-Market research firm recognized for revenue growth, culture and staying power –
SAN DIEGO – June 24, 2014 – gap intelligence, a values-led market research firm, announced today it was named “Outstanding Emerging Business” at the recent San Diego Chamber of Commerce 2014 Small Business Awards.
The firm was specifically recognized for its history as an established San Diego County-based business with significant revenue growth, unique culture and staying power.
“What makes gap intelligence unique is that we’re a values-led market research firm
founded on the idea that business has a responsibility to the people and city that make its existence possible,” said gap intelligence Founder and President Gary Peterson. “That’s why the validation of being honored by our local Chamber is a profound honor.”
gap intelligence recently went through a metamorphosis from a firm focused on what and how to do business to why it’s in business. Finding its “why” led to several culture-first initiatives such an in-house institute of higher education called “gapU” that
translates to increases in retention, productivity, and scalability within the company.
Another company culture standout is its “3T’s” philanthropic committee dedicated to
giving time, talent, and treasure to San Diegans in need. This group organizes monthly and quarterly charity events including serving meals at the San Diego Food Bank, beach cleanups, a blood drive and an annual golf tournament that raised $32,000 to benefit the Emilio Nares Foundation. ENF is a local nonprofit dedicated to helping
navigate families through their child’s journey with cancer.
The firm also experienced a major overhaul this year by bringing data collection and software development entirely in-house. These tools help position the company as a leader in the very complex and constantly changing IT, consumer electronics, imaging and home appliance industries.
The Chamber is the largest nonprofit advocate for the San Diego regional business community. It is the most influential business network and resource for growing commerce in the San Diego region with nearly 3,000 members representing 400,000 employees.
