MSCI’s annual surveys are promoted to member companies by sending an e-mail invitation to both the CEO and the top functional staff member whose area of expertise aligns with the survey being promoted. For example, in addition to the company CEO the top Human Resources person at a company will receive survey requests for our Compensation Surveys, the top safety person will receive Safety Survey participation requests, the top Information Technology person will receive IT Survey requests, and so on.
