We’re a people business.

Finding the right people for your project is what we’re good at. Very good at.

Once again, last night was a great group. Thank you so very much for all your hard work. I am again extremely impressed with all that you did.

Paul Benning, IBI Partners

Thanks for everything, we couldn’t have done it without you, you guys provided more than quarter of the sample from amongst 10 different suppliers!

Soo Bahk, ADP Group

We have been using The Human Network since 2007 to recruit panelists for our consumer tests and we have always found you to be helpful, cooperative and efficient.

David Harris, Sanitarium

Tracey has really represented everything we look for from recruiters. She has been completely fabulous in checking on how things are going and working with us to find solutions whenever anything arises

Hannah Krijnen, Fiftyfive5

The respondents were fantastic last night, thank you so much! Everyone at BrandHook is raving about what a fabulous job you have been doing for us!

Sarah Bugden, Brandhook

Thank you so much Tracey and the team at THN for always going over and above to not only recruit great respondents who are on spec and high contributors in the focus groups, but also help us pressure test our pre-tasks by actually completing the tasks yourselves by going to the store and taking pictures – we are so grateful!

Kim Braganza, Added Value

We were very happy with the recruitment – all the respondents were on spec, happy to join in and engaged. We appreciated the speed with which you recruited the groups and the professionalism of your staff.

Sara-Lee Been, Fifth Dimension

The online communities were buzzing and it has been hard to choose respondents for the next research stage... since they have all been so good!

Belinda Heath, Real Ethnography

Again thanks for all your effort on the job – it was fantastic to work with you and your team… looking forward to the next one!

Ben White, Ruby Cha Cha

Thanks so much for your fantastic service - it’s always great to work with you! The panelists were really cooperative and easy to work with – I don’t think there were any dramas at all. It was a long day but I believe we have gathered some very valuable data.

David Harris, Sanitarium

Just wanted to say that the latest project you recruited (10 groups) was so great - we were super happy with the quality of the respondents and how articulate and on spec they were. Thanks again to you and the team for such great work!

Peter Drinkwater, House of Brand

THN are a great team to work with, I’ve used them over a number of years now and they are my go-to partner for high quality respondents, project managers who go out of their way to make my life easier and guidance/advice on difficult consumer recruits.

Hannah Krijnen, Fiftyfive5

Thank you! 94% recall rate, must be a new world's record!

Jodi, Ipsos

Excellent people in terms of respondents being on spec even to the segment level, being talkative and friendly, doing pre-work, and letting us into their homes. So massive thank you there. It really contributed to the success of the project!

Carina Serreze, Fiftyfive5

I just wanted to say what a delight it has been to work with you on this project. You have been nothing short of fabulous. Every step of the way you have been there, followed up and sorted it out. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Vivian Rowden, Through The Looking Glass

...These were some of the best respondents I've ever had. All were articulate and they all participated well.

David Templeman, MediaCom

Super recruitment again so thanks a lot for all of your efforts. It makes my job easier when we’ve got great people to chat to. The client was very impressed with the quality too.

Claire Martin, Added Value, Shanghai

I know yesterday’s groups were a bit of a challenge for you to recruit, I just wanted to assure you that your efforts didn’t go in vain – they were an absolutely fantastic bunch of women and we got a lot from the group yesterday. Thank you for all of your work, we were really pleased with the recruitment and are looking forward to tonight’s group!

Emily Sak, Pacific Magazines

It was very successful indeed —in no small part due to your amazing recruitment. 100% amazing.

Rigas Harbilas, The Practice

Firstly I have to say a huge thank you for the respondents, they were great and right on spec. Everyone turned up, and in fact because everyone was ten minutes early last night we started and finished early.

Katharine Milner, The Leading Edge

I have to say, I worked with many recruitment companies in different states & regions, in terms of the level of quality and consistency, THN is the best by far! Well done!

Isabel Zhang, Nielsen

I look forward to working with you again soon - you always make things nice and easy for me. It's wonderful passing things to you and feeling assured everything will be done to the correct specs.

Janice Armstrong, Colmar Brunton NZ

Thanks for the respondents today. They were fantastic and exactly what I was looking for.

Rigas Harbilas, The Practice

Just wanted to say thanks for everything on this project. All the respondents were fantastic, despite a rather challenging screener and complex segments. You’ve been flexible, communicative and helpful at every step of the way and this has really reinforced everything I love about working with THN.

Steph Karayannis, Fiftyfive5

Amazing response! I am wrapped!! And so is the client! And the host is incredibly impressed at the engagement on this project... says it is his highest ever, mind you, a very engaging subject!

And the iPad / CLT trial feedback is in!

Despite having grown rather ‘attached’ to our 20-odd laptops (and associated 3 million mice, keyboards, chargers and power cords!) that we use for fieldwork at CLT testing projects across ANZ, we decided it was time for them to settle down (at a local special needs school) and for us to test how well iPads would work in-field and with intercept testing.

Some questions we had about tablet use were:

  • Would all question types be supported (including slider, drag-and-drop etc)?
  • How would the batteries hold up to the rigours of all-day testing (particularly with intercept)?
  • Would the network be able to handle multi-use during large CLT projects?
  • Would our project participants, from a wide-range of backgrounds, feel comfortable using them?

So how well did they work? Let’s just say BRILLIANTLY well! (Which is lucky given that the laptops were very much enjoying their new home…)

Having tested a few iPads alongside their less-sleek laptop counterparts, we found overwhelmingly that our participants were extremely keen to use the 4G iPads and that there were no issues at all using our questionnaire software on them. And while we configured some external keyboards to use with the iPads just in case, we found that most of our nimble-fingered users were happy to use the on-screen version.

So if you’re interested in discussion our (Wifi/4G supported) CLT testing options or intercept interviews, please contact Sue.
