Get rewarded for your insights

Chief Executive Research: Actionable Business Intelligence for CEOs

Chief Executive Group conducts regular research on topical issues affecting business to bring CEOs and our C-Suite communities timely insights, unique peer benchmarking data and best practices based on real-world experience.

But we understand that as CEO, your time is valuable, so to thank you for your contribution to our research, we have created a research panel that awards you points every time you complete one of our surveys.

The points, which are cumulative, can be redeemed as follows:

50 points: 10% off any Chief Executive event or product*

100 points: 20% off any Chief Executive event or product*

150 points: 30% off any Chief Executive event or product*

*cannot be combined with any other offers.

Points are assigned based on the length of each survey. For instance, completing our monthly CEO Confidence Index flash poll awards you 10 points. A longer survey, such as our annual CEO & Senior Executive Compensation survey or our Financial Benchmarks survey can provide up to 50 points each, making it easier and faster to reach the top tier of rewards.

The panel is free to join for any CEO of a U.S. organization. Register today by filling the form below.
