Research Runner commended at the 2021 MRS Operations Awards

Research Runner is proud to have been recently awarded with the ‘Highly Commendable’ badge at the 2021 Market Research Society (MRS) Operations Awards!

Research Runner’s entry for the award focused on our sales support packages that we rolled out during the pandemic to help market research agencies around the world with lead generation. It led to our company being listed as a finalist in the ‘Best Support Services’ category.

“We are honoured and proud to win the Highly Commended Award for Best Support Services 2021 at the MRS Operations Awards, said Julian Haste, MD of Research Runner. “Very proud of our journey as to where we have come over the last 11 years and looking forward to many more.

“Thank you to our fabulous clients and everyone who works for Research Runner. What a great team we have and continue to grow in strength. It’s been a tough time through COVID for many, but we have come through it together and fighting fit for the future ahead. Thank you.”

The feedback:

“The variety and ingenuity in the Best Support Services category always makes it a very difficult call for the judges, and before we share the winner there are two Highly Commended finalists. They are: @EMPOWER_mrx & @research_runner,” said The MRS Society in a Tweet.

“Well done – this was an incredibly tight category and being a finalist was a great achievement in itself.”

“So well deserved,” continued Jane Frost, CEO at The Market Research Society.

“WELL DONE Julian, Tracey and all your hard working team,” said Paul Griffin, Accredited Security/Family Chauffeur at Johnson Personal.

“You deserve the success and the highly commended Award for Best Support Services because that’s exactly what you provide…. superb result.”

Research Runner was also selected as finalists in the MRS Operational Awards for Best Support Services in both 2019 and 2021.

We are excited to keep adding to our lead generation team and are delighted to announce that we currently have positions available for ambitious salespeople to join the Research Runner team.
