How Organizations across Industries are Leveraging Employee Insights to Produce Cutting-Edge Market Research

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Recognizing that employees are often a company's greatest asset, many leading organizations have begun to capture critical product and market insights by using their own employees in "internal" market research studies.
