Simetrica-Jacobs is a research consultancy specialising in social value, wellbeing research and impact evaluation. Through our expert analysis and strategic advice, we help organisations measure what matters most – the value that their work brings to people and communities.
We’re specialists in social value measurement, wellbeing analysis, data science and impact evaluation, business ethics behavioural science and survey design. We provide cutting-edge research and advice of highest levels of scientific rigour to governments, international organisations, and the private and not-for-profit sectors covering some of the most important and pressing areas of policy. We use only the best possible evidence and methodologies and follow internationally-endorsed methods set out in OECD and government-produced guidelines – many of which we’ve written and contributed to.
Working across a range of sectors, our work gives clients the intelligence and confidence to make sound business decisions, including investments, options appraisals, strategy development, business cases and development consent orders. This work is pivotal, because when you know for sure that you’re doing good - for the greater good - you can keep making smart decisions that benefit everyone.
