For example:  In partnership with The Greater Des Moines Partnership, a major Midwest partnership of economic and community development organizations,  we designed, deployed and analyze the Central Iowa Human Capital Survey. The survey assesses local talent in the community and in the workplace. The survey is deployed annually to over 4,700 businesses and their employees. The data analysis and reporting provide direction to community leaders on additional efforts needed to improve the quality of life in Central Iowa.
