about our employer brand research

Respondents are employees and job-seekers between the ages of 18-65. There is a slight bias towards respondents under 40 because the survey’s main target audience is potential employees.

what makes it different? 

Unlike similar surveys, we do not invite human resources, staff members or experts to take part in the survey, ensuring the results of the survey are as objective as possible.

what is measured?

Respondents are asked to identify companies they recognize. They then evaluate companies they recognize on 10 factors including salary & benefits, work atmosphere, and job content.
