We measure our success by the success of our clients. Our clients continue working with us because our only focus is on creating positive results. When our clients report positive impacts to their business as a result of our engagements, we know we’ve done our job. To monitor our performance, an independent market research firm and the U.S. Department of Commerce survey our clients. As part of their analysis of our effectiveness, they call upon our clients approximately 12 months after their engagements in order to determine the bottom-line impact of our services on their businesses. The graphic below represents the economic benefits that clients attributed directly to their 2017 NEPIRC engagements throughout the year ended December 31, 2018.
