RI Corporate Members
RI Alliance Partners
The Institute has agreements with several alliance partners. In particular, RI works closely with:
Harris Interactive: RI has an agreement with Harris Interactive, the leader in online market research, to conduct reputation surveys with stakeholder groups. These surveys rely on the Reputation Quotient (RQ), a proprietary instrument that was developed by RI Executive Director Charles Fombrun with Harris Interactive. The RI sponsored the creation of the Annual RQ surveys of the general public that are now conducted in over 10 countries and published in leading media around the world.
Delahaye-Medialink: The RI partnered with Delahaye to develop the MRi --an analytical tool for examining the impact of media coverage on corporate reputations. The method relies on both manual and electronic content analysis to provide detailed assessment of positive/negative coverage, broken down into the RQ dimensions.
The Reputation Institute also welcomes individual members and currently counts some 400 members who regularly participate in our conferences and journals. The RI's membership consists of about 60% academics and 40% practitioners from leading universities and companies around the world.
