Lunch Challenge – Part 2

by Hasson Associates November 23rd, 2012

Sandwiches. That favourite British lunch item. I do love tucking into a sandwich but at Pret or Eat there are only so many varieties that I can go through before I get a bit bored. Also being a growing lad (unfortunately sideways) I don’t feel that the chain stores offer big enough portions and I’m […]


Misconceptions v the grizzly truth about working from home

by Kate Langford November 19th, 2012

I have worked from home 4 out of 5 days since 2004.  This was the ideal solution after I moved to the Kent coast and didn’t fancy re-training as a fish gutter!  Working from home has enabled me to have the perfect work/ life balance – taking my children to school and avoiding a really […]


Ping Pong Social

by Hasson Associates November 8th, 2012

So…where did the Hasson Associate’s team go for their autumn social? It has to be the one and only Bounce based near Chancery lane station for a fun game of ping pong! On arrival, the obvious first stop was the bar where we found a range of beverages including a menu of mouth watering cocktails, […]


Charity, does it begin at home or work?

by Sarah Penny November 7th, 2012

Seeing as it’s starting to look a lot like Christmas and soon we’ll be clamouring to the shops to buy our work-mates and family loved ones the usual and the unusual tat that looks like the perfect gift in November and December, but in January we all wonder why! So, when we buy our Christmas […]


Farewell October…..

by Sinead Hasson October 31st, 2012

So October has come to an end, Halloween costumes are packed away, the leaves have pretty much fallen and we are in freefall to Christmas. But what happened in the world of market research recruitment and how does that impact on you? You may have noticed an increase in new jobs being posted on job […]


The great Hasson bake off

by Hasson Associates October 29th, 2012

A very important question – who is the best baker at Hasson Associates? Could it be me? Well, the only dangerous competitors that I have encountered so far are Sarah and Kate, but given their recent lack of participation I would say, yes, it’s me.  In German we would say ‘Eigenlob stinkt’ for praising myself […]


My daily lunch challenge

by Hasson Associates October 22nd, 2012

When I was asked to contribute something to the Hasson Associates blog, the decision of what content I would contribute was actually taken out of my hands. Sinead and my colleagues felt the one thing that I had to contribute to the wider world, would not be to pass on my years of recruitment knowledge […]


Christmas Thoughts in October

by Hasson Associates October 12th, 2012

It’s that time of year …Where do we go? When do we go? What do we eat? What do we wear? It can only mean one thing: It’s time for the long drawn out discussion on the HA Christmas party. In our short existence we’ve done quite well. Year 1: The Hungarian restaurant – followed […]


What do you want to be when you grow up?

by Sinead Hasson October 11th, 2012

It’s important that you keep this question in mind even when you are “grown up” and have started working. There is a very good chance that it wasn’t to be a market researcher but now that you’re I hope that you are enjoying it. At the early stages your career can often be a practical […]
