Our Manifesto

Turning nectar into honey.
Information alone is passive. It has no life. It’s the clay before the potter’s wheel, the nectar before the hive. The ability to do something useful with information is power. Framing the right question before asking it. Venturing beyond traditional research. Knowing where the conversation is being held and being there to watch, listen and participate. Finding the vital essence of the information you already have. Shaping that information. Taking that inert data and turning it into a business tool. Turning that nectar into honey. That’s power. The power to inspire your next move.

Information is inspiration.
Or at least it should be. For too long research has delivered bundles of data or findings, loosely tied up with a few noncommittal conclusions. We commit. Clearly and concisely. We’ll tell you what you need to know without the clutter. We’ll leave you with strategies you can implement to make a real difference to your business.

Our Values

It’s not easy to make really good honey. At Metrix, eight key values inform everything that we do (We like to think of them as our secret recipe).

The whole is greater than the sum of its parts
We believe there’s a lot more power in a team that works with each other and for each other, than in a group of individuals working away separately. We work together as a team, to achieve great things.

The client is king
We’ll walk in your shoes. We’ll treat you as we’d like to be treated. We’ll embrace your challenges as if they were our own. We’re in business to serve our clients and we’ll always put you first.

Good is the enemy of Great
We don’t settle for Good. We’re continuously focused on being the best we can be and like to stretch ourselves in every way.

Passion is essential
We are passionate about the business we’re in. We’re passionate about the business you’re in. We live in an interesting world and we can’t get enough of it.

Without fun, what is there?
We believe fun has genius in it. We take our work seriously, but we have fun doing it.

Professionalism is paramount
We acknowledge the trust placed in us, and we like to honour that trust by acting with honesty and integrity in every aspect of our role.

Accountability counts
If we make a promise, we keep it. We take responsibility for our actions (or inaction) and we stand behind everything we say.

Brave thinking
We’re not afraid to make a bold suggestion or challenge the status quo. We believe in questioning the way things are, with a view to making them better.
