Why are surveys conducted?

Surveys are conducted because businesses, governments, public bodies, and similar organisations are interested in the views and attitudes of the people who use their products and services. The more they know about what customers and citizens think, the easier it is for them to improve and adapt what they supply.

How often will I be asked to take surveys?

We send out survey invitations on a regular basis, but cannot say who or when you might receive invitations. This is because each survey is customised and based around the research goals for each individual client. Depending on your profile, we may ask you to complete surveys more or less often. For this reason, we ask you to keep your profile as up to date as possible. Please note some firewalls may prevent delivery of our survey invitations.

How do achievements work?

As you continue completing activities with Global Critique Panel, you’ll level up.
There are 3 level
At each level, there are key milestones required to complete your level.

How do I level up?

Your level is related to your membership, based on your actions like taking surveys and earning rewards.
You can level up by unlocking all the achievements available at your current level in a 365 day period. For example, if you’re a Frist Level member, you need to complete all the available First Level activities to level up and become a Second Level member.
You can also unlock achievements for levels above your current one. For example, if you complete 100% of your survey profile, you’ll get a Third Level status badge – but you cannot reach Third level until you’ve achieved all the necessary achievements.

What is a First Level?

First Level members are just getting started. To reach First Level status, all you have to do is sign up and activate your account.

What is a Third Level member?

Third Level members have reached the top. They have a complete profile, completed fifty activities (or more) and maintain regular activity.

To reach Third Leve status, members must:

  • Complete 100% of their survey profile
  • Take a survey in three consecutive weeks
  • Complete 50 activities

What is a Second Level member?

Second Level members are active and regular members who have almost completed their profile.

To reach Second Level status, members must:

  • Complete 75% of their survey profile
  • Take a survey in three consecutive weeks
  • Complete 25 activities

How do I maintain my level?

It’s simple - keep sharing your opinions. We recommend taking activities at least once a week to maintain your current level.
If you don’t keep it up, you will eventually lose your achievement for consecutive activities and drop down a level.
Similarly, you’ll need to make sure your profile is kept up to date. Certain sections, like technology and automotive, will expire over time – so if your profile completion percentage has dropped since you last logged in, check back and complete any sections that are incomplete.

Where can I see the rewards I have earned from achievements?

The points earned from achievements can be found in your survey history page. This will show as 'community achievement'.

How can I view my achievements?

To see all the achievements you've earned, head to the ‘Achievements' tab.


Does it cost me anything?

No. This donation is separate to your survey rewards and does not affect your points balance.
This does not constitute a donation on your behalf so is not tax deductible.
