JOANNE GAINEN, Ph.D., President
Joanne Gainen, President and Senior Survey Consultant, helps managers and consultants reliably and painlessly obtain online customer and employee feedback and analyze results for maximum impact on business objectives.
Joanne established her first business, The Survey Company, in 1996. Her passion for streamlining data collection and reporting led her to focus the company exclusively on Internet surveys, including online 360-degree feedback assessments and more recently, online focus groups.
Drawing on her background in instruction and research, Joanne uses statistical analysis, high-impact charts and brief narrative explanations to clarify results and simplify interpretation. These tools enable organizations to set priorities based on a sound, statistically valid understanding of what drives strategic business outcomes such as employee morale and productivity or customer satisfaction and loyalty.
Joanne works with clients to tailor surveys and reports to their specific organizational needs and culture. She is a psychologist (Ph.D. University of Washington) with nearly 20 years of experience in design, management, and analysis of surveys for individual and organizational feedback and development.
