Best Data Collection Winner.

The following project was selected as the ‘Best Data Collection – Interviewer Administered’ winner at the MRS Operations Awards 2021.

Essex County Council needed to know how better to support the Essex business community in challenging times. Following a tender process, Mackman Research was commissioned by Essex County Council to conduct a time-sensitive and critical business support survey during the early stages of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020. The research gathered would help to shape Essex County Council’s business support and economic growth strategy, helping its businesses to survive and recover from the effects of the pandemic.
