A family business since 1999

Implementing surveys is like cooking: The results can only be as good as the raw materials
PFM Research i Sverige AB’s core expertise is data collection. Our customers include some of Sweden’s most well-known survey companies and opinion institutes, who expect the highest quality data.
We focus on quality when it comes to data collection. We know that a survey must always be based on the highest data quality. Otherwise it won’t reflect reality and won’t provide the reliable basis for decision-making it was intended to.
Whatever type of survey you choose to implement, we make sure you get the right method and that the samples are correct and reliable. Thanks to 20 years of experience and our pedantic precision, we guarantee that our deliveries are always of the highest quality.
Now over to Fredrik Jönsson, CEO.
Happy birthday to us!
In the same year that the hit television series Tre Kronor ended on TV4, Manchester United won the treble and Charlotte Perrelli (neé Nilsson) won the Eurovision Song Contest with “Take me to your heaven”, the Jönsson family took over PFM Research i Sverige AB, back then a company with just two customers.
20 years on, we are an established provider of data collection services on the Swedish market with thirteen permanent employees and annual sales of over SEK 34 million.
The key to success
I am convinced we owe our success to our unstinting focus on quality, combined with our good reputation and excellent customer relationships. Our internal strengths, which contribute to our success, are skills development, excellent teamwork, strong collaboration, a non-hierarchical approach and the conviction that everyone is equal regardless of their position.
I would like to thank Jonas Eriksson, Sweden’s most successful football referee, who was a guest speaker at our conference in Åre. He spoke about enterprise and leadership in industry. He discussed decision-making in stressful situations and how he handled the pressure when 22 players, 75,000 spectators and several hundred million TV viewers disagreed with his decision.
He talked about meeting the world’s greatest football stars such as Messi, Zlatan and Ronaldo, and how he dealt with their egos. He drew parallels with how managers (referees) get their employees (players) to accept decisions that are made.
During his talk, Jonas emphasised the importance of allowing ourselves to learn and trust each other, and to fuse together new and old competence.
His talk gave all of us in the company an inspiring start to our 2019 anniversary year. Thank you, Jonas, for a fascinating, rewarding and entertaining talk.
