Why us?

15 years of experience and innovation.

8 million people surveyed. One focus.


We established Karian and Box in 2006 with two employees, a small client roster and a big ambition: to focus on giving people a better voice at work.

We’ve never lost that focus. We never will. We believe that’s why the clients who started our journey with us are still with us now, and why so many new businesses choose to partner with us today – including two in five FTSE 100 businesses and half of the FTSE 30.

We’ve been trusted advisors to the biggest and the best for more than a decade. We know what matters most in a partner for employee research, strategy and programmes. Our focus on giving people a voice informs the winning formula that we can apply to help you listen better, make meaning and inform action.
