HLB Survey of Business Leaders
About HLB Survey of Business Leaders
First launched in 2020, the HLB Survey of Business Leaders is an annual global piece of research, capturing insight into today’s most pressing business issues through conversations with senior executives from mid-market sized companies.
Survey data collection takes place once a year during the final quarter of the calendar year and includes responses from nearly 50 countries across the globe and several sector verticals. Responses are collected via an online platform as well as by telephone.
Our survey findings are used across multiple HLB insights publications. The data is segmented in various ways and used extensively in publications produced across the HLB network.
Now in its fourth consecutive year, we aim to produce valuable insight from and for business leaders from mid-market size companies, that helps navigate today’s challenging business landscape and inform important decision-making.
