IW-Panels

Companies and their employees are facing a variety of challenges: New opportunities due to technological progress, global economic relations and global competition, demographic change and the skilled labor situation - and unfortunately also crisis-ridden events in the world.

Our colleagues in the IW's thematic clusters are constantly faced with the task of showing how companies in Germany are positioned, what lines of development they are facing and whether politicians are taking appropriate measures to support entrepreneurial activity and thus the German economy.

The IW Panels cooperation cluster designs and organizes surveys of companies and employees for the experts in the topic clusters or external clients. In addition to the IW Future Panel and the IW Personnel Panel, the KC also provides individual surveys.

We accompany the entire survey process from conception, budgeting and proposal preparation, through questionnaire design, programming and implementation of the online survey, to data cleansing, extrapolation and evaluation. As survey experts, we always seek an intensive professional exchange with the experts in the topic clusters.
