Research Now today announced the launch of OmniGive, a formal program whereby it will donate research services in support of eligible social impact related research work, while its employees gear up for their first annual global team philanthropic effort, entitled Research Now Gives Back.
“When you start a business, you aim to build a company that you and your employees are proud of,” said Chris Havemann, President and CEO. “At Research Now, we are continually working to exceed our commitments to our panelists, our clients and industries, our communities, and each of our team members. We are excited to be launching these new initiatives as a way of giving back and to supplement our existing community and charitable efforts.”
Research Now Gives Back: Think Global, Support Local
Over the course of the next month, employees from the company’s 22 major offices, as well as remote employees worldwide, will team up to help support their local communities through volunteerism and donations. Employees who choose to will be given a half day off to participate in team-volunteer activities in support of their local communities.
Ashley Harlan, Vice President of Corporate Communications, commented: “The idea for Research Now Gives Back came about following a survey conducted among our global Research Now team about community involvement. We received overwhelming support from our team members who said they would likely participate in a volunteer project if the company facilitated such an event. We are looking forward to all the plans underway, and hope to be able to continue and expand this effort in years to come.”
Research Now employees will join together and volunteer at philanthropic and nonprofit organizations in their local communities, engaging with fellow team members on issues they care about most. Events will give particular attention to bettering and supporting education, children-focused initiatives, and disadvantaged and underprivileged residents of the various communities globally.
OmniGive: Donating Research Services in Support of Social Impact Causes
Additionally, Research Now will be donating up to $100,000 worth of data collection services and sample to nonprofits and for-profit businesses doing pro bono work in various markets worldwide throughout the year. Utilizing Research Now’s global Omnibus offerings, OmniGive supports social impact related research work and promotes the benefits of market research to drive all types of insights.

Harlan continued: “While we have previously donated our research services from time to time, the hope is that by establishing OmniGive as a more formalized effort, we can further support and promote the importance of market research and reach organizations such as non-profits that might not typically be able to allocate budget towards conducting research regarding their programs and efforts.”
Research Now participates in additional philanthropic efforts year-round and presents members of its Valued Opinions™ Panel with the option to donate rewards to charitable causes, enabling the company to work alongside its panel communities to support important initiatives around the globe.
