The data remains the property of Glow and as such can only be published with explicit approval from Glow. Other than limited excerpts, data can’t be shared outside of your organisation without Glow’s approval.
Glow retains the right to decide what data it will or will not publish. However, it is currently not Glow’s policy to publish SRS data in its entirety. Glow’s objective is to help all businesses do better so we prefer to publish data that shines a light on those businesses leading the way and setting a positive example for others.
SRS is highly customizable, so prices vary based on the specific requirements of the client and whether they are purchasing the tracker, the diagnostic or a bundle.
Data snapshots start from as little as $2,000.
Yes. Our pricing is based on the specific requirements of each project and as such any multi market agreement will factor this into the relevant price.
Data is from online research using Glow’s own platform that sources respondents from global panel providers. For SRS we ensure a nationally representative sample by matching against census data proportions on Age, Gender and Location.
We currently run SRS tracking surveys monthly in the US, UK and AU. We can also undertake diagnostic studies or, if sufficient client requirement, set up an ongoing tracker in almost any other market globally.
Glow’s respondents are sourced from a number of high-quality panel providers that specialise in recruiting respondents using online and offline methods that ensure representativeness. These panels are incentivised online panels that reward people for completing surveys. Our panel partners and their methodologies are endorsed by the relevant research industry bodies in each market in which we capture respondent data.
SRS Tracking provides a quarterly update of data (Jan, April, July, Oct) unless specific different delivery schedules are agreed within a subscription contract.
SRS Diagnostic and custom research with SRS benchmarks provide a one off output approximately 4 weeks post project confirmation.
Social Responsibility Score is different to brand tracking or reputation measurement. It is a bespoke measure of social and environmental responsibility designed to specifically capture consumers' views of your brand in relation to ESG performance. It enables you to compare your performance against industry benchmarks and hundreds of other brands as well against 13 drivers of performance across Environmental, Social and Governance.
It is a much more specific measure of social responsibility for brands who have significant ESG investments already in place or who are developing their approach and want to ensure it takes account of consumer demands.
The majority of the metrics that exist are not consumer based. They tend to be measures of the potential impact of a company’s stated ESG strategy or assessment of delivery of stated strategy. These measures are generally based on publicly reported data sourced from annual reports, so are often a mix of what companies plan to do and are doing, and don’t assess what consumers think of the company’s plans or performance.
Glow's metric is different because it has been built from the ground up over the last two years using feedback from tens of thousands of consumers to understand what elements of ESG are important to consumers and that influence their choice of brands.
