Happy Holidays from KJT!

As we come to the close of 2021, all of us here at KJT would like to thank our valued clients and industry partners for another strong year of growth and accomplishment.

As the world continues to battle the residual effects of the pandemic, our work within the healthcare segment has become ever more critical. During the last 12 months, we’re proud to have helped provide the data and insights needed to improve health and wellness outcomes around the world.

Some of the agency’s biggest news from 2021:

ISO 27001 Certification

The stakes are high when it comes to information security in the healthcare segment, where data breaches can truly affect people’s lives. Having gone through the ISO 27001 accreditation process and our recent surveillance audit successfully, we can confidently say, KJT is up to the task!

Rebranding KJT

During the busiest year in KJT’s history, the company’s leadership felt the time was right to launch a disciplined brand strategy that reflects who we are today as a company, anchored by our core values.

Our People, Our Culture

Our company’s accomplishments in 2021 would not have been possible without the support of a world-class KJT team. Our staff is filled to the brim with intellectual curiosity and the passion to interpret meaning and answer critical questions. This is what anchors our unique ability to achieve differentiated market insight and evidence on behalf of our customers.

Our corporate culture is also very important in producing great research outcomes. As a 100% employee-owned company, every team member thinks like a leader, which enables more innovative problem-solving and overall continuous improvement across the business.

This top-notch team and KJT’s unique working environment have been honored several times in 2021 with three prestigious workplace awards including recognition as a Great Place to Work-Certified® company – as well as having our workplace wellness program (Wellness by Design) recognized for the third time by the Rochester Business Journal. In addition, KJT was named one of Rochester’s 2021 Top Workplaces by the Democrat & Chronicle (D&C).

As a woman-led business, we’re also proud to have been named a finalist by the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce and its Women’s Council affiliate for the ATHENA International Organizational Award®, with award recipients to be presented on January 20, 2022. Our nomination was based on the KJT culture that encourages female employees to achieve their full leadership potential, while supporting leadership development opportunities for women and girls in the community.

It is KJT’s great honor to be recognized for championing exceptional women leaders – both present and future! Many thanks to Jess Spilman, Clare Murphy, Taylor Hodge and Anna Wunderlich for their important work on this project.

All-in-all, it’s been a great year for KJT. In 2022, we’ll be serving you from a new location. (Please note, the company just moved to a new space at 777 Canal View Blvd, Suite 1400, Rochester, NY 14623.)

Next year also marks our 15th year anniversary of incorporation. We thank our customers and employees for helping to make KJT the company it is today. For friends, partners and colleagues, old and new, please accept KJT’s wishes for a safe, healthy and happy holiday. We look forward to seeing you in the New Year!
