Humankind Research: People led insight that makes good things happen. At Humankind Research we use people-first methodologies and a full suite of qualitative and market research tools to uncover what people think, feel and do. Our experience ranges from comms development in the U.K. to understanding lives of marginalised girls in Sierra Leone, and spans a huge range of targets, regions and topics in between.
Have you ever been curious about what people really think, feel and do? Humankind Research are on a mission to get to the bottom of exactly that — by using their unique people-first methodologies and qualitative research tools. They really are experts of the mind. B Corp certified, Humankind Research focuses on providing research for charities, foundations and socially-responsible corporate clients. And if that hasn’t got you hooked, their approach to flexibility, inclusion and ensuring the team are equipped with everything they need, from mental health support to regular team retreats, is one that makes for a happy workplace.
