Schlesinger Group COVID-19 Update

We are reopening our facilities in the US and Europe in line with government directive and with our Responsible In-Person Research plan implemented. The Schlesinger COVID-19 Taskforce meets daily to monitor in-person research outcomes to ensure we continue to conduct in-person research responsibly and effectively. We remain busy conducting online qual and quant studies and hybrid solutions.

Risk-Free In-Person Studies

Researchers are planning and conducting in-person research. We have developed a Risk-Free Solution (valid until August 31, 2020) to support you:

  1. If you book facility rooms now and have to cancel, we will waive the standard room cancellation fees.
  2. When providing you with a quote to execute an in-person project, we will safeguard the project by including a quote to execute the project online. We will have recruited respondents who are willing and able to participate in-person or online. If we are unable to execute the work in-person due to safety or other concerns, the work can proceed online so you can meet your research objectives.
  3. And, even if we need to postpone or cancel the online version of the project, we will waive those fees, provided recruitment has not started.
  4. If you are unable or prefer not to travel to our facilities to view your study, we can book FocusVision streaming on your behalf at a special Schlesinger Group flat rate of $750 per day. This generous discount on FocusVision’s standard rate is valid with Schlesinger facility hire up to August 31st.
  5. If your multi-market research is impacted by changing travel restrictions, subject to availability, you are welcome to stay on and work from our facility, as we switch your study to an online solution.  
  6. If you require local moderators, we can support this.
  7. Our teams will continue to work with you to help overcome project challenges. Together, we will find a solution.
