We’re a people business.

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

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

We are so happy with the amazing job Jacqui and Claire did recruiting so many groups, to such a high standard! We really appreciate you keeping us updated throughout the process, and for always striving for great participants, we really do notice the difference (as do our clients) and it makes our job so much easier.

Jac Doyle, Harvest Insights

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

Jodi, Ipsos

A huge thank you for all your help with the groups. Awesome job on the recruitment (particularly in Brisbane where we had a great creative bunch of brains!) All managed effortlessly by yourselves – and making our lives immensely easier.

Katie Lucas, Fiftyfive5

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

Last night's group was outstanding. The clients (all 6 of them!) were very impressed with the variety of people and how articulate and on task they were.

Susan Spanitz, InnoSense Consulting

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

This project ran like clockwork and I really appreciated all the effort that went in to finding the right respondents and quickly responding to changes as they popped up. Also, thanks too for proactive communication throughout the project. The Human Network team always make me feel in the loop and up-to-date with where things are at. Love your work!

Bryony Ranford, brandtonic

Tracey has been an absolute delight to work with. I know that she's completely on top of the project through her prompt, concise & professional communication and on top just a lovely person. I can't speak highly enough.

Kate McQuilkin, Immerse Strategy

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

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

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

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

All went really well as usual thanks – clients were very happy with the ‘spot on’ participants!

Lana Bruskina, 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

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

A HUGE thank you for last night, some really fantastic respondents & incredibly diverse group of women. Thanks so much for making last night such a great session & our lives that bit easier.

Katie Lucas, The Lab Insight & Strategy

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

I was very happy with how things went for this project. Tracey did a great job! This recruit was a bit out of the ordinary and it was handled really well. Tracey was also really great at keeping on top of the respondents throughout the running of the online community, we had a 100% completion rate which is fantastic. No complaints with how it went, would definitely use THN again!

Ellie Burton, Ruby Cha Cha

The project went really well overall! I always enjoy working with you guys and think the quality of your respondents are fantastic.

Steph Karayannis, Fiftyfive5

I thought you did a good job of recruiting to spec in a short time-frame; and given we managed to get the vast majority of people to carry out their Pinterest boards too, we were very pleased.

Ergo Strategy, Ed Elias

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

Rigas Harbilas, The Practice

We could not have been more pleased. All the respondents were great, really engaged and open in the sessions. Our client was blown away with the groups and the level of detail we were able to get. Working with Claire on this was fantastic. Such a smooth process, I was kept up to date all the way through and was made to feel confident from the start. Nothing I could improve on at all.

Bethan Hockey, Kantar Added Value

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, Kantar Added Value

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

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

Kathryn did a great job taking the brief and filling the groups without any issue. She also did a great job collecting the homework and sending it to me in a nice organised format and provided frequent and clear updates which is much appreciated.

Lauren Gibbs, FiftyFive5

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

All the work prior to Christmas went really well. As always the team were highly organised and were a pleasure to work with. The recruit was excellent even when it was so close to Christmas. Thanks again to the team, I always know the project is safe hands with them!

Kate McQuilkin, Immerse Insight & Strategy

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!

Gabrielle Zerafa, Nielsen

Overall, it was great working with THN and I really appreciated the effort and consideration that went in to recruit the right participants for our project.

2 February 2018

You are a foster parent!

You probably read on our 2017 THN Christmas card that in lieu of client gifts THN supports two charity organisations per year to give thanks for the work we have been fortunate enough to be involved in and give something back to the world in which we live.

Again in 2018, one of the charities we are happily supporting is Orangutan Foundation International Australia (OFI Australia), an organisation that supports orangutan and forest conservation efforts in Borneo, Indonesia.

Orangutan populations in the wild are in severe decline and during the past decade have decreased by close to 50%. They are primarily threatened by human activities (much of it illegal) and development that causes the loss and degradation of their forest habitat.

This means that without drastic intervention orangutans may be extinct in the wild within the next few decades.

In order to support the orangutans in their care, OFI need to ensure they have a safe place to recover, grow and live, which isn’t cheap!

Thanks to their generous supporters, OFI Australia has now raised over $1 Million dollars – an amazing effort! Funds are used to support two main campaigns – caring for over 330 orangutans in the Care Centre providing them with food, shelter, love and the skills they will need when they are old enough to be released back in the wild, and purchasing and protecting land to ensure they have a safe home when they are eventually released.

So, that’s where individual people and companies such as THN can make such a difference.

An orangutan can be fostered by way of an annual donation which is what THN has done on behalf of our staff and clients. We receive regular updates from OFI Australia and happily, we can report that Holland is thriving since entering the Care Centre and is growing and learning every day. She has a healthy appetite we are told, and she loves bananas (of course), rambutans and has recently added mangoes to the mix.

Given her young age, Holland will remain in OFI’s very capable care until she is able to survive on her own, and can be released back to the rainforests of Borneo. And we of course will continue supporting her on your behalf as long as she needs us.

If you would like to support OFI Australia directly, visit www.orangutanfoundation.org.au to foster an orangutan or purchase land today.
