aQity Research Presents Final Economic Data at the 2017 IAPD/IPRA Conference.
Jeff Andreasen will present the findings from aQity Research’s analysis of 2016 employment and revenue data collected statewide from Illinois park districts, forest preserve/conservation districts, and special recreation associations.
This research was sponsored by the Illinois Association of Park Districts and will be presented to the IAPD’s Research Council at the IAPD/IPRA Conference in Chicago this month. This groundbreaking research quantifies the benefits these agencies provide to their communities and throughout the state as significant jobs creators. Likewise, the study identified the level of self-sustaining revenues that these agencies generate, thereby reducing burden on taxpayers.
In addition to the statewide findings, participating agencies received customized reports on their employment and revenue impact in their community, with regional and statewide benchmarks for comparison. Our analysis provides these agencies with compelling data that convey their value and importance to their community.
aQity enjoys perfect Net Promoter Scores for 2016!
Based on client satisfaction results from over a dozen clients (so far) in 2016, aQity Research has earned a Net Promoter Score (NPS) of +100!
The NPS is based on responses to a question asking the likelihood of recommending aQity to associates or peers, using a scale from “0” (not at all likely to recommend) through “10” (extremely likely). The net score is the percent of “Promoters” (those giving scores of 9 or 10) less the percent of “Detractors” (scores of 6 or lower).
All of our clients gave us ratings of 9 or 10, meaning they are all “Promoters” and therefore very likely to recommend us in the future. We greatly appreciate this positive feedback and strongly value our client partnerships, and we are committed to earn each client’s loyalty with every future partnership.
aQity Welcomes Two More Members to Its Team!
As aQity Research grows, so does our research team.
In September, Matt Jenetopulos joined as a full-time research analyst to provide project management support. He has an MBA in Marketing and a Certificate in Business Data Analytics from Loyola University-Chicago’s Quinlan School of Business, and a BA in Music Management from the University of Hartford.
aQity also recently hired Joanna Surma as a full-time research analyst to provide data and project support across our financial services and public agency studies. Joanna recently received her MA in Political Science from Loyola University in Chicago, and also holds BA degrees in International Studies, History and Political Science (likewise from Loyola).
Both Matt and Joanna have hit the ground running and are already contributing ideas that benefit our clients. We are very excited to have them part of our team.
