Kantar has the largest infrastructure of digital-based research platforms of any organisation in the world. All of this allows us to provide robust evidence to better understand citizens and the direct and indirect impacts of the pandemic. Our expert advisors and consultants can work with clients to interpret this evidence and build for a resilient recovery.

  • Understand the impacts of financial hardship due to lower household income and resulting attitudes and behaviours amongst vulnerable population segments.
  • Discover how to minimise the physical and mental health risks resulting from social distancing and isolation.
  • Anticipate the shape of the ‘new normal’ and shifts in perspective, attitudes and behaviours amongst generations and different socio-economic groups, and the implications for a range of policy areas.
