How the study was conducted
VTT was surveyed by T-Media as part of its Luottamus&Maine 2021 survey, which is a reputation survey evaluating several organizations. The reputation of each organization was measured using eight dimensions on a scale of 1 to 5: governance, finance, leadership, renewal, interaction, products & services, workplace, and responsibility.
A total of 8,807 Finns participated in the study. Of these, 1975 Finns rated VTT's reputation, of which 204 gave a valid rating. The data collection of the study was carried out with an electronic questionnaire on 7 Oct. – 11 Nov. 2021. The target group was Finns aged 15–65 nationwide excluding Åland. The sample is weighted to represent the population by sex, age and area of residence.
