MRWho - People and skills in Market Research
1st July 2004

Issue 20 - June 2004

Hot Half Dozen article, June '04

MRWho, now in it's 3rd year, is a supplement to DRNO, subtitled 'People and Skills in Market Research', and looking at recruitment, training, salaries and benefits, loyalty, teambuilding and all other aspects of human resources for the MR profession.

June '04 Edition - Hot Half Dozen

Only the second MRWho of the year, although things should revert to more-or-less normal now.

Our lead article - available in HTML here - looks in detail at six of the fastest-growing UK research agencies, combining large and small and several different specialisms within their number, in a celebration of the good times returning to much of the industry and the generally upbeat mood. Love and Hate goes Stateside and finds one researcher Having A Nice Day and another about ready to hang up his spurs, and under the heading of 'Skills and Trends in Field' we look at the rise of a new breed of Field-based Project Manager. Job and salary stats look at regional differences and there is the usual assortment of senior level personnel news and vacancies plus two pages of international jobs.

MRWho has about 900 subscribers including a majority of the bosses of major UK agencies and around 320 blue chip clientside researchers. It's free and comes in a .pdf format so most people print it out, although you can read it on-screen if you prefer. The June edition was published on 15/6/04 and is available for download from this site (see bottom right) - you'll need a password and for this you'll need to subscribe. If you'd like to, just email us and say so, giving us your email address (and those of anyone else there who wants it), your JobTitle(s) and the name of your company - this will only be used for our own stats, ie so we can give advertisers general information about the types of people reading it - and for our own analysis / edification. Re confidentiality of this: we are MRS members and you know the drill! Please state clearly whether you just want passwords to download previous editions or if [like 90% plus] you wish to receive forthcoming issues too. There's no reason not to as it's free.

If you're not in an HR function and you think your company's personnel or training people would be interested, please let them know - there is no limit to the number of subscribers per company, of course.
