In January and February of 2006 the Design Futures Council and DesignIntelligence surveyed leading firms believed to be “best practices” in the architecture, engineering, and design fields.

A total of 107 offices participated in the survey. Firms of all sizes (small – under 20, medium – under 50, and large) participated. Collectively the firms employed over ten thousand employees. Not all firms answered all questions. The firms were told that all responses would be kept in confidence. Firms participating receive a more complete summary and analysis of the research report. A driving goal of this compensation and benefits research is to get quality information from the nations leading firms and to keep the questions at a sophisticated yet abbreviated level.

The research administrator of the survey is the Greenway Group, Inc. They independently collected the completed surveys and detached the front cover sheet from the responses to assure confidentiality. All data is compiled, aggregated, and organized so that no firm or individual can be identified. An officer of each participating firm signed and dated the completed questionnaire listing their position and responsibility in the firm. Greenway Group validated the authenticity of the responses. The responses from outside the United States including Canada, Mexico, and Europe are not included in this report although this information may be used in other DesignIntelligence reports in the future. Responses received after March first are not included in the research summary but some are in the separate report provided complimentary to those firms participating. Professional practices wanting to participate in the 2007-2008 research are invited to submit requests to the Greenway Group, Inc. 25 Technology Parkway South, suite 101, Norcross, Georgia 30092 or by writing to Mary Pereboom, Principal for Research and Administration by clicking the contact link on this page. There is no expense to participate and research reports are provided free to members of the Design Futures Council who participate in the studies.
