“Having held a number of staff events on the survey, I cannot praise enough the quality of the data and the way it has been presented. Interesting, informative and easy to understand. BMG made every effort to provide information that is easy to understand and received on time (often ahead of time). The lasting impression is one of confidence in the quality of the data and information, and of the level of response from BMG.” Office for Nuclear Regulation


“I worked with Simon Maydew for 4 years during my time as Head of Communications, Customer Service and Digital with Suffolk County Council. Simon led the development of the Suffolk County Council employee survey between 2012 and 2016. I found Simon to be highly knowledgeable, professional and responsive. The quality of the work produced by Simon and BMG was excellent. One of the key things that Simon offers is the ability to apply sound research techniques to practical management actions. In addition the flexibility to adapt his approach to meet the needs of the organisation. A practical example of this was Suffolk’s wish to measure the adaptability of our workforce. Simon developed an adaptability matrix that allowed us to identify areas of strength and areas for development. We were able to use this information to direct management action. The work done by Simon and BMG accelerated culture change across the organisation.” Simon Higgins (Head of Communications, Customer Service and Digital, Suffolk County Council)

“BMG provide an excellent customer focused service and our experience has been that they focus on solutions rather than problems. Their written reports are very well written and easy to understand. In addition to our annual employee engagement survey, BMG carried out a number of focus groups and depth interviews for us at very short notice earlier this year – the focus groups ran well and the work was completed to a tight timeframe. In terms of the employee engagement survey findings, the presentation was well structured and detailed.” Michele Ekins (Head of HR, Health Research Authority)
