aQity Research is Selected for the Community Partnership Survey in Lake Bluff, IL.
This research is being co-sponsored by the Village of Lake Bluff, the Lake Bluff Elementary School District 65, and the Lake Bluff Park District. This cooperative effort among the three agencies is a unique approach for community surveys, and represents the strong mutual relationships that these agencies share.
The survey includes customized questions and topics to help inform key decisions on specific issues facing each agency. In addition, Lake Bluff residents will provide feedback on the value that each agency represents, and their preferred channels of communication on issues and decisions.
Co-sponsoring one survey will provide the detailed insights that each agency seeks in order to deliver better services and value to residents in an efficient and cost-effective manner. And this model is getting attention, as aQity Research is talking to another community interested in this approach for their upcoming needs assessments.
Our Team Continues to Grow as New Clients Partner with aQity Research.
We have been in a big hiring mode of late, especially adding new executive interviewers to the aQity team.
This is a reflection of the unique capabilities that we offer with our in-house data collection team, who continue to exceed expectations with high response rates, in-depth insights, and the ability to engage hard-to-reach respondents.
The recent growth surge includes new and expanded win-loss programs and strategic in-depth interviewing with financial advisors and portfolio managers for several asset management firms. In addition, we are recruiting and conducting dozens of focus groups, not only for asset management firms but also for government agencies and not-for-profits.
We are thrilled that our qualitative in-depth-interviewing (IDI) and focus group capabilities are getting the same level of recognition as our customized quantitative approach and solutions.
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.
