Business Sector Image

Our work here has included policy and service evaluations for Acas, Citizens Advice, and government departments such as the Cabinet Office and the department for Business, Innovation and Skills.

For example, through in-depth interviews, group discussions or case studies, as well as more targeted or short questionnaires, we have evaluated workplace mediation services and in-depth advisory services; extensively researched certain groups of professionals such as vets and doctors; undertaken staff surveys for large organisations; explored public licensing of charitable collections; and identified the needs of vulnerable workers.

Many of our reports in this area have been posted in the public domain by our clients, for example at


We asked Alpha Research to help us with a survey in connection with a course on mediation training in the workplace – the purpose was to understand the impact of the course on those who attended. We found Alpha Research easy to work with, they were prompt in responding, and their report was delivered on time. What made them stand out for us was the innovative approach they took which proved very successful: they thought of looking at things in ways we had not previously considered, which produced more insightful results.
