GRBN) is partnering with ten national research associations from across the globe, as well as 13 corporate partners, to update the GRBN Global Trust Survey which was last conducted in 2018.

The research measures the level of public trust in research companies compared with a range of other organisations and sectors.  This year, it will provide valuable insight into how trust in the market and social research sector, alongside others including government and media, has been affected by the COVID-19 health and economic emergency.

Fieldwork will take place at the end of April and the results published in June.

This GBRN Global Trust Survey is just one of the ways that the international research community is working together to navigate the current crisis.  From joint online training and education programmes, to sharing best practice and professional-standards expertise, associations within GRBN are putting collaboration at the heart of their strategy to support their members and partners during this period.

Andrew Cannon, Executive Director at The Global Research Business Network, comments: “This survey and its findings will be the result of a collective global effort and will provide important insight into how perceptions of the research sector have changed since 2018 and the impact of COVID-19 specifically. International cooperation is more important than ever, and we thank all of the associations and commercial partners who have come together to make it happen.”

Elissa Molloy CEO of AMSRS, comments: “The health and wellbeing of our local and global research community is top of mind for us at present as we navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. The AMSRS values this opportunity to once again collaborate with our international association partners through GRBN in the Global Trust Survey. It provides us with an opportunity to reflect on what we do, and insights gained from the survey will be important in ensuring the industry recovers to move forward with strength and renewed purpose. We sincerely thank GRBN for their support of the global research community.”

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our national association and corporate partners without whose participation and support this initiative would not be possible.
